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.........
Where are we now.....
4th SAL 2013...is numerous smaller projects from the previous 2 books Tis the Season and Some Kind of Wonderful plus some projects from Red Home by Natalie Bird approx 60 ladies stitching together.........

GJ Progress...

Done!  Well, all the blocks that is...the last four blocks constructed over the 24 hours since lunchtime yesterday...so Chooky, can I have my remaining letters please?...yay!...happy dancing!!!!



I have abandoned the whole little applique hearts arrangement, they do nothing for me and I'm happy enough with just a  large block of one of the more patterned fabrics in that space.

Now this afternoon I need to wash the border fabrics, which should dry quickly enough today to be ironed and dealt with tonight...hope to be back sooner rather than later with a completed top...

Happy Stitching

Way to go, Annette,
It will really go quickly now...are you going to quilt it yourself? I was ahead of the game for a while but I'm just finishing up mine. Are you aboard for the new SAL?
