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.........

Trying to avoid the Whip!

In the hope to avoid Chooky's whip I would like to show you
 some progress on my SKOW Stitchalong quilt..... 
 I am up to the collumns at the moment.....
So I needed some 2 inch squares cut.....
 I then layed my first row on the kitchen bench and set
 about arranging the squares and fabric strips which was much
 more time consuming than I thought it would be.....
 After the collumn was made I  stitched it in between row 1 and 2.....
 This is my progress so far......
 It was tricky to photograph but I think you can get the idea....
Still a work in progress.......
I hope to get some more done soon.....
Until next time, Happy Stitching....
