Greetings from Victoria...



Greetings Fellow SAL-er’s from the centre of Victoria, Australia. My name is Annette and  I blog at Jindi's Cottage. Excited to be joining in again in 2015, thanks Chooky for organising again, along with your whip cracking side-kick Susan.

I played along in 2010 A Gardeners Journal (quilt top), 2011 ‘Tis the Season (actual whole finished quilt!) and  2012 Some Kind of Wonderful (still in progress - but getting closer every day to being a top).   I opted out in 2013.  I’ve been partial to Anni’s designs since Angel Story so the temptation of her new quilt was a little too much to resist.

I can’t guarantee life won’t get in the way, as it has a habit of doing, but let’s jump in anyway.  I’m looking forward to seeing everyone’s interpretation of the new quilt as we cheer each other on during the year.

Happy Stitching
Annette, Jindi’s Cottage

I, too, will have life get in the way of my sewing. But the deadlines of the SAL at least make you keep trying. We can help each other along.
