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...............

Getting closer...

Only one month to go...and how quickly has this year gone?

Here are my blocks for July...



I was feeling a little sad that it will soon be all over...BUT cheered myself up by ordering Some Kind of Wonderful, the beautiful new Stitch-a-Long project book! I have the perfect stack of fat quarters sitting on my desk, all ready to make a start when Chooky says the word... how exciting!


So...who's in for the next one?
