Finally did it.

Hi, everyone. I have been threatening to do this for sometime now. I got some more encouragement from a fun group of ladies I met at 'Girls Day in the Country' at Nundle in March. So Bec, see I did it!

This is going to be a steep learning curve. I have to learn how to insert photos next, then links to other blogs and sites. I think I have a headache already!

This morning we had breakfast with my husband's family to celebrate his birthday. We also got to have more cuddles of our new great neice. I always enjoy getting together with them. The conversations are many and varied.

Tomorrow I have to decide on my fabric choices for a stitch-a-long I just joined. At Nundle, we met Anni Downs of Hatched and Patched. She showed us her wonderful quilts, bags, stitcheries, pin cushions and everything else. Three of the ladies challenged themselves to finish their quilts from Anni's book A Gardener's Journal and have them ready to show Anni at next year's GDITC. To encourage themselves along, a blog was started for show and tell. It's grown well beyond the original three and it's gone worldwide. I've committed myself now, so no dawdling.

Enough for my first post. I'm off to read how to do more than just type.

Welcome to our world, so pleased you can join us. Yep it's all a bit headachy to begin with and mistakes do get made but nothing the 'delete' button can't help. Great to see you have joined up for Stitch a long too.

Hello Kayly,
I hope you enjoy blogging as much as I have. I've made wonderful friends through this outlet.
I discovered the stitch-along through another blog just this weekend. So I'm playing catch up. I have the book ordered but it may take two weeks for it to arrive. I sure hope not. I ordered it through Patchwork Angel. I couldn't find it here in the States. I saved the fabric cutting guideline page from the blog and I am going to start cutting my fabric while I wait.
I am in the US at Huntsville, Alabama.
