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

Meeting deadlines.....


I have so enjoyed stitching along this quilt with all of you .... and to avoid some snaps of the whip from the special Chookyblue  it is best to keep up with the set deadlines!!!

.... I have loved stitching each of the blocks......


..... and making the backing from leftover fabrics ......


.... I just gotta have a picture of the quilt in a tree...



Thanks Chookyblue  for the inspiration to do this quilt and and everyone in the group for the motivation and encouragement to keep up with it..... I love it.....
