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.........

Finally finished....


While I was in Tassie for a weeks holiday celebrating my 10th wedding anniversary I finished off stitching two and a bit of my first three blocks and this week in-between working on Uni assignments,being sick and doing copious amounts of washing I finished the third block and started putting the bordrs on all of them.
I used only what was in my stash and only had to buy the threads for this project so I'm quite please with myself :)
