My way of coping!


I took my Master 16 off to Vic Roads this morning for his Learners Test.
He passed!  I am so not ready for that so my way of coping .... retail therapy.
So on the way home I stopped in at one of my Local Quilt Shops and sitting on the counter was 
Annie's "Natures Journey" pattern.


They also had some fabrics kitted up for a starter pack.
Looks like I am ready to start.
I'm interested to see how you break this one up for us Chooky.

In the meantime I need to work out what to turn this into :o)


I'm looking forward to stitching this one with everyone and seeing everyone's fabric selections.

hugs, Sharon

I would prefer a list of the fabric requirements are NOT shared as a pic on the blog.
I will check with Anni if she will give me the list and I can email out to members of the blog.............
