Post update.... and progress!!!!!!

January project - I just want to say - wow there has been some lovely and creative things made from the gorgeous Anni Design in January's  (optional ) project.

(never give me the option heheh).....

I am one of the naughty ones that didnt do this one.  Actually  I was trying to get a few other things finished off so I could start afresh .     I so enjoyed looking at all these creations and thank goodness it was not a contest cause they would be far too hard to judge.  So many different combinations.

I thought I would do an update, as my pattern arrived the day before I went overseas,  so I was able to create a new stash ready to go.

so.... today was the day, start of the month, start of a project.
I decided to take time out and create all the templates so that when chooky's whip comes out it will be easier for me to get motivated.

so here we are - Dawnie now back on track:


Fabrics and pattern

 I put the templates on a key ring, so they are easy to find

Happy Stitching everyone,
and I cannot believe that some of you have already finishsed.
Wow.
Dawnie
