Ohh I am soooo far behind

I still haven't gotten past month 1's blocks

but I am going to fix that issue next week

I will have 23.5hrs of sailing time to occupy myself with

on The Spirit of Tasmania as the kids and I are driving

up to Eden NSW to spend a week with dh.

So my TTS willbe comng on board with me to do while the

girlies sleep.

Hopefully after a week I will be home again with all the

stitcheries stitched just needing their borders.

thats the plan anyway.

Love seeing all the finished blocks

and even finished quilt tops

I am very jealous!
