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.........

May Blocks

I am sew pleased that I continued with these blocks. In the beginning I didn't really like the needle turn but I was determined to keep going in the SAL.. Now I actually enjoy stitching the blocks and I’m very happy at how they are coming together ..

I did change two of this month’s a little. Just had to give the butterfly fillers and did another square instead of an initial..

thanks Chooky and Susan for pushing me along knowing there will be whip cracking if I don’t do my blocks…Smile
