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.........
Where are we now.....
4th SAL 2013...is numerous smaller projects from the previous 2 books Tis the Season and Some Kind of Wonderful plus some projects from Red Home by Natalie Bird approx 60 ladies stitching together.........
2014 we had the year off..............
5th SAL 2015..........inspired to continue we are doing another quilt project.....Anni Downs newest quilt Natures Journey.....
6th SAL 2017.............A Holly Cottage Christmas by Michelle Ridgway.......once again the pattern is in an affordable book so it is easy for everyone to join in...........and you can raid your stash for the fabrics........or lash out and buy a the whole lot........this SAL will be run by Fiona aka Bubz Rugz and Raewyn........

caught up......

after hours and hours I have the blog up to date...............I went away late June/early July and signed off life in the holidays and your posts got away from me............finally it is up to date after nearly 60 posts, saved all the pics for albums for the last 3 months...............all sorted now though...........a couple of girls have bowed out and a few of you have 3 P's so i'll give you til next weekend to change that or I will take a couple more off.........Kate is an exception to this as her Mum is seriously ill...........
Now onto the challenge for August of stitchery, patchwork, zipper.......aaarrrhhhhh.....
I'm sure you will be fine and we will all get it done supporting each other............
have a great month girls..........
off to finish some projects hopefully.........

Having already previously made this bag I can say it really isn't as tricky as it sounds!!! The zipper is put into that panel that runs over the ends & top BEFORE the side panels are added to it. A little bit of fiddle, but certainly not as much as I expected :) Looking forward to seeing everyone's versions!!!

Thanks so much Chooky, it's much appreciated all your hardwork. I know all too well, that sometimes you need to sign out of life to make it all seem good - welcome back <3
