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.........

Hello Block A!

It is with much excitement that I show you...


...the last of my catch-up blocks! This is Block A, which according to the "plan of attack" was to be completed in May (which is before I joined this happy little group LOL)

My stash of pre-cut squares for this quilt is growing smaller and smaller...which means that the end is getting closer and closer!
I've had some computer issues in the last week...no internet at all...so I'm looking forward to seeing where you're all up to!
Happy stitching
TTFN

Yes,isn`t great to see the pre-cut pieces growing smaller.I have just picked out the bits for block B, but November might come before I finish the sewing.
Happy Stitching to you,Susan:-)

I'm sure I said before how I luv you fabric colors! I wanted to know what floss colors you used... was it the original colors called for in the pattern?

Beautiful !!!
I have been searching where to purchase "A Gardner's Journal" pattern. Can't find it anywhere - would you share where this wonderful pattern is sold ?
Thank You

Thanks so much for your lovely comments :)
Becky, I've just matched my thread colours to the fabrics, which are mostly Nicey Jane by Heather Bailey. All threads are by DMC.
Claudia, do you live in Australia, or elsewhere? I know that Anni Down's shop has it ...www.homepatch.com.au ... not sure if that helps?

Sorry...couldn't figure out the email thing! Yes, I have the book but haven't bought the floss yet!
