Hello hello :)

She's a persuasive girl, that Chookyblue, isn't she? LOL

Hello hello...I'm Susan, I live in Perth Western Australia, and after several false starts (loss of book, lack of inspiration, indecision on fabric, non-arrival of ordered fabric blah blah blah) I am finally ready to join this happy and inspirational group! I have been stalking you all for a while, and am SO IMPRESSED by what you have achieved so far. I must admit, I'm also a little daunted about just how far I am behind you all, but here is what I'm planning to play with...


My fabrics are mostly Nicey Jane by Heather Bailey, and I can't wait to get started!

Thanks so much for allowing me to be a part of your group...hope to have some stitching to show you soon!

TTFN

Love, love, love your fabric! The thread is awesome....you are going to have a great time. The stitcheries go fast especially the smaller ones. Suggestion...trace the house block and work on it sporatically. It takes time and by doing smaller ones at the same time you will feel success. Lee

Satu said...

Nice to 'see' you here, Suzitee! And I'm really anxious to see your first block. Nicey Jane fabrics are so fresh and I'm sure your quilt will look delicious.
