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.........

Hi, girls!

Hi, girls! Here I am! I have a new blog and a new name: pepepatchwork (some problems with Picasa), a new invitation from Chooky for new projects and a new year! Yeah! I love changes...
I've not Red home book (I will, of course, it's so cute!), so for January project I choose Hatched and patched shoes bag...
I can't quilt because of my wounded finger (too quilting during Christmas holidays) and it hurt me so that I must do a stop for some days (I can't use thimbles on my thumb because I can't feel the needle coming...)...
So yesterday I begun my shoes-bag. I know, too similar the shoes fabrics and the background fabrics... but I love them sooooooo much! I think this marriage will be very sweet! :)
Goodbay, girls! I go to take an italian coffee with Nutella (nuts-chocolate), yuuuuum!!!!
Have a great year (I'm so happy to be with you for another year!!!!)
