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.........

May Blocks, GJ

Please mark off two more blocks for me Chookyblue - my May blocks are actually done early this time!!!!!! Good thing as I have tons of other stitching I am doing too.




Oh and as requested, here are a couple of close-ups of my GJ quilt showing the quilting and a full size picture too!




My friend, Holly, who suffered the loss of her Mom and Dad this year, is just starting her GJ - we are all here to support you! Happy Stitching!
