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.........

Block One nearly done....

Here we are nearly at the end of the month - it's been great to see progress on the blocks so far - thank you to those who have shared, it's always inspiring to see how everyone tackles the block as well as the yummy fabric choices :-)
You'll think I'm pretty slack (as a SAL hostess) for sharing just a partial finish - my block doesn't yet have it's pieced squares added.

Some lovely fabrics that I have been waiting for have come into my local quiltshop - I'm going to use those for my quilt instead of these, which were bits and bobs from my scrap box. So I'll be starting over and probably turning this into a cute mini ... great for Christmas gifting I think!

Remember to keep sharing, everyone - and keep calm (and post anyway) if you get behind - this is a friendly encouraging place to be :-)
Happy Sewing!!
Raewyn.
