Tis the Season SAL update.............

What a lovely surprise in the mail this week...............Tracy had a little giveaway on her blog and I received this in the mail this week.............perfect timing as I have managed to get a little stitching done while at the cows and some of them have been xmas ones so this will be used in one of those projects.............definitely a little bright moment in my week...............thanks so much Tracy..............
And I am sure some of you may think I have given up on this one but I am almost finished the stitching.............only the wreath block to go and it will be my label...............
A white border and a scrappy binding of the left overs as I only had fat 1/4's of this fabric...........
Check out the SAL blog as the girls are starting to get tops come together and they look fantastic..............
much more excitement there then here...........sorry girls............
Nothing else much to report except for another lovely parcel but i'll get to that soon..............
i'm barely home to sleep at the moment so nothing else to report..........please send your rain this way..........

Catch you later..............


  1. Oh How I wish we could send our rain your way
    So far this year we have been flooded in twice and flooded out once
    The ground is so wet The cows are making one big boghole
    Always nice to have a little win

  2. Hi - I'm Chooky's little sister.

    Just thought that I'd post on her above message 'cause I know that you will all be checking in on it and many of you posting.

    CHOOKY IS CELEBRATING A SPECIAL BIRTHDAY ON MONDAY. She will be too modest to tell you ...... so make sure you send her a special birthday wish.

    I know how much she loves her blogs and the contact that she has with all of you.

    And Chooky - DO NOT DELETE this message :)

    Happy Birthday to my wonderful big sister! You deserve a wonderful day. You have always been there for me, you are a great support and give me direction at times when I need it. You are my friend and I love you lots xoxoxo

  3. Glad the FQ arrived. If I am not back online, I wish you a happy day for Monday.

  4. Have a special Birthday on Monday, take some time for yourself.

  5. Surprises in the mail are the NICEST things :) Your TTS is looking great...sounds like I'm at the same stage as you. My borders are on (SNAP! a white inner border) and I'm hoping to get myself some batting today so I can quilt. Haven't stitched the wreath yet, but it will be my label too.
    If I don't get back here, have a FANTASTIC birthday on Monday!

  6. What wonderful mail...and what and wonderful and sweet post from your little sister. Probably won't be able to post on Monday so I am wishing you a very Happy Birthday early. Thanks for all the wonderful bloggy inspiration you have given me over the years!!

  17. I love the phrase "at the cows".

    Praying for rain for you. Not sure how else I could get any to you. Everyone else seems to have rain, which must make your predicament much harder to handle.

    Your quilt is looking great , i love it in the brights.

    Take care, Nicky
