I haven't forgotten

Life has been so busy of late, that I have not managed one stitch on Some Kind of Wonderful.  However, I have been reading about all the other brilliant starts - a little bit of envy.  Can't wait to do that first block.  Hoping to get underway very soon.

Cheers

Marg

I'm in exactly the same boat Marg! Glad there is someone else out there working along to my schedule!

Be warned tho, once you have done that first block it can become addictive :o)

I have only just finished my first block today and have started on my second block. I'm a bit of a slow coach at the moment.

LOL! Glad I'm not the only one! I have been having to work on assignments to finish off for uni, and should be finished in the next few weeks. I have just over a week between when they are due and when I go on Christmas holidays. I plan to prepare my Dec and Jan blocks during that time, along with a number of other stitcheries to work on over the 3.5 weeks I'll be away - evenings of hand sewing sounds like a wonderful holiday to me!!!

Hi Marg,
life hasn't been so kind to me either. I have only managed one block. Never mind I am sure we will get there in the end.
Love me :-)
