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.........

A start has been made...


Threads have been pulled from thread boxes...


                                ...there has been some cutting, and vlisofixing, and tracing...

                       ...and I decided, once and for all, what the fabric range would be.

I've been pondering all of this for some time. I had the bundle of Fig Tree Strawberry Fields, but really really wanted to use Delilah by Tanya Whelan...a much brighter and more "me" selection of fabrics.

As you can see, the Strawberry Fields won in the end....and now that I've started, there will be NO going back! LOL

I'm loving all of the activity going on here at the blog... so many lovely finishes, so much excitement for the new project, and a great atmosphere all round :) Such a lovely group to be a part of!
