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.........

My first Block of the Month has arrived from Anni !!!

Exciting post in the mail yesterday when the postman delivered the first month's Block of the Month which I ordered from Anni Downs at Hatched and Patched .....


All beautifully packaged and cut up .... taking all the guesswork out of the decision making for me on fabrics to use etc.  I just have another project to finish off before I can start, but I'm dying to put needle and thread into this fabric already !!    It's great to see lots have made a start already ... they are all looking beautiful !!
