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.........

Hello from Canada

Hi Everyone,

I'm really excited to be a part of the stitch-a-long.  I'm afraid I couldn't wait until March and have already stitched the first block and working on the second :0)


Thanks for letting me be a part of the group.
Pat

QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

Ahh--you are such a "bad" girl--but I would love to start tooo--only thing is I have so many other things to work on --- that I have been good--though mine are all traced out--am also waiting on some new thread colors--
Have fun--
Hugs, Di

Stitching is so much fun, no wonder you were anxious to start! I'm a bit like Di, lots of things on at the moment which is keeping me on time!

Hi Pat, you rebel! It has been hard waiting but as I a one of those people that have trouble finishing things I have tried to stick to other projects until March. Consequently my fabric choices have changed so many times, I'm beyond confused. The stitchery looks great. xx

Yes, yes, I can see you're going to be the over achiever in this new SAL. Every group has to have at least one.
;-)
Don't worry I think the other ones will soon catch up.
Have fun with it.

I'm only getting my book and material next week. But I've got so much else to keep going with, can't complain. Once I get it, I know I'll want to start straight away, too.

Welcome Pat,
Mama Bear from the USA here.
I don't blame you...I'm sure these are going to be much quicker to work than our GJ..I've bought blues and reds and thought I'd do some of each..the reds for the other items in the book.
