I am way behind of all you ladies, but must admit I am so excited to be catching up. I finished Block A tonight at 11.30pm, Adelaide, South Australia time on the 30/6/10. I had wanted to be further ahead by now but life happens. I have used a Moda, Collections for a Cause-Legacy Jelly Roll and Charm Pack I had leftover from a prevoius project. Tonight it is very cold here... 3.5 degrees C, now I am going to sit and admire my block with a lovely cuppa before I retire to bed, very happy that I have finished my first block and looking forward to start tracing the next block tomorrow. Thanks for spurring me on ladies, your blocks all look wonderful.
Sweet Cinnamon-y Hugs to All.

In a quick view by here I took a look at your works and I loved them. I'm late again because I´m a teacher and this is the last month of school.

Yippee for me I am finished with block C – that was cheesy, I did not realize I was speaking like Cat in the Hat until I typed it. I finished all those house stitches, it actually was very relaxing, which was a problem, each time I starting stitching I became sleepy. Off to the next block!!

Hello again everybody,
I`m back; not for full,but doing my best. My wrist and things are still not the best to work with.It`s bound to go slower than I first thought. But the cast/(plaster?) is just off,and I have had a busy weekend,sewing and organizing this and that.
During my absence I have,among things,enjoyed checking this blog and looking at all the lovely new blocks. OMG(!),I think all blocks are so great,and not to mention the whole quilt being finished. It is so clever of some of you that you really pick your own version of fabrics. I always have great difficulties choosing fabrics! Anyway I just love this specific border fabric,and now I am glad I at last decided to use it. Have had a long time to think,you know.
We`re having a good summer up here closer to the north pole,but still waiting for warmer days to come.A fortnights holiday down south of Norway coming up on July16. As it is bound to be suncream and sand around,must pick carefully what to bing for handcrafts. Gosh,may be not GJ! Well,still a long time till next year :-) We have plenty of time all of us,I think.
Glad to be with you again! Till next time: Happy Stitching to all :)

A couple of days to go yet so you never know I might get the May block put together as my world has started spinning a bit slower, but at least the Block A stitcheries are done...

Ahhhhh the peace and quiet. And whatever I want to watch on TV.
Hope everyone else is having a great weekend too.
It has been wonderful seeing all the new blocks.

Oh my goodness – Lee is so fast and her work is amazing. She has just sent me photos of yet another finished block. I stitched from 5pm yesterday until 7am this morning on the house block and I am still not finished, almost there. Isn’t Lee’s block beautiful! Great job Lee!!!

I have to say also how great it is to see everyone finishing off their blocks and blogging about them so constantly! It makes us want to keep up (even when it is sometimes hard to fit everything in to our busy days) and I'm really looking forward to seeing the end result for eveyone! It really is wonderful to see all the finished projects and everyone has used such different colours and schemes for their blocks, so they should all look very individual when sewn together! Pleased to see we made 100 for this weekend .... that should keep Miss Chooky very happy!!
I have finished Pulling the weeds and My gardener has grey Gum Boots, because without the book with instructions I used destruction's . As she didn't have any other flesh showing I thought she was allergic to mosquitoes. Margaret
After each finished block I'm more and more excited with this quilt...
And also with this group;)
With your support it's easy to keep the schedule.
In my previous post I asked your help with my borders. I'm happy with all your comments and I will do more blocks until I'll make the final desicion.
I enjoy reading your posts and seeing your progresses.

Here we are,my DD and me,at the plant-nursery and picking flowers for you,a whole a trolley full to thank you ever so much for posting nice words to me,both here and direct to my email. Very sweet of you:0) I definitely should have come around to you lot, but you probably understand why not!!! The flowers will be planted here in Oslo-Norway,for the time being ..... :-)
About one stitch(!!)a minute,approx. one hour a day,making slowly progress on the stitchery.The tools were done earlier,but the wreath now and a real match to my arm. I have not done any sewing on the machine,hopefully a bit in the coming weekend.
Have you noticed the plaster is violet! Great! They cut the old plaster off,checking the X-ray and decided a soft bandage was not good enough. New plaster will do the trick and in another fortnight I`ll be "right as rain":-)
That means soon I`ll catch up with Chookyblue`s plan,which I love to follow.
My DD is writing this for me as a one hand-system is very difficult.
