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.........

Tis the Season Fabric Choices.........

I am not talking any more names for the SAL.
.....I am waiting for 2 girls to get back to me and then it is closed for now. 
Will work out then if I have any more spots once I get everyone joined up to the blog so you can do your own posts.............

Decisions decisions...............Sparkle all the Way by Robert Kaufman
Or

Suzitee has rubbed off on me and I have gone bright...............
Only 10 sleeps and we can start the new SAL Tis the Season so if you want to do a post and introduce yourself (old girls included) and show us what you have picked out for fabrics etc..............

Hmm.... biggest problem is that I really like both of them!! Maybe you'll have to do two quilts?!

Sparkle all the way is eye-catching. I'm deciding what fabrics I'm going to choose too.

I like the bright colours of Sparkle All The Way. The fabric decision is the hardest part... xx

Hi, Chookyblue! Wonderful idea to make it in red and green! I thought it too, with 12 days fabrics, but then... I changed idea. I go to post it!

Hahahahaha....gotta love brights :)
I've made a wallhanging out of the Riley Blakes and the colours are nothing short of scrumptuous...can't wait to see what you decide.
I have pondered long and hard, and have FINALLY made a decision on my fabrics...will do a post as soon as they arrive :)
Wooohooooo...it's almost time to start!

Thanks for managing the website, Chooky.
