A Gardener's Journal~~~~FINISHED





Hi Everyone, Dzintra here
doing a great big Happy Dance wooo hoooo
my Gardener's Journal quilt is finally finished
and I am soooo happy with it!!!

I remember a few months into starting this quilt I broke my arm which just put me back several months in everything and at one stage wondered if I would ever get it done!!!  I'll never take the use of 2 arms for granted again....

Thank you so much Chooky and Peg who are the inspiration for doing this
and also thank you to all the fellow stitchers out there for all the support and encouragement along the way in getting this quilt finally completed....
I have thoroughly enjoyed doing my Gardener's Journal and I will bring it up to Nundle next year to show it off.....

Till then.....Happy Stitching
'bye, Dzintra xoxo
