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.........

okay i have been excessively slack on blogging here but i have been stitching

hey everyone well i thought i should finally stop being sooooo slack and post my progress up here



My June blocks above and below












My July blocks ( above and below)





and My August block still in progress ( it's not going to make the deadline)






in My defense the June and July blocks were stitched before the end of their respective months i have just been super slack at putting borders on them and photographing themso here i am all caught up, well almost, i have really enjoyed making these little blocks, some of them i wasn't really sure i liked when i started but now i love each and everyone......


hope everyone else is enjoying this stitch - a - long
