A Gardener's Journal

I have just finished my first block for A Gardner's Journal and I think it has turned out great!  I am having so much fun with this quilt that right now my others have been pushed to the side.  Oh well will get back to them eventually.  Here is a picture of my first block and my inner and outer border fabrics:

I love doing the stitching as it is so relaxing and great for sitting outside and just stitching away by the pool.  I have met lots of friends already on this journey and each day new blocks seem to magically appear.

Here is a picture of a quilt I just recently finished.  It is called Darjeeling and is made with Antique Serenity fabrics.  Isn't it beautiful?  I quilted it myself and I love the way it has turned out.  I took a class at my local quilt shop with one of my most favourite teachers, Irene:

Chow for now and back to my stitcheries!!!!

My first post and new to blogging

This is my first blog. I just created my blog today. I am an avid quilter. I love stitching, quilting and everything and anything to do with fabric.

I have just joined the A Gardener's Journal stitch-a-long led by ChookyBlue and it is going to be an awesome time. Take a look if you get a chance.

I love my family - I have a wonderful husband and two daughters, and my pets, my sweet Chocolate Lab, Molly and my sweet fat tabby cat, Rory. My daughters also have two hamsters.

I love gardening also.

I am crazy about Bunny Hill designs right now. I am working on the following:

Baltimore Bunnies
Rabbits Prefer Chocolate
A Vintage Christmas
Autumn House
Le Jardin
Bunny Patch - just finished piecing.
A Tisket A Tasket
and am starting the free mystery block of the month - Snowbound.

There are lots more, but am focusing mainly on my Bunny Hill quilts.

Brigette at Bunny Hill is my best, most favourite internet buddy.  I am so glad to have found her.

I am so new to blogging that I have lots to learn, like how to post pictures.

Once I figure out how to set up things, I willl post some pictures.
