Some Kind of Wonderful

Slow and steady is this little snail, I am all but finished the last of my stitchery in my Gardeners Journal Quilt, and I hope to complete the last few panels tomorrow at the sewing machine - well laid plans let's hope. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

But I know that I haven't posted for so long, but just realised that I didn't share my project that was inspired by the post by Chookyblue.

I feel in love with the projects on the cover, and just had to have this book. The girls were wonderful and shipped it to me ASAP, so that I could complete a project for my Mum from this book.


 The projects are wonderful and this little coin purse was completed in a couple of hours - loved it thanks girls for continuing to inspire me to stitch and quilt!!!

It looks like a lovely book (another one to add to my ever increasing list .. lol), and the coin purse is so sweet :-)
