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.........

Waay behind !!!...

Here I am at last with something to show, I only have 5 stitcheries to go on my GJ.....

and all the pieces cut & ready to go to the machine & be sewn together.......


Being so far behind has meant that I will miss out on the 3rd SAL, myself to blame, no-one else..... but it will make me try and keep up with my next stitch along ..... maybe next year...
Congratulations to all of you who have finished your Gardeners Journal and the TTS as well ... I will be keeping up with what you are doing in the SKOW SAL.... happy stitching everyone !!

You can do it...it was sure tedious sewing all those tiny pieces together for the GJ. I don't envy you at all. We'll look for the finish soon and look forward to having you join us again soon.
