My progress so far........

Hi everyone, here I am at last to show you a couple of photos of my progress so far. Not sure if I will be able to have the top finished by the end of the month which is only 2 days away, but I will keep plugging away and hopefully it will be finished by next month.

I am really pleased to have finished my satin stitch stems on the centre block at last. The peeper is attached and the next border is almost there.
Love all the finished tops and completed quilts. Congratulations to those ladies. Everyone else is doing really well. Thank you Chooky and Susan for giving us the push we need to get the top over the finish line. See you next time............ Noela........


PS: Edited by Susan - it is hard to see in the picture - but Noela's satin stitch is beautiful. - Certainly worth the effort Noela.

I did a double take when I saw this as the colors are very similar to mine...I see you like red, also. Very pretty. Well Done.
