Still here....

Hi girls, just thought I would drop a line and let you know that I am still here, and stitching slowly along. I know I won't make my deadline of completion, but I am happy to say I have joined a little stitching group on a Monday night so am working away on my GJ quilt.
But Chooky has emailed me a few times and I did say that the new project was fantastic and however i will not be making the quilt i enjoyed the distraction and will make a few of the smaller items from the book...and here is one that was completed last month to share...I have switched up the stitcheries to ones that i loved.
 My favourite part of this project was the prairie points...gosh i forgot how much i love the simple effect of them.

....thanks for looking and happy stitching.

I love your wall hanging. I was thinking about doing some of the smaller items as well. You have inspired me.

I was given my hanger as a gift a couple of years back...I do admit it was perfect.

My family monthly sewing group all made one and my Mum found a similar hanger from a little quilting shop in Camden NSW

Your wall hanging is lovely Sonia...seeing other projects made up from the book makes them even more tempting!
