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.........

FINISHED!

I finally finished Tis The Season (Quilt #1) this morning. I have had the quilting finished on it for a few days but I just needed time to sew the binding on (so I could then spend some time on the couch!!) so I could hand sew it down. I stole some extra time this morning while my babe was sleeping and finished sewing down the hanging pocket.
I found that I hadn't quite finished stitching the star on this block! Oops! I'll have to sink the knots and finish stitching it!!
Thanks heaps to Chookyblue for running the Stitch-A-Long. I haven't finished yet though! I have 12 blocks all stitched and bordered for quilt #2. I'll have to get into that one and have it finished for myself for Christmas!! If I get that one finished on time I may just have to start something new (or finish something old!)!
Thanks girls for the motivation!
