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.........

Waiting on the Postie...

Look what I ordered yesterday from "Lynette Anderson Designs".....
Pay Pal was playing up so I called directly and was greeted
on the phone by none other than Lynette herself.....
This is a Fat 8th bundle of all 25 of her new range of fabric
 "Scandinavian Christmas"
The pic doesn't do it justice, I will post a better one when it arrives...
It is not available in Australia yet but
 Lynette has a limited amount to sell....
I was very excited when I found it on her blog
because I want to use it to make "Tis The Season"...
And it was an added bonus that I got to have a lovely chat with Lynette.....
I will need to order some more for the borders
later when it is available in shops.....

After it arrives I will have to get busy....
Until next time. Happy Stitching

Kate
