Top together..........

The spammers have been busy the last few weeks.................not quite sure how many different lotteries I have won in the US and UK.....BUT trust me I have won billions by now..................most have gone to my spam folder................thank goodness.............then yesterday I got an email from some idiot who wanted to buy my blog............as if it would be for sale.................some fanbox spam emails too ................bugger off I have more important things to do..............
&&&&
Off to the quilters...............the double narrow border won.............just softened it a little before it went to the lighter green wide border.............

thanks heaps everyone for your thoughts..............
So once this comes back I will have the binding ready to go.............I can't wait to get it back and it hasn't quite left my hot little hands...........
&&& 
I got another quilt back late last week so want to get the binding done on it............no rush though it has been in the making for about 3-4 years............blogs are bad reminders of exact times you were working on something..............bummer............LOL............
&&&&
Excitement is building for the next Stitch-a-long................numbers are restricted and it is just about full.................everyone is busting to get into Tis the Season (TTS) by Natalie Bird.............I think I have picked out my fabrics..........will share it in a few weeks on the SAL blog..............I just want to get the Gardener's Journal finished first.............
Catch you later..............

  26. Hey Donna! Your GJ quilt looks FABULOUS! :0) Well done! Mine is on the backburner a bit at the moment while I meet a magazine commission deadline, but it's not forgotten, I promise! :0) Finally cooler here after some rain, so tonight will be TV and sewing night! Hope your week is off to a great start - Bear Hugs! KRIS

  31. Looks great with the two borders.
    Now as for the other quilt. You've waited this long for it so I think it can probably wait to be finished off later.
    I've got two stitcheries traced for the TTS and ready to go when I finish my Club Quilt Swap Wall Hanging.

  32. Oh, it is lovely, you are a clever chook! When I look at the SAL sidebar now, I'm almost in the minority not being finished yet, but I am working on it, believe me! I agree - having a blog can be scary, when you see how many things you've started and not finished (Type 2 is a great excuse though. lol)
