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.........

Nearly There!

Just a quick update... my quilt is now back from the quilters..... (sorry about the sun in the top corner)......
A couple of close ups of the quilting.... done by a lady called Jenny in our embroidery group......


And... after a trip to my local patchwork shop some binding was purchased.... I would have gone for a brown of some kind if it wasn't for the helpful assistant who suggested we look around for some other options.... love the one she came up with (an Anni Downs fabric - from her "Under the Mistletoe" range) ..... 
seen here along the bottom of the photo. 

So.... just have to cut up the binding, sew it on and do my label!....I'm getting there not long to go now!

Happy Stitching
Asta
