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.........

I've done it!! Well almost.................

Hello All, this is my first post of any completed block but I've gone ahead and done them all! I started putting the blocks together, mucked up one and un-picked it. Then mucked up another (but left that one).


I have miraculously had time to get out my rotary cutter, cut this gorgeous fabric and use my new sewing machine with only one child out of three at home for the last two days. It's amazing how much I eventually achieved. (well for me anyway - but I have missed my girls!).


I really had no idea what the outcome would be with the fabric but had confidence in the colour combination as did the fabric designer (obviously!). Now to border and bind.

Happy Stitching, everyone. I love seeing your progress!!
Thanks
Susie
