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.........

250 posts..........

wow this is the 250th post..........can you believe that in a few short months
&&&
we currently have 60 stitchers
&&&
 we should be 1/3rd of the way thru the stitchery blocks by the end of June which is only a few days away......
.....our little counter should be saying 180/540 but it is only at 107/540 so we had better get a move on........
.....me included.....
.....I haven't even got the house traced but I nearly have a different block finished..........I have fallen off the "stitching wagon" but hope to be back into it this week.........
I know I will because every time I see another block finished i get so excited about seeing mine finished too........
&&&
If you haven't finished a block or posted on here for a bit just take a pic and show us where you up to...
...maybe the SAL members can help you get re-motived too.........
Happy Stitching

This has been a very satisfying project, so much so, that when Andrea bought up the finished quilt top today we have decided to start another one. I had six lovely fat quarters that I won in a giveaway from A good Yarn so with those and some more fabric we will begin again. ,

This is great Chooky and its so nice to be doing this quilt with so many people and they all have such enthusiasm.... fantastic. Maybe we should all put posts on the girls blogs that don't have a finished block marked next to their name.... just as a friendly jog a long.... a little nudge, what do you think?
