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.........

I think it would be just "fab" to get together for a Sew-in - whip or not! Finsihed my jeans block today - hopefully a picture tomorrow.

That's a sure way to get them finished...invite them to the farm and stand over them until they work on it..ha, ha.

I would love that! Finally did a bit more of my machine quilting after spending 8 days in bed with a horrible flu. Hopefully tomorrow I will get some more done too though I am not loving the results so far. More practice required. Enjoy your stitching together. xx

Sounds lovely, Chooky! Can't get motivated to pin the quilt ready for quilting...not my favourite part. Well done Cardygirl!

Oh my gosh, I so would not have finished if I had known I could come to visit to finish! Lol! Nah, I would never have finished it at your house. I just watch others work in a group. Work, I could watch it forever!
