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.........

Whip Stitching!

Yep ... That's what I've been doing. No ... not the embroidery stitch of whip stitching ... stitching madly so Chookyblue doesn't chase me with her WHIP!! Tee! Hee! Hee! I know I'm a bit ... er ... quite a bit ... OK a LOT behind with my GJ quilt, but I'm still plugging along with it and this weekend ... to avoid that whip!! ... I locked myself in my sewing room. I'm happy to say that we have PROGRESS! :0)

Block B completed. Yay! :0) But wait ... there's MORE!!

Block I completed! YAHOO!! :0) The Annual Garden Show stitchery was the one that held me up for some reason ... it just kept getting put on hold, but now it's DONE! So ... this is where I'm up to ...

All my blocks ready to join together, just need to get some more uninterrupted time in the sewing room to get the top together ... and avoid Chooky's whip! :0) Can't wait til she lets me start My Favourite Things! Tee! Hee! Hee!

Thanks to you all for your encouragement throughout my rather drawn-out creation here! :0) Hope you're all having a fabulous start to your week! Til next time ...

BEAR HUGS!

CHEERS!
