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.........

Almost on time...

Peace on earth.... oh yeah!
Reindeers are so cute...
Tis the season for sure....
Sleigh full of pressies!
Bon Noel!
 
Phew...almost, almost on time, just missed by a few days...
I am ready to trace this months so I can be finished on time...LOL
 I changed a couple of designs to suit our family...
added reindeer footprints like the ones my neighbour draws on
the concrete near our house so the girls know he's been...LOL
and ommitted Santa cos Hubby does not like him...
he hates Christmas but I am slowly changing his thinking... he he
added a sleigh full of toys instead and just realised
my little noel birdies need eyes...must do that before I stitch another block...

Just a few days off schedule...and making changes to reflect your own traditions seems like a great idea.
