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

My Jeans and Holiday Blocks

Meet my "Blue Jeans"

I was unsure about them in the beginning but I love them now :o)

and my "Holiday" Block


Both together


and my Cup Cakes now have Juicy Cherries on top :o)


I now plan on putting it away for a few weeks whilst I concentrate on some more Christmas sewing.
Happy sewing,
Sharon
