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.........

Chooky's progress.....

so I have not finished yet but I have more then 1/2 the stems stitched down..........
decided I needed the leaves as I went along since they are under the stems so I spent today turning under the bits and cutting a few more bits I had not prepared...........
so everything is turned and pinned on ready to stitch........
the creatures will be tackled once all these bits are attached........
I am LOVING all the centres..........they are amazing...........
go girls go.......

Hey Chooky! Yes, there are lots of those stems aren't there? Have to admit I have not finished the July centre yet, but I am really loving it! This quilt just gets more beautiful as we go. Your brights are gorgeous. Xxx
