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.........

Quick, Quick......

I am really pushing the clock to the limit to get this piccie up before I miss the deadline.........I love this bag, although a bit of a twist on the original as I added the applique off the quilt instead of the stitchery. I hope this still qualifies, if not Chooky I'll have to use the month as my pass........

French General fabrics.....first time I've had any in my stash and they are so fine and beautiful, with lovely soft prints.......very nice........now I better check out march's project and get started so I don't need to rush.
I am really enjoying seeing everyone's versions of this lovely bag......great work girls....
