Another little interruption...

Sorry girls but I'm so excited I just had to pop in & show you my completed Gardener's Journal top....





I actually finished all the embroidery at the start of December and had it all pieced except for the last two seams and the borders the week before Christmas but didn't get the photos or time to post about it.....
 so better late than never......
now I'm thinking about how to quilt it machine or by hand......
and btw you girls are all going so well with your skofw ....the blocks are looking fabulous.....
happy stitching .....
