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...........Welcome.....Chookyblue........

This stitchalong....

.... has been so much fun......
(well they all are but I did enjoy making the other smaller projects in the books)

I chose not to piece the fabric for the front and used some sewing themed fabric ....... 


the stitching is done in Cottage Garden Thread "Cranberry" .... 


... some felted blanket wool for the needle patch....


... I was delighted to find a perfect button which matched the fabric and just did a little plaited rope to wind round the button ....


.... thanks Chookyblue and all the encouragers on the blog.....

Righto, Gotta Go..... I'm going to miss sewing with you all...... 'till next time!
