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.........
2014 we had the year off..............
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........

Chookyblue's GJ.........

Sorry for such a delay........but finally the camera and quilt were in the one spot..............
Bec did a gorgeous job on the quilting I am very very happy with the quilting............
Thankyou 
I would not have got this finished without you all.
Since finishing mine and feeling such satisfaction now I am on a mission to get the other girls finished............Some are still working away from last year and a couple of others have started.....
COME on GJ girls...............
some of you have made some progress lately some have not - so lets get stitching...........
Keep Stitching............

Awesome...it looks fantastic...and a big Thank You to you...without you taking the initiative to start this blog and invite the rest of us to play along I know my GJ would still be a book on the shelf for "one day" and not a top right now...Hugs...

I am sure the girls that haven't yet finished are given some motivation by seeing your lovely quilt...I know seeing a finished GJ quilt spurred me on!
You must be so pleased, its gorgeous!
