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.....

I AM FINISHED--

Miss Gracie had to try it out first though!!
Yep--she says--
It is finished, Mom, and you can show it!!!!
Mom--usually hand quilts her quilts--
but she got a new sewing machine and this one has some 'fancy' stitches on it!!!
so she 'cheated' and used one the quilt--
She really liked the way it came out, too!!!
she may just have to do this more often on some quilts and wall hangings!!!!!

So--now Chookyblue--you can move Mom right on up--
and you all can send dark chocolate to Mom to replenish the 'huge' stash she had to 'inhale' in  order to this project!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for all the fun and for a beautiful finished quilt--
Happy stitching!!!!
Hugs, Di and Miss Gracie

I quite often use my decorative stitches for quilting - for my TTS I am going to use a mix of a star and a bell in the border. (I wasn't in the SAL then so its OK that I am way behind).
