2013 SAL .......here goes......

Hello fellow SAL'ers, I am happy to be joining in with you again, after sitting out the Some Kind of Wonderful quilt.  I have just finished my first Thread Catcher, and I think there will be a few more of these in my future, they really are so quick and easy......


After seeing Chookyblue's decorative stitches, I tried out this heart stitch, something I very rarely use, but I like the way it's turned out. 

Happy sewing to you all........... Nicky
