1st SAL.....Peg, Dale and I committed to stitching Anni Downs - A Gardener's Journal in March.

May blocks finished!

Computer Crashed!
Did it have something to do with the extended power outage?
who knows.
Using Husband's to post these photos of
my May blocks
traced with a flashlight in my light box
and stitched partly by candle light.

very nice and when you have it hanging at Christmas you will remember the lengths you went to to finish these blocks, my eyesight would never hold up by candle light

Sewing by candle light - that is doing it tough!1 Love your blues - I am doing it in blues too - just the same tones as you - but with a variegated blue thread. I am not a SALer - dilly dallyed far too long. Never mind - maybe next time.

Susan,
I went to your blog and tried to see your TIS blocks. Have you not posted them?

These blocks are really nice. I like the blue colour, and that you just use blue, not mix it with other colours. Lovely. Look forward to see the whole quilt sometime before Christmas.
