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.........

I was in touch with you recently about finding the books in te UK .
I got in touch with a shop called Coast and country in Newcastle UK . They helped when I was looking for 'Tis the Season '
I now have my books the Red Home and SKofW .
I cannot join the group , I'd be too far behind but I sew every day and will show what I do .
Thankyou for your help
