1st SAL.....Peg, Dale and I committed to stitching Anni Downs - A Gardener's Journal in March. I blogged about this on my blog thinking maybe one or 2 others may join us and lots of girls indicated an interest so I decided to start this blog where we can all encourage each other to meet the goals set along the way....March 2010 -March 2011...........
2nd SAL ......well so many of the girls wanted to continue on with another project and some new girls joined us and now approx 91 girls are stitching Natalie Bird's Tis the Season. March to Sept 2011...............

Last Block

My last block is stitched and has been for a week


BUT

 it won't have its borders on or get stitched to the other
blocks until next month

the removalists arrive in 9 days
10 days til we are out of the house
11 days til I have to scrub our naked house til it sparkles
12 days til we sail out of Tasmania :(
17 days til we move into our new house

so my priorities at the moment to get the stuff we are storing
packed, trips to the tip, op shop and girlie things to do

I was hoping to have the top together and quilted before we go but
its not going to happen.

and if you'd like to see how chaotic my normal
clean, tidy and organised house now looks go
to my blog, and see what I am dealing with

I am a bit overwhelmed, very emotional,
and very over moving.....

Moving is a stressful business....be sure and take time for yourself to revitalize.

Wow, what a busy time Kate. I'm not surprised you won't have time for sewing. Good luck with the move :-)
