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.........
2014 we had the year off..............
5th SAL 2015..........inspired to continue we are doing another quilt project.....Anni Downs newest quilt Natures Journey.....
6th SAL 2017.............A Holly Cottage Christmas by Michelle Ridgway.......once again the pattern is in an affordable book so it is easy for everyone to join in...........and you can raid your stash for the fabrics........or lash out and buy a the whole lot........this SAL will be run by Fiona aka Bubz Rugz and Raewyn........

June block finished

 This fabric didn't show up well in the below photo
so I made this to show it better...
I had bought a charm pack a few years back, can't
remember the brand but I have some fat quarters from
the same fabrics so that is what 
I'm using for the patchwork...I used a piece of
felt for the circle and left the stitching off the toe
and top as the fabric already had stars on it....
Looking at the pudding applique, I've decided 
to use some other stitchery from the book
for that block as Christmas pudding really
has no significance to our family....And I've
decided to do the candle mat as a gift so I'll be doing
that soon to count as my May project....
I'm enjoying seeing everyone's posts...

I like your fabric choices. I hadn't thought about it, but Christmas pudding isn't a tradition here, either. I'll check out other designs in the book and see if one works better. Thanks for the idea.
