My friend, Valerie

Okay so this is unrelated to this stitch-a-long, but is still about stitchery.  Valerie, who is Canadian - check out www.pastimesonline.ca - runs block of the month clubs which are so amazing.  You have to take a look.  I have signed up for the Life is Beautiful quilt, which has piecing, applique and stitchery.  Valerie is using the Lilac Parade line of cottons, Jeval Dupioni silks and includes lots of other great stuff like pins, needles and floss.  Each block of the month club has its own private blog with tutorials. Please go and check it out.  You will not be disappointed!  There are quite a few to choose from.  Love ya Valerie!!!

Lori, I have also started work on this one...with a couple of friends...

Athough we are using Stitch in time here in Australia for our blocks.

It will be the first quilt my daughter will have tackles..so it will be a pleasure to stich alongside her.

We received our firts packing this month and I have completed one circle...not that i should have really...but its always nice to stitch with excitement something new.
