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.........

Ta Dah 'Tis Done!...


At last...Ta Dah!...'Tis the Season...a finished, quilted, bound and labeled quilt!!!...


Finished this morning at local quilting group...happy dancing!...hand quilted with a chocolate brown perle 8 thread, much happier than the aborted attempt at machine quilting, it really did not want to be machine quilted.  The 13th stitchery, the wreath, was awarded the supporting role of label. 

Now can I have my SKoW spot please Chooky...the book has been waiting since July and I have a couple of bundles of fabrics from the stash that are currently vying for the role of lead fabrics...
