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

My Journey Finished.


The night before "Girls Day in The Country" with Anni Downs my friend Gail( not in the photo) Kate and myself were trying to get the bind stitched down.  Betty Field from Cowra quilted it for me ...the quilting is so nice.





Ta Da here it is Natures Journey finished.... Thank you Chooky for running the stitch along and thank you all out there in blogland for keeping me motivated. It would not have happened without you all.
