Tis the Season SAL update.............

i'm sorry girls I am sure you have given up on me but the last few months are taking there toll...............
June was a write off but I did get my June blocks finished in July and also my July ones made it in by a skim in July..............I think .....maybe it was July at the end of the time zones.........
So here they all are and August is as good as done to in the bottom middle...........just need to sew the running stitching around the edge..........and my label (wreath block) is traced and ready to start the stitching...............
As I only have fat 1/4s of this fabric I will put a white border around the blocks and then use the left overs for a scrappy binding............what do you think???
&&&
How is everyone esle going:???? making progress??? 
We all need to finish this by the end of September..........
Keep up the great stitching.............

Hi - I'm Chooky's little sister.

Just thought that I'd post on her above message 'cause I know that you will all be checking in on it and many of you posting.

CHOOKY IS CELEBRATING A SPECIAL BIRTHDAY ON MONDAY. She will be too modest to tell you ...... so make sure you send her a special birthday wish.

I know how much she loves her blogs and the contact that she has with all of you.

And Chooky - DO NOT DELETE this message :)

Happy Birthday to my wonderful big sister! You deserve a wonderful day. You have always been there for me, you are a great support and give me direction at times when I need it. You are my friend and I love you lots xoxoxo
