Still waiting for my pattern :(

Oh boy, I am sad today!  You are all moving right along....stitching away and I still have not recieved my pattern!  Bahumbug!  It must be lost in a snow drift!  Ah well, I will look at all the wonderful ideas on Chookyblue's SAL blog and get some more fabric ideas.  I will have some serious catching up to do when I do get my pattern...good thing we have our Spring Break holidays coming up...ah...1 week of sleeping in and stitching along!  Ah, just you all wait and see how quickly I will catch up.  LOL

Holly, Its still only the 8th of the month...I believe the stitcheries could be done in a day if one stuck to it..I prefer to work a little each day...I still haven't cut out my strips either...You'll catch up quickly.

don't worry Holly your book will be there very soon.........there is plenty of time for the rest of the month and the stitcheries are small and pretty quick...........

Don't be sad Holly. I haven't started stitching yet. I have my grandchildren visiting from interstate for the next week or so, so probably won't start stitching till after they go home! The stitcheries look really achievable and quick!

Holly - don't worry you will catch up quick. I only have my first stitchery half done. So glad you are doing this! can't wait to see what you choose.

Holly, you will catch up quickly, I only do 30 minutes a day and have finished 2 already, once your book arrives you will catch up quickly.

Like Mama Bear said, you'll catch up really quickly. I was a late starter in the stitch a long, and I've caught up already. They are so quick to do, and I'm loving every stitch of them :-)

I hope you get your book soon.
