Did you hear it?


Did you just hear the squeal of delight which came from my house? Here I am, just about 12 hours before October finishes ( actually I got an extra hour due to daylight savings) with a finished Gardeners Journal top.
 
 
I started this one with a layer cake and a few extra pieces so I ended up with quite a variety of fabric.
I might have been slow but I do enjoy being part of a group all stitching together. Thank you to everyone for taking part and of course to the wonderful Chooky.
