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........

help needed and 2 sleeps............

Hey girls.......need your help.........
one of our SAL buddies needs some support...........
just wondering if you can head over to Khrissy @ BaiSiNoLil blog and give her some serious whip cracking gentle encouragement...........her little fingers will be working overtime to get the last blocks of the Gardeners Journal done before the end of the year............
She wants to have the top together and she has about 48 hours to go..........
head over and see what she has left to do.............
Khrissy did start the GJ SAL with us but never got it finished..............
she also did the Tis the Season SAL...........
Come on team - help Khrissy get over the line...........
 
Also Miss Shez has finished her SKoW.............must be killing her though as she doesn't have very good internet where she is at the moment........but as soon as she can she is going to share a post here with us.......I can't wait.....
&&&&
Anyone else got something finished from any of the SAL's...........
not long now...........
Chookyblue...........
PS don't freak either if the SAL blog disappears just before I tell you all about the new SAL...............it will be back very soon..............
