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.........

September (almost) Done

Due to lack of thread...grrrrr.....I can't complete my needle case but here it is in its current state...






I have ordered some silk of the colour I wanted, so hopefully, it will be close enough to the original and I can finish the heart and applique it on.

I didnt piece the front section - but I did do the middle of the back - forgot to photograph that - I'll do that when I get the heart done.


So, Miss Chookyblue, I know you can't sign me off for September - but I had good intentions.

Thanks to everyone who has joined in the 2013 SAL - it has been a lot of fun - I have made things I would never have made, learnt a lot and made e-friends from all over.  And I had even more fun cracking the whip...

A huge thankyou to Chookyblue, I love the fact that you do this and hope you can keep us going for another year/project....though I am more than happy to wait til at least mid December....too many things happening now....

                                                         Chookyblue, for you:

  2. What a shame, you didn't need much thread to finish. Who does the whip cracking when the whip cracker needs it? Hugs......
