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

I did it!!!!

I didnt think I would get it done as I started like about 4 months in from when this Stitch-a-long started, but I have done the quilt top :) I love how it has turned out and of course the next step is getting it quilted.
I will get it professionally done as I want the flowers like Anni had them done and so this will have to wait until after Christmas as I need that money for going away at Christmas time.
Thank you so much Chooky and Susan for your time and effort in keeping us on track with this. I dont think I would have got it done without the encouragement from you. Hugsssssssss!!
 
So here is my Some Kind Of Wonderful quilt top :)
 
 
Now what am I going to do at night times?? Tee Hee.
 
Hugs to all.....
