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.........

ciao :)

i finally ended today 2 other blocks.

in april i have been really really busy.

i have also been at a patch show in Nantes, France of course.
wonderful!
i have met  Linda Jenkins and Becky Goldsmith, Jan Patek and Lynette Anderson.
It is really interesting how this little French town organised such a beautiful show, inviting these famous quilters.
i know you all feel sad for not being me in Nantes, i can understand.
:)





2 more blocks.

Chooky?
:)
i stitched 5 blocks up to now.
i feel i will finish the top within july.

i am having fun and i hope you all do :)
hugs

YOur blocks look great! But before I get all excited to go to France, I want to first go to Australia! That is my dream in life....to come to Australia and go on a major 'shop hop' and see the kangaroo's and hold a Koala bear! I think Chookyblue should have a SAL reunion! Would that not be wonderful? Then we could meet all these wonderful ladies that we blog and stitch with!
