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.........

One off the late ones

As always (or nearly always) I'm behind schedule.  Our theatre production is over.  All the costumes are being dry cleaned and laundered ready for storage.  National swimming titles are but a dim memory and my biannual scrap book retreat is over.  This morning my prepped blocks for March came out and I've been stitching away.  I'll be doing some more this afternoon while waiting for my son to finish school.  Tomorrow is my Sewing Guild day so I should have 5 hours of uninterrupted sewing.  Enough time to complete March and get started on April. I'm mindful that May's BoM will be arriving soon.

Thanks for the inspiration - both from Chooky cracking the whip and seeing what others are doing.  I'm hoping to be organised enough to include some pictures tomorrow!
