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.........

First finishes for SAL…

This is the first time I have joined Chooky and Friends at SAL. I am looking forward to working on all the projects from the three lovely books…
I have SKOW but had to order “Tis a Season” and “Red Home”. Hope they arrive soon.
 Even though I don’t have the book I was able to make the Thread catcher by looking at how Chooky made hers…
