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.........
2014 we had the year off..............
5th SAL 2015..........inspired to continue we are doing another quilt project.....Anni Downs newest quilt Natures Journey.....
6th SAL 2017.............A Holly Cottage Christmas by Michelle Ridgway.......once again the pattern is in an affordable book so it is easy for everyone to join in...........and you can raid your stash for the fabrics........or lash out and buy a the whole lot........this SAL will be run by Fiona aka Bubz Rugz and Raewyn........

SKOW Weekend

I am so far behind with SKOW......
I am thankfull that I do not live too close to Chooky because
 if she got that whip out I wouldn't be able
 to sit and stitch when she was finished with me....Sorry Chooky!
 My biggest problem was deciding on the applique method....
As you can see I have now decided
 and have managed to get some stitches in.....
Still slow going though so hopefully
I will get some done this weekend....
Jacky Mister has a Cricket Grand Final this morning
and Rep Basketball in Bathurst this afternoon and
 tomorrow morning so it is perfect time for me
 to get some sideline stitching done....
It is all in the organisation Girls!!!!!
Have a great weekend....
Until next time, Happy Stitching

Great job Kate, your stitches are so perfect, I thought it was machine quilted :)

Your stitching is so pretty, I thought it was machine done at first.
Like the background print, too.
