Last Past the Post!

Hi Donna and Girlfriends,
It is so nice to be here, though even a little late. I'm a bit silly signing on for this Stitch-A-Long as I lead such a busy life with my family, but I love friendship, companionship and of course I am passionate about quilting! Chookyblue and I have been friends for nearly 8 years I guess, and I am so interested in her little comings and goings!
I have returned from a holiday in Thailand - nice country and people and I do have strong connections there - one grandaughter who has just turned 17 and a little bub due on 24 June. That's just one little side of my busy life!

I enjoyed making this little thread catcher and am so relieved it is done - it will be a real challenge to me to keep up with the programme, but it will happen - promise! So nice to see so many of these practical items in all their prettiness.

Thanks for the fun and will catch up soon - hugs - Lurline♥
