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.........

My "Sun Block"

I know what you are thinking.....
This doesn't look like a sun!!!
Well as much as I like lovely sun shiny days, I reallty don't
like sunshine on my face because it gives me freckles...ha ha....
But I do truly love "Christmas Pudding" especially
when it is made by my Nan or my Aunty....
So this was the inspiration for my block....
Wow only 3 blocks left to stitch....
Cat, Bird and Tree... Hmm what to do with those....
I hope you are all having a lovely long weekend...
Until next time, Happy Stitching
Kate

Kate - I love that idea - I agree about the sun - I certainly don't really enjoy sun directly on my face - even as a teenager I didn't like it - mmm what to do??
