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

A Finish....Yeah!!


I was given the pleasure of quilting Lynda's quilt


Lynda from (AussieNeedleNut) has done a fantastic job on this quilt her stitching is
beautiful, she has kindly let me put this up as she has 
given up on blogging (technical issues).

I quilted what I call hodge podge all over, meandering between
the stitcheries and then a feathered border.


You can see the border better in this shot.


So heres hoping Lynda loves my quilting, she hasn't seen it
yet as DH and I are heading to the country to
deliver it this weekend.

She has told me its OK to post so she can get a sneak peak.

So now I will get on and quilt mine and hopefully soon I can post
my finish...yeah!!!

Happy Stitching!
