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.........

January Project complete.

Hi my name is Maria,  Life on the Block,  I live in a small Cray fishing / Tourist town 400 North of Perth, Western Australia on 5 Acres between the bush and the sea... 

 I  joined Chooky for SAL in 2013 and loved completing a project every month. I am really looking forward to stitching along for the SAL 2015 and working on Anni Downs new quilt “ Nature's Journey” .. Can’t wait for the book to be released and buy it…

In the meantime  Chooky  invited us to Stitch this cute Angel you can find  HERE to keep us busy in January..



012


I used some Cottage Garden Thread in variegated purples for my Angel and found some suitable fabric for the borders in my Christmas box……
