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.........

No more procrastination it's time to start. ........

An afternoons delight, stitching, can't put it off any longer 
and YouTube is a wonderful place for sourcing techniques.




So with a bit of trepidation I embarked on needleturn - I can honestly say the first few efforts are definitely wonky, totally not centered and points on hearts what points
 but I have made the decision to leave it warts 
and all hoping that by the end of this journey they will be better.

Not quite finished but 2 squares to go 😀


Keep stitching 
 Nay
