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.........

April's post ...... just a tiny bit distracted

I am a little late, I think I had a tiny excuse ........ I got married on 11 April 2015.

I had a wonderful day, surrounded by wonderful friends and family, the weather was perfect and we had so much fun.




I was slightly distracted at getting my blocks completed, but as Chooky said "no excuses".  I am so enjoying this SAL - it's a challenge but is coming together beautiful.  I'm a little fussy, needle turn is not easy for me, I can see improvement for me each month. I'm loving my chosen fabrics, blue is out of my comfort zone.  Everyone seeing my work says it looks great. 



Loving seeing the SALs blogs, your work is totaling inspiring to me. I especially love the brighter fabrics. I'm so looking forward to putting the quilt together and seeing all finished quilts. 

Happy stitching
Hugs Meg
