1st SAL.....Peg, Dale and I committed to stitching Anni Downs - A Gardener's Journal in March. I blogged about this on my blog thinking maybe one or 2 others may join us and lots of girls indicated an interest so I decided to start this blog where we can all encourage each other to meet the goals set along the way....March 2010 -March 2011...........
2nd SAL ......well so many of the girls wanted to continue on with another project and some new girls joined us and now approx 91 girls are stitching Natalie Bird's Tis the Season. March to Sept 2011...............
3rd SAL....many girls want to stick with the SAL so now we have moved onto Anni Downs Some Kind of Wonderful - My Favourite Things Quilt.......Oct 2011-Oct 2012.........

OMG........

Feeling so much better I have traced a few stitcheries...
....did you know I now have to answer to 40...yes 40...OMG 40 other crazy fabulous stitcher's if I don't get this quilt finished...........I am sure we will all be able to go well with so many of us keeping each other motivated...........most of you have done a post but if not jump in here and put one up..
...Alison where are you and who else have I missed........we still have people joining daily..........don't be shy.....
&&&
.......thinking I may send my fabrics off to Jytte as she already has all her pieces cut out for putting the quilt blocks together...........and Tereasa has traced all her blocks off so maybe she could trace a few more for me........
&&&
Dale has finished a block already - see beside her name I have added an "A" for the block section she has completed........if you have finished any sections show us here and let me know what block it is and I will mark beside your name too............that way we can see the progress we make thru the year..........

Catch you later............Chookyblue

40 people, wow! I bet Anni is thrilled!
Off to do some more stitching on my 'Watering the Garden' block before it's dinner time....

Chookyblue you are awesome, but not superwoman (sadly) so it's time to get some YOU time so that you can get your stitching done. Go on, turn off the computer for a day or so and catch up on yourself : )

I have a feeling that you have been busy with all other things than tracing, cutting and sewing on your own quilt, so don't worry; 'somebody' has told us just to make the two first stitcheries in April. I am so glad I joined this stitch-a-long. It is great fun.
