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.........

A bit of Unpicking &.....A SOLUTION!

I absolutely loathe unpicking but once
I got stuck into this it didn't seen to take so long.....
My "Santas Boots" block now has new outer borders....

I am now much happier with the finished result.....
Now for some backing.....
Not much left to go now Chooky.....
Until next time, Happy Stitching

You would've regretted it if you hadn't done it. At least you weren't under stress with a Christmas deadline :) I like your top and love the fabric around mouse/boots!
