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.........
Where are we now.....
4th SAL 2013...is numerous smaller projects from the previous 2 books Tis the Season and Some Kind of Wonderful plus some projects from Red Home by Natalie Bird approx 60 ladies stitching together.........

Just made it


Block A, done and dusted, and on time I might add,
amazing for me whose always running behind.
It must be the great motivation and encouragement  that I get from 
you girls.

So thanks so much, and I love looking at all your blocks and stitching.

Hugs
Mandy

Oooh, I love that dark red, both with flowers and without. Red is my favorite color. Your block looks so sunny and Springish just like the quilt stitcheries. Love the look of the planting the flowers block. Isn't it neat how all of ours are different.
