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.........

I know its August but I'm slowly plodding along.....

Have finally finished April 
Starting on May, June, July
Hoping to finish with the rest have a week of leave coming up
Football and Netball finishes mid September
I'm aiming for Oct long weekend to finish

Biggest stumbling block was I just wasn't getting any better at needleturn
In fact it was looking worse and worse
Did some blocks twice - don't ask me where the cherries are
They are misplaced but completed 

Have received a few instructions and hints and tips from my local group
And this has helped slowly 
Mays blocks are prepped ready to go
Stay tuned - committing to one block a night to finish


(Even tried fussy cutting the diamonds - centre piece cause the points didnt meet
But sshhh dont tell anyone  - our secret)

You are doing nicely Naomi... This was my first needle turn project and I must say that it is not my favorite thing to do. BUT I am determined to finish this SAL ...
Won't be long and you will be up to date.
