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.........

Time to start

Hello my friends.
Time for me to start 
`Nature`s Journey`.
First I need to show you my finished cushion.
So happy with the end result.
I have put it away with my other Christmas decorations.


A little show of my colours for fabrics for `Nature`s Journey`.
A few more to be added but nearly ready to start.
I have been taking colours from two main pieces.


Off to cut out my templates and fabrics
ready to sit and stitch.
My youngest sister is with Mum this weekend,
so a bit of a break for me.
Happy stitching,
Clare.
