Wow that sashing fabric is gorgeous - and will be perfect with the Long Time Ago in Bethlehem BOM!! Thankyou to both you & Anthea for the gorgeous prizes! ... I'm actually just about to start my F(D)NSI now, though it may be a little stop-and-start-y for a few hours until the little one heads to bed. Still not feeling wonderful :/

I wish I was working on Christmas in July but I think I will be starting to work on a quilt for my big sister who bought their first home! so excited about it though since I haven't worked on a quilt in 8 months - yikes!

I am sewing now! 4pm in northern Idaho. Who am I kidding? I am NOT going to resurrect my blog to post about my sewing (less time for sewing the way I blog). Anyway, working on building some blocks for a throw. It is a gift for a wedding on the 2nd of August. :S Seeeee, I don't have time to blog!

Cheers, Anita.

Wow - can't believe Christmas Through the Year is still going, lol, it has taken on a life of its own, I'm so glad! And thanks Wendy, I needed the reminder about the Bethlehem stitcheries, lol...
