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...............

I have a problem.............

Look what I did in 5 mins this morning..............seriously......why had I not done it earlier..........clearing off the table I found the pages I had copied months ago out of Some Kind of Wonderful so then I thought I would put them into bag and I knew where I had some bits and opened another draw and found more so I feel Susan has been a good influence on me so far..........
See the reason why I did this SAL.........these NEED to be done...........not sitting in a basket getting old....... 
I have been working on another project this morning in the chook shed but was itching to make another thread catcher..........this is another 7x11in one and Fairy Girl I think will get this one...............
and a different fancy stitch around the top................
I am addicted to these cute thread catchers from the Red Home book............
Catch you later..............
