just a tease..........

Well you know I am flood bound..........Tuesday looks like my only chance this week of getting town unless it rains tomorrow. So to keep myself sane I have been sewing..............
I finished this stitchery from Natalies new "Tis the Season" book up into a little Christmas hanging.
Promise I won't start on my quilt til we all start next year together.
&&&&
And an update as to my progress on the Gardener's Journal.......think I have 4 or 5 bigger stitcheries left to do and not that much left on 3 others. They are all over the place though. 
It will all come together in the end though. Keep pushing me along girls.


Catch you later..............

Hi after a little nudge the second quilt is coming along , Andrea handed it back and yesterday in all the muggy weather I put the first border on. Lovely to read all the posts this morning. The mojo is starting to get going again.
