update done...........

Hi Stitchers.........after a busy weekend of sheep work I managed to have some time on the lounge with the laptop this afternoon..........(truth is my body is stuffed from the sheep work....lol)............
 I hope I have updated everything correctly...........I had to catch up on about the last 20 posts.......left lots of comments.......it is wonderful to see you all posting.............in all this we had another 9 blocks completed.........fantastic effort........esp Sylvia as she has finished 2 in this time.........
&&&&&
The quilt below is Kerri's 2nd round of A Gardener's Journal I helped her get the top together earlier in the year and this is the quilt to blame for me committing to Peg and Dale to make my own and hence starting the blog..........
anyway after visiting on the weekend she is starting her 3rd quilt......yep she loves it that much.........she has to catch up on last months but i am sure she will have that done in no time............she is a wizz on the stitching........

(photo borrowed from Kerri)
a couple more girls have join the group...........Laura and Dot I have added to the sidebar and I am just waiting on replies from 2 other ladies..........
&&&
oh and Lori who started a blog when she joined the stitch-a-long has finally got a post up so head over and welcome her........
&&&&
also it is great everyone is leaving lots of positive comments on each others posts......
....not sure if you all aware but some posts get comments up to a week later so if you have done a post make sure you check back and see what comments others have left for you............
Catch you later..............

I'm so excited to join you all here. I've been reading all your posts almost since you started and it became absolutely impossible to resist starting this project, even though I have umpteen other projects on the go. You're all doing such beautiful work.

I will have to be patient just a little longer as I have a week or two to wait for my book to arrive. In the mean time, I will have to try and settle on fabric to go into this quilt. Decisions, decisions! :o)

Thanks for the updates, Chookyblue. This quilt of Kerri's is beautiful. I can see why she is on #3. The stitching is fun. I am working on the last one for A and hope to get my block together soon.
