1st SAL.....Peg, Dale and I committed to stitching Anni Downs - A Gardener's Journal in March.

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.........

Just in Time...



Today was a big day in the sewing room finishing off my bag


I do feel a tad guilty for doing the blanket stitch on the machine, but it is so much quicker
 

I only finished after tea tonight, and so pleased I finished with a day to spare!
Its visits to this blog and seeing all the competed bags that kept me going...and of course the threat of that whip!lol!
Bye For Now
