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.........

Not decided..........

Not having entirely decided on what fabrics to use for my pieced blocks I have continued to work my way through the stitcheries. None of them are trimmed down to size yet and I’m sorry but I probably haven’t done them in order but the motivation is high and the threads are flying through the fabric (now that I have markings that haven’t disappeared while waiting to be stitched). so many of you are well and truly organised – I wish I was too.




Yours in stitching, Miche’le

And there are so much more lovely fabric around :-)Happy Quilting.

Wow! You are really moving on your stitcheries. I barely started the first one last night. I think I am going to use what I have in my stash but you never know with me. LOL!

Gorgeous stitching Miche'le, good idea to stitch until the right fabric hits you in the eye :o)!
You won't lose motivation that way either....
