Well I guess you could say I am the "lagging behind"  one in the group!
I have now finished the first 2 blocks!! I thought I had finished the first one before but then discovered I had left a row off the top and the side LOL
So while you are all starting your new SAL I will be continuing with this one!

Hey Anita! Hmmm ... I think you have plenty of company in the 'lagging behind' place ... I'm right there with you! :0) Have finished five blocks ... but then had a bit of a deadline/Christmas rush, so am just now back to stitching. The nice part is, no matter how slow or fast we go, this is such a fun quilt to make with lots of blogging buddies to cheer us on! :0) Enjoy your stitching!! Bear Hugs! KRIS
