Le Jardin, Gardener's Journal, Christmas Ornament

I just came back from a retreat this weekend.  How amazing to be able to sew and eat for three days.

I just finished Le Jardin block 7 which is the on on the bottom.  On the top are two other blocks from le Jardin which I have just joined.  I just started Block 8 and only one more to go YIPPEE!  It is such a beautiful quilt.  I had lots of compliments on it on the weekend at my retreat.

My dog, Molly, loves this quilt also!  She is so cute!

Oh and Block F of A Gardener's Journal is finished.  What a pretty quilt and such fun embroidery.  I love the embroidery.  This has been such a fun stitch a long with Chookyblue just a couple more blocks to go and then put together and quilted.

Here is something else I just finished - a cute embroidered ornament.  I have had so many compliments on this ornament.  I just have to add a hanger.

More later,


  1. lots of beautiful work..........great to see another block done.........

  2. Another one down on A Gardeners Journal...you'll be finished soon! Thanks for your lovely comments on my quilt top. I have stitched An Angels Story...it sits on my daughters bed, and she loves it very very much. It's done in pinks and greens, not so bright as A Gardeners Journal. I think I'll do A Family Gathering next...love the caravan in it!
    Happy stitching xxx
