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...............

Excited!

Ok. I know you have all seen this before, but look! I've got my book! I am so excited to be joining in with this SAL. I also have my background fabric and my thread, but they are at home in Melbourne. I am visiting my family in Adelaide at the moment. (I was so embarrassingly excited I brought the book with me so I can look at the patterns!) I have been doing a bit of stitching of late, you can check it out here, so this should be all fun. I am also excited to see some of my favourite bloggers' names on the "Tis the Season" sidebar. I'm planning to catch up with you all. See you on on your blog!

Oh. And thanks Chookyblue!
