All ready to go.... bring it on


Well I'm all ready to go for this years SAL, finished GJ which is a great feeling and I can
start TIS and hopefully keep on track with the plan. I bought my kit at "Homespun and Beautiful" so if you are having trouble getting the book or kit then I am sure Tereasa will
 be able to help you as she still has a few left so pop on over to the link and have a look.
Doing these projects with all of you in blogland is really great and I'm looking forward to watching all the quilts come together.

Thanks Chooky for all your work.
