Today I got mail from Anni Downs…writer of the fantastic book
“An Angels Story”.

It is from this book we are making the angels we are so in love with…and are determined to finish!!

She loved the idea…and wrote this:

“This sounds like a BRILLIANT idea!!, and I absolutely LOVE the badge – I WANT ONE!!!”

So I guess …now we have her blessings and this will go like a dance to get this quilt together!!
Hope there are more of you that want to join… don´t be scared of the deadlines…just join and see where it leads…of course the prize will be drawn from the ones who are finished 1st of January 2009..but the biggest prize must be to have this gorgeous quilt finished!! Don´t you agree!! So join and we all support each other!!
If you forgot the the simple rules…here they come again…
Top finished by 30th September..and quilt finished (quilted and binded) 1st of January 2009!!

First of all…check out Lynette Andersons blog….she´s having a wonderful giveaway…this one you don´t want to miss!!
Angel Story
Ohh these angels…they have been a project going on way tooo long now…
I started mine at least 2 years ago…and have been working on them every summer… so has Marica…and we have been setting dates for finishing them…extended the deadline…and so on.. you get the point…and guess what they are STILL NOT FINISHED!!!
So when we had our last meeting…we decided to work on them… You know how it is to start a project you have put aside…you don´t remember how you had been thinking…and it get kind of tricky to start again…
And this time we set another deadline…knowing in my mind…that we could extend it this time too… 😉
Then May Britt made a comment on my blog and said that they were her bad conscience…so I challenged her to join us… and she did!!! And then Hanne, Anne Ida , Bjørg ( no blog) and Cathi wanted to join in!!
This is fantastic…more pressure ( I need that) ..so maybe this time I can´t put them away…and thats good…cause I really want them finished!!
I talked to Marica tonight and she will make a little “sign” for this Angelclub…
So if there are more people working on this one or will start it…join us…
This is the deal:
Top finished by 30th September…and quilt finished (quilted and binded) 1st of January 2009!!

So I will add this to my sidebar soon with links to all who joins…and I´d be happy if you mail me at kviltstina@gmail.com with your progress (and if you have no blog…we solve that someway)…so we all can help and support each other to finish this lovely quilt by the end of the year!! Haven´t thought of any prize …but it could be possible there will be a drawing for the completed quilts… if I´m not to exhausted…. 😉
Good luck to all!!
…So I have started today…sat outside in the lovely weather …and stitched one block finished…
…started another…
…and this is how far I have come…have all blocks finished…but not completed the stitchery on some… and I also have started to cut out the squares… so I´m a bit on the way!!

And for making this Challenge a challenge..I joined another Challenge…check out Peg´s blog!!
Finish Five by end of July!!
So wish me luck …I can need that… 😉
I´m out of my mind…!!!
