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.........
2014 we had the year off..............
5th SAL 2015..........inspired to continue we are doing another quilt project.....Anni Downs newest quilt Natures Journey.....
6th SAL 2017.............A Holly Cottage Christmas by Michelle Ridgway.......once again the pattern is in an affordable book so it is easy for everyone to join in...........and you can raid your stash for the fabrics........or lash out and buy a the whole lot........this SAL will be run by Fiona aka Bubz Rugz and Raewyn........

Lynda's Stitcheries


I mentioned my friend Lynda from Balranald in NSW is watching from the side lines,
she is definitely going to start a blog, with a little help over the phone.


These are her stitchery's, Lynda emailed me photos's of them and taaa daa!!
I love your colours Lynda, great work.

Lynda was thrilled to see all your comments and especially
 one from Jindi's cottage that said, "go on get a blog you know you want to........she said she felt herself answering her......  and that was really lovely. 
 
So for the time being until Lynda and I work out her blog, I am going to be her medium, (I feel like I'm in the movie Ghosts ) tee hee!! 
 
Happy Stitching!!
Lynda

Welcome Lynda. Once you start blogging, you'll wonder why you resisted for so long. Your pieces are lovely.

I started a blog which really doesn't have anything in it yet, but eventually. I just started it to join the stitch-a-long. It's easy so welcome Lynda!

Dear Fiona, Chookyblue, Lisa, Mama Bear and Lolastitchida, thankyou so much for your warm welcomes to blogland. I'm still fathoming it all out. Emailed Chookyblue today and I am part of the stitchalong blog. Now all I have to do is work out how to put my first block on the site. Speak to you all again. Thanks Lynda.
