wow, stats, NO REPLY..............

Maybe I should have mentioned a few weeks ago you couldn't continue on to the next SAL but really I hadn't thought about it then...........I was thinking we would have had more TTS quilts finished by the deadline............but once i mentioned that you couldn't join the new SAL until the old ones were finished it sure put a bomb under you girls who hadn't finished...........there has been a flurry of activity.........
this blog is driven and powered by the excitement, encouragement and motivation you girls all give out.............
and just incase you didn't think anyone has been watching here are some stats from the last few weeks..........

If you are wanting to join the new SAL and you're not currently a member of the blog I have you on a waiting list. I will have a few free places (i'll sort this weekend) and others will pop up as people finish the GJ or TTS SAL's. I can add you as places become available............

A couple of people who want to join are NO REPLY.........I'm sorry but I can't reply if your comments come thru as no reply.
Everyone who has left a comment has been replied too so if you haven't then it is because I can't reply. This post may help you to change your settings...........others won't be able to reply to your comments either.
Keep up the great stitching............

Hi Chooky - I too have noticed the flurry of activity - and the number of "Page Views this week" is incredible! and certainly all the girls are putting in a huge effort. The quilts are looking great. What a load of work nthis must be for you. So a bug thankyou.

Elisa said...

Chooky, that is too funny! The stats tell it all. I'm 3/4 quilted and WILL have it quilted and bound by Saturday - save my spot :) Thank you for all your excellent work managing this group!

Amazing what a crack of the whip will do! How hilarious...thanks for a laugh today :) And keep it going girls...it's great to see such a flurry of activity!

Pepe said...

Gosh! Such a diabolic idea! The idea to give different rules for GJquilt and only-TTSquilt made it so believable...! So diabolic, Chooky!

Fiona said...

Go for it girls! Enjoying looking at your efforts.

Every now and then we all a bomb under us to make us get things finished. Just think .... it might have been another unfinished project otherwise.

You'll all have to make an extra big effort to try to keep to the outline for SKofW then it won't be a huge catch-up at the end.

Little Chicken again ....

Also, my visions of you all in response to Chooky's post ("Just to be clear ... lol ... posted 3.10) weren't too far off were they ...... Very funny to read in your posts that some of you are having PJ days, avoiding wasting the time of having a shower, leaving everything up to the hubbies to get it done and children fending for themselves. Very funny :)

Even funnier cause Chooky really isn't that scary ... she is all talk..... well some of the time....... well actually, I just make sure that I stay on her good side. I'm the favourite sister xoxo

Love the flurry of activity that resulted from the ultimatum. Would it be possible to put my name on the paper waiting list for a place in SKofW. I did do my GJ quilt, but did not join in TTS. Whatever happens, I'll be avidly following everyone's progress. Thanks Chookyblue.
