1st SAL.....Peg, Dale and I committed to stitching Anni Downs - A Gardener's Journal in March.

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.........

March - done

I've got a feeling that we are all just going to fly through these little stitcheries and before long our dear Chookyblue will be getting inundated with the "what's next?" question.
Anyway here are my three for this month, apart from the red stitching there is nothing but cream and green, oh and a little bling too.
Now I'm ready, are you?

Great job...this colour combination looks awesome! I'm cheating a bit...I started this SAL, but I'm also making another Hatched and Patched quilt at the same time with a couple of friends :) I like to keep my fingers busy!

Very pretty! I'm assuming your next blocks will have the cream for the inner and the green for the outer borders.
