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

Da Dah! Finished!!!

Yay, hooray! Mark me off Chookyblue, and get me onto that SKofW list please. I'm done!

Actually finished!
I did predict that I would be finished about the 31st or 32nd of September. I'm surprised it took me until the 35th of September, but am pleased to be finished now. The photos are dreadful because I took them at 9pm, but I wanted to blog sooner rather than later. I basted my two Tis the Season quilts this morning so the second one is on my machine waiting to be quilted tomorrow. I don't have a clear idea as to how I want to quilt the second one. It will take some thinking, some consideration I think. I machine quilted the first by stitching in the middle of all the borders and sashings. The binding was machine done.

Back, I just pieced all my leftovers, including two stitcheries and I love it!
Quilting in progress
So more quilting awaits me tomorrow. I'm having a lovely week!
