1st SAL.....Peg, Dale and I committed to stitching Anni Downs - A Gardener's Journal in March.

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 couldn't help myself....

... I discovered that this is true for me....


... so whenever Hubz wasn't looking I hid in the sewing room and did a bit more.... (he thought I was sorting stuff!!)



... and this morning whilst Hubz caught up on the World Cup Rugby he had recorded, I did a bit more 'sorting'.....


I love this top......


There is so much to look at in each part of it.....


... I purchased some extra plain red French General for the binding.....


... now it's folded up together and packed in a box.....


Big thanks and Hugz to Chookyblue who hosts this fun quilt making, and trusty Susan who helps out with whip cracking..... and all of you who sewalong and are so encouraging to....

Righto, Gotto Go... I really need to do some of that sorting now

Fiona I LOVE your quilt top! All of the tops look fabulous but I love yours the most! Even over mine and I used FG too but yours just looks stunning! And its all packed up now but when you unpack you will fall in love with it all over again. I'm looking forward to seeing it all quilted. Are you moving far from where you are now? Like Canada...maybe? I think I remember conversations around the table when I was with Susan, Chooky and the girls...they were all talking about your move.
