JOURNEY OF A QUILTER

Please celebrate with me! :-)

I have finished my "Journey of a Quilter" by Leanne Beasley of Leanne's House. I am beyond excited. I've been dancing, twirling and skipping across the Surface of the Sun as I celebrate this completion. It's been a true labor of love and one that I have enjoyed immensely.

If you're responsible for inspiring me to start doing embroidery or responsible for introducing me to all the wonderful stitchery designers in Australia I can't thank you enough.

It's important to say thank you for all the inspiration that so many bloggers provide everyday!

In Friendship!
