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.........

Wooohooo all finished

Wow I can't beleive it..... all finished including the label and also hanging on the wall in my dining room .... think I might need to rest now ..... lol nah just kidding. Thanks very much Chooky for this great blog and the work you have put into it also to  all the girls who help with the motivation and inspiration.... but...... we still have to keep Chooky on target as it would be a shame for her not to have hers finished in time for the retreat after all this was started for her to reach her goal, we all just became hangers on... so to speak..... so come on girls we now have to help Chooky get it done.






Go Chooky.... go Chooky.....
