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.........
Where are we now.....
4th SAL 2013...is numerous smaller projects from the previous 2 books Tis the Season and Some Kind of Wonderful plus some projects from Red Home by Natalie Bird approx 60 ladies stitching together.........

5th SAL 2015..........inspired to continue we are doing another quilt project.....Anni Downs newest quilt Natures Journey.....
6th SAL 2017.............A Holly Cottage Christmas by Michelle Ridgway.......once again the pattern is in an affordable book so it is easy for everyone to join in...........and you can raid your stash for the fabrics........or lash out and buy a the whole lot........this SAL will be run by Fiona aka Bubz Rugz and Raewyn........

April already....

Hello stitching friends, I'm happy to have my April blocks completed..... here is Santa and the Goose and Christmas Reindeer.




These blocks are just so much fun and I love that they are so quick to do.  I'll be back soon with my very late next Gardeners Journal block.

Happy stitching to all the TTS stitchers and to the like me, late Gardener's Journal girls!

Wow, you are fast! I love...love your French General fabrics...I think I wrote that last time...ah well I can write it again! Your stitching is so perfect too! Lovely. Your photograph is great too, I think I need to take a lesson on how to use my digital camera so I can take nice pics of my TTS too!
