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.........

WOOT WOOT PART 1 DONE!!!

 
Beat the deadline by 6 days!!! YAY!!!
 
 
After a lot of serious thinking I decided to do the applique with buttonhole.
I have way too much on my plate at the moment and as I have never done needle turn I decided to go the easier way.

 
Part 2 cut out and applique ironed on ready to go!!
