Anni and our quilt...........

After a visit to Hatched and Patched on the weekend I managed to get Anni in front of our quilt..........thought this would be special for all of you SAL girls.............especially the ones who never get to see Anni.........
I really want to make the quilt on the left too..............
a couple of close up's..............
another favorite block.............

Could you please make sure you sign off your name on each blog post..........also label your post with your name as per the sidebar name please................it's difficult for me to find things when i have to go back thru..............
&&&&&
For those who have to finish their TTS to move onto the SKoW SAL................hurry hurry.............time is just about up for me waiting..............
Also a few GJ girls have a bit of work to get done too...............
I still have plenty of girls waiting to join the SAL blog................I'm not going to kick you off if I see your working away and blogging to the group blog but if your not interested anymore and not blogging to the group let me know and someone else can have your spot................
the group blog only works when we are "ALL" part of the group.............
&&&&&
the first section of the SKoW is due to be finished end of December.........
I know this is a fair bit of time but I left it that way as there is lots of xmas sewing happening and christmas is a busy time so hopefully we will all be up to date at the end of December. 
Loving all the progress posts.............keep it up girls.............if you haven't posted for awhile go for it...........
Keep Stitching............

The blocks and Objects of Desire is my one of the favorite fabric. I did a quilt along with that fabric, but still haven't put the blocks together, I will share finished work soon.

Hi Chooky

I have FINISHED my Tis the Season, no pictures though until the weekend as the light is no good.
I have my new book and my first piece of fabric for the background.

Thanks for the photos, Chooky, I wish you'd taken close ups of the first section...sometimes when I'm checking in the book for a piece I'm working on, I wish it had bigger photos.
