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.........

here I go!

good morning girls :)

i am done with the stitchery, cant believe it... was an hard job :) since each stitchery is 6 and 1/2", each block is 14".
i changed most of the already sewed sashing because i was not satisfied with the french general and other colours mix, i prefer this:


















here in Milano we have almost 40 degrees, Celsius, I have  air conditioning but i am not in the mood to add batting, backing and quilt it. I hate summer in the city. let's see if august will be better...


Chooky?
when do we start with the wonderful Annie Downs quilt? :)

hugs to all

looking fantastic Kokina........do you have the borders already........how are you going to quilt it???

hope the weather cools down..........not fun to sew in the heat

you'll have to be patient with the next SAL as it is a little while yet before we start..........
