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.........
Where are we now.....
4th SAL 2013...is numerous smaller projects from the previous 2 books Tis the Season and Some Kind of Wonderful plus some projects from Red Home by Natalie Bird approx 60 ladies stitching together.........
2014 we had the year off..............
5th SAL 2015..........inspired to continue we are doing another quilt project.....Anni Downs newest quilt Natures Journey.....

Chookyblue's Tis the Season...........

My label for the quilt.............added my name after this photo.........
I was waiting to take some pics outside but it is showery (nothing much to measure) and freezing...........
It was a late night last night but well worth it...............
Here it is .............
I only have a thin white border as I only had some scraps left and used those for the binding...........there are a few bits left but nothing for a border and I didn't want to buy more material............this is all from my stash............
I have only quilted in the ditch around the white stitchery block........if I can find some red buttons I will add them on the cross where the blocks meet later..........

Thanks for all your support...............I don't think I would have got it done with the week I have had without the extra emails I had received from your girls pushing me along........THANKS HEAPS......the motivation and support in the Stitch-a-long blog is wonderful..............
I will continue with SAL no 3 because you are so lovely, supportive and encouraging.....later today I will hopefully get a post together.......
Keep Stitching........

Yay!! all done and it looks great.
If you have room can I squeeze into the SKofW??? I have my book so even if there is no room for me I will still follow all the other posts. It has been fun watching from afar.

It looks great in green and the way you have finished it- and that's one of the good things about the Stitch-a-long- seeing all the different ways they have been made- I have really enjoyed and appreciated your encouragement and am looking forward to the next one...Thank you
