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.........

No way are you failing Chooky. I know for me I just need a good kick up the bum. I have finished all my stitcheries, just need to clear the sewing table of whats on it at the moment and get into putting them into blocks. SOON I PROMISE!! If not you can send me that kick-lol

I've been sidetracked by another project that has a deadline but I'll get back to this as soon as I've finished!

If it wasn't for your wonderful words of encouragement, I would probably have never made this quilt, or even noticed my book was missing LOL! Watching all the beautiful work getting posted on the blog so regularly is pushing me on with mine, and the lovely comments bring a smile to my face every time. Thanks for creating such a supportive little community...and keep up the great work girls!!!
