Here we go again!

Under the leadership of the always motivating Chookyblue & the Stitchalong group, I completed my Gardeners Journal quilt...after it languishing in my basket for FAR toooo long! I was happy to have the support of like minded stitchers and it has been great to watch everyone's progress.  In March we will start Tis the Season by Natalie Bird. Great little festive stitcheries...a kind friend sent me the book & I am keen to get stitching! Just need to sort out thread colors now.
I may not do them all & I have plans for my setting, but I found some funky fabric with a Christmas theme... I think it will add a bit of zing to Christmas this year!
