Just introducing myself!

Hello everyone, I am Elaine and I blog over at Emily's Cupboard I am originally from Aberdeen Scotland but I now live in England on the river about 20 miles west of London. I have been following the SAL blog since the beginning, but I have always been too late to join in! I have ordered my pattern and I have also ordered some background fabrics from the US, goodness knows how long they will take to get here, I hope I don't fall too far behind.

I am really looking forward to stitching along with you all, I made 'An Angel's Story' a few years ago, it is one of my favourite quilts.

Welcome Elaine
Love your Angel Story quilt -
I have the pattern for that quilt - and have used one of the blocks as part of my sewing machine cover...not as noteworthy as a whole quilt . . but time is limited...
