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.........

Ta.. Dah...


It's finished!
I'm pleased with how it turned out. I'm not going to look too closely at the quilting.
I put in my first hanging sleeve and picked the wall I'm going to hang it on. Hubbie googled the' best way to hang it' for me and is going to help with the board and nails.
I would like to thank Chookyblue, Dale and Peg for pledging to finish their Gardener's Journal quilts and Chookyblue for starting and maintaining the blog.
I have been amazed at the participation of ladies from all over the world. I have enjoyed, emmensely, reading of your progress.
So, Chookyblue, can I please have a 'finished' against my name?
Lastly, I am not doing the next SAL, so I would like to wish everyone happy stitching. I can see already that all the 'Tis the Season wall hangings are going to be so different and wonderful.
I'll be an avid reader of your progress.
