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.........

Happy new year, happy new SAL

Hello,

this is my first time or maybe the second one, because the first was a test when my blog was created, writing in a blog...

I'm so excited .. then please apologize me if I make mistakes or just its difficult to understand me, English is not my mother language, but I will try to communicate with you ... 

oh my God, I forgot to introduce myself ..

My name is Ester, I am mother of 2 daughters (5 and 9 years old), wife of my husband (he doesn't understand so well why I'm mad about a needles, pins, fabrics and threads)  and daughter of my mother that she never imagine I can sew .... 

I live close to Barcelona, in Spain, nice weather and an awesome place for the life! Don't hesitate to contact me if you want to visit my country.

Just 3 years sewing or "Patchworking" .. since I started with this crazy handmade hobby, I tried to challenging myself, and I can stop dreaming what I can do if I have more time ... 

I follow you since end of 2012 .. Stitched a long ... you ... during 2013 but due to I didn't have a blog.. I couldn't participate actively .. now I've created a blog ( right now I'm trying to discover how to manage it)  and now, finally I really can stitch a long ...

Thanks Chookyblue 

Ester

Welcome to the blogging world Esther and to the SAL - you will soon get to know your way around your blog - I think we are all learning as we go along!

Welcome Ester. - my daughter's name is Esther. As was my grand mothers. Not a very usual name in Australia so it's lovely to hear it from other parts of,the world. Welcome along. I, too, have a family that doesn't quite understand the connection I have with pins, needles and fabrics. That's ok. Happy to keep my little secret. This is going to be a fun SAL.
