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.........

Introducing myself.... "Dawnie"

I have been enjoying reading about each of you and thought perhaps I should also do a post. I started in blog land in 2008 and have since  had the pleasure of meeting many of you, ... Who would have thought that possible not knowing any of you previously!!   It still continues to amaze me the we have only met  only blogging  and from sharing  the same "stitching" interests.  The funny thing is that when one does meet in real life it is like one has known each other a lifetime , so,,, having said all that what a wonderful thing it is that we can all share a new stitching journey together and get to know more of you out there.

 I am a big "Anni" fan so found this one hard to resist, even though a lot on my plate.  I first joined Sal for the first "gardeners journal" and it was lot of fun, the 2nd one "Tis" I got up to border stage so I must really get back to it, and ""skow" was left way behind, so have put it into my "retirement" catch up pile for one day!!  So...... I will be relying on all your posts to help keep me on my toes.
