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.........

February Sal done!

Hello, here is my bag

I added the scraps of fabric instead ric rac
        

I quilted the top and bottom


I added an inside pochet and of course I added my own label :-)

This is the first bag made by me and also my first stitchery. I am proud of the result. Thanks Chookyblue, you've got a great idea. I hope you like it and now we begin in March.:-)
Good luck to all and greetings from Italy, Emanuela
