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.........

Hello....my first post.

Hello Fellow Stitcher's my name is Maree and here is my Fabric for 'Tis the Season...Chookyblue has put the Whip out so thought best get this on asap...even though I was on a deadline yesterday for handing over of Sewing Caddies for the Qld Flood Appeal...I only got my Background Fabric for this project yesterday so now I can proceed to get the first block started...
As You can see I have not gone Traditional with this project...I Love this Fabric but really didn't have a reason for it up until now...I'm actually thinking of making a Table Runner with my Blocks instead of a Quilt/Wallhaning....We were at THE Shop Yesterday & have seen this Finished and hanging up....Really Lovely...
Till next time
cheers
maree
