Yes!!!! Just in time!

Oooooh .. I was so nervous but finally is here .. 

Yesterday i was returning from my weekly work travel .. stitching our January objective .. meantime i was consuming the last hours!! of January ....and I was wondering if my desired pattern has been arrived at home.

Checking the email I found a kindly mail from Chooky, asking  me if i get it .. and I answered her .. hope so!!


Here you can see a picture of the January stitching on the air .. 





After landing when I arrived at home, I go faster to postbox.. like a child looking for Santa's gift ...
and yes!!! it is some envelop from Australia!!!!!!!

but .. I decided to not open yet, so i wait till I be with my quilting friends in my Friday class .. 

and the all my pays was confirmed .. 


yes yes yes.. I get it and just in time!!!!!





Now starts the nice time to find the fabrics... I love this step .. i never stop to see and touch the fabric !

I have today to finish my stitchery but .. also today I have a masterclass to learn machinery quilting .. then maybe I will finish tomorrow.. late .. but finished at all!

Please receive my kindly regards and let's do it! let's go to stitching together!!!
