Sunday Show and Tell


I have a little something to show you today :)

 After a rather extended stay at the quilters (almost 12 months!) I am very very excited to show you my completed A Gardeners Journal quilt! WOOOHOOOOOO!

 Such bright colours! Such wonderful texture! Such glorious completion! LOL

The quilting was worth the wait, it is really lovely...
 ...especially from the back :)

 I sat in the lovely cool airconditioning this morning and stitched a label to finish it off...
...and now it's hanging in my lounge room! Words can't really express how happy I am to have this quilt finished...thanks to all of you wonderful girls for your support and encouragement along the way :)

Happy stitching...
