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.........

ON THE HOME STRETCH...with mixed feelings!

September is almost over...and so is our SAL.  I could have been finished a few weeks ago but I am making this one last.  I can't bear to finish THIS JOURNEY!  But I like happy endings and this is going to be one of those amazing finishes.  Except I will miss you all....until Chooky and Sue come up with another plan.  Which you are doing?....right girls?  Chooky....Sue?  You are going to run another SAL aren't you?  Oh please say yes!
I will add on the next two rounds this week and be back to show you my finished Journey.  By the way...can you spot the 'not'?  Let me know when you do.

It is looking great. Won't be long and you will be finished. No mixed feelings for me lol!! So pleased to have it together and be able to concentrate on other sewing. Have enjoyed stitching along with everyone and watching all the Natures Journeys growing!!

This looks amazing ... I love it ! And I'm with you ... a stitch a long makes us all accountable and ensures (hopefully) we finish one quilt at least each year! Bring on the next challenge Chooky !!
