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.........

Block A finally finished!


I am way behind of all you ladies, but must admit I am so excited to be catching up. I finished Block A tonight at 11.30pm, Adelaide, South Australia time on the 30/6/10. I had wanted to be further ahead by now but life happens. I have used a Moda, Collections for a Cause-Legacy Jelly Roll and Charm Pack I had leftover from a prevoius project. Tonight it is very cold here... 3.5 degrees C, now I am going to sit and admire my block with a lovely cuppa before I retire to bed, very happy that I have finished my first block and looking forward to start tracing the next block tomorrow. Thanks for spurring me on ladies, your blocks all look wonderful.
Happy Stitching
Sweet Cinnamon-y Hugs to All.
