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

Tis the Season progress report

Five stitcheries completed in a week....not bad progress really!!
They are so cute and very addictive!
I havent pieced any borders as yet as I cant decide whether to use several colours, which goes totally against my ordered and symmetrical brain,
OR use just 1dark and 1 light fabric, which is much more controlled and more my style!!

Chookyblue has set me a challenge to complete this quilt by the end of October....maybe the top will be finished....I think I can?

Happy stitching, Cathyxx

Of course you can...the stitching goes fast as does the strips so you should be putting it all together in a couple of weeks.
