Don't drop dead with shock........

This is a project from Girls Day in the Country GDITC 2008...........yep you read that correct.........this may be a shock Rosie I know but I have finally finished my needle turn project.............once I got my head around it so to speak I had the needle turn done in no time................and really enjoyed it - total flip from on the day might I say............not sure why I avoided it for so long............

the pattern is Rosalie Quinlan Designs - Summer Garden cushion and it is in Rosie's book "Gift"

This is my first effort at needle turn and I am so happy with the end result..........it has gone off to a special friend..........it is the perfect colours for her...........

and I have a couple more birthday calls............Teodo is 60 today (31st July) and Levin is 40 tomorrow (Sat) and wants everyone to join her for soup lots of "0" birthdays hope you have great days girls..........

Also Kris and May Britt this is a wisp finish for the month............yippee..........it is quite late but this one will scrap in...........

Take Care til next time..............Chookyblue

PS I can't believe August will be here in less then 2 hours..............there is so much on..........every weekend is booked up(and there are 5)..........bring it on..........it is going to be so much FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyone going to Stitches????
