Here's look'in at you Chookyblue!

I'm over the finish line with 2 days to spare........


So you can stop waving that whip at me Miss Chook.... I'm a good girl I am (sometimes).

Now that I've got the bit between my teeth I can't wait for the next block to arrive from Aus.  Would you believe I'm actually considering making TWO Natures Journeys.   Nope... I haven't lost my marbles I'm just blown away by all the lovely blocks and fabric choices you girls are making and I'm getting overexcited.    Will someone talk me down from the ledge here.......:o)

OK... happy danced around the garden punching the air three times already.    I figure  that's enough aerobic exercise for one day.... back to my needle and thread then.....

Hope you girls are all as happy as I am today....

See ya soon......
Hugs

I am enjoying watching your Nature's Journey from afar. I wished I lived closer so I could get the pattern.

Great blocks, so happy...so much inspiration flying about it's very tempting to contemplate making two (or even more) versions! Now breathe, just breathe, it's a soft landing into fabric but do you really want to jump (probably!) :)
