A little bit of rain but a beautiful day....

I woke up to a beautiful morning and ready for a good day of sewing...
I looked out my kitchen window and my Dahlias put on a wonderful display. They are such a lovely colour.
I walked past and just had to take a photo.
Dahlia's in my garden..

Sew my sewing begins.
I had to get stuck into this months patterns for my 2 SALs over at Deana's
Deana designs these patterns and they are fun to sew along with everyone else... One row a month makes it easy to keep up....
Here is this months pattern for the Americana quilt...
I have changed the size of the quilt intended. Mine will be a not as wide as I will be giving it to an Aussie Hero one day. I am just sewing along for the fun of it.
This row is supposed to represent the mountains for the Americana quilt. I have swap a few things around as well as the colours. I am doing an Australiana quilt the size of an Aussie Hero quilt. My row couldn't be mountain colours because I really have only used blue and red... I'm sure it will fit in ok when I put the quilt together.

And this is it for the Spring SAL.... Now I just have to put all the rows together
Last row for the Spring SAL...

I am happy that I made it before the end of the month. I didn't think I would get there with everything else that I had to finish.....

Yes they were done before the end of January but it took til now to do a post.....
