Needle Case - Tick

Life has been pretty hectic but I did manage to get my needle case finished a few weeks ago, but forgot to blog about it........ story of my life at the moment.

I did get my June pincushion finished,
 I posted it on my own blog but forgot to put it on here - sorry ladies!
I have really enjoyed being part of the SAL journey, I only had to use one pass (July hexie bag). I haven't been as active in my participation as I would have liked - study has been getting in the way. However if Chooky was to do it again next year - then please count me in!
No study for me next year.   
I would also like to show off my SKoW quilt that is finished. I love it!!!!

Thankyou to the talented Belinda Betts for her wonderful quilting
 - it really makes the quilt pop!
Thankyou to everyone for sharing this journey, I have really enjoyed seeing everyone's interpretations of the projects.
Take Care - Ann x
