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 I'm on my way..

I've finally chosen my fabrics after much deliberation. I love the pinks and reds used by Natalie but have far too much xmas fabric going unused, not to mention far too many fabric purchases of late (hubby bringing home some from the USA on the weekend - can't wait!). I purchased some Kate spain, 12 days of xmas and really love this choice now.


I was a bit stumped as to my thread choice but think I will go with DMC816. I am hoping to get the stitcheries traced ready for sleep school next week! One whole week with no cleaning nor cooking! I'm hoping my son will do everything he is supposed to so I can stitch to my hearts content. Happy stitching everyone!
