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...............

Woohoo!!! I'm IN!!!

Wow!  I was fully prepared to stitch/sew this quilt alongside the group, but ... lucky me, my invite arrived overnight!
I have had this book since it came out and was always (lol) intending on making the quilt, but was keen to do it with someone else for encouragement ... come in Chooky and the group ... great timing sweetie!!
I have decided to work with Moda's 'Grace' range and have a layer cake coming ... should arrive early next week if it's not here Friday, and then I can get onto some applique blocks.
I'm looking forward to seeing all the lovely versions of this quilt come together over the coming year ... and all the inspiration and encouragement to keep at it, lol!
Thanks for letting me join in with all the fun Chooky!!!
