Springbrook stitching

I started a new litttle quilt called "My Country Garden" which has a little more embroidery in it as I had been wanting to do a bit more for a while. I figured if I can't grow a cottage garden I'll just stitch one. I worked on the first block on retreat and I am quite pleased with it. I am really enjoying it and look forward to stitching each block and choosing colours etc. I designed these stitcheries in 2009 and sometimes it just takes me that long to get to a project. I shall keep you posted as I progress.
Have a great day everyone I'm off to my quilting group after first getting a big peek at my friend Ann's published projects in one of the Card Magazines.....Hopefully I can take a photo to show you.
Blessings and Happy Stitching,
