Reluctantly Withdrawing from SAL

I have agonized about this for a few days and have finally decided that I am withdrawing from SAL 2015. I have found 3 quilt kids that have not been started and I have a couple of WIP's that need my attention. Back to work next week so February will be a blur. I will be watching closely to see all of your lovely quilts but am afraid I don't want to bite off more than I can chew at the moment.
Any of you that know me personally know that if I decide to do something I like to do it well.
Full time work, a pickles business on the side and the many projects I have going and planned at home will demand a lot of time.
I am sure you are all familiar with this routine.
I will finish off the January project that I have started.
Have fun girls, I will be watching from the sidelines.
Sorry to Chooky and Susan also.
 
Hugs Kate

Will miss you on SAL 2015 but understand where you're coming from - Look forward to visiting you at "Show and Tell" and seeing what you are up to!

I'm sorry you won't be playing along this time, but best to make the decision now before adding another UFO to the mix. I'll enjoy seeing you make progress on your other projects and getting that design wall in use.

It is a big commitment and hard to keep up even if you don't have a full time job. I don't blame you and know you will be relieved you made this decision.
