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

Leonie and Lurline I need to hear from you..............today's the 31st..........the clock is ticking.........
So that is pretty good to only have 7 to get finished up out of 60 girls.............
congratulations so far you have made a total of 
132 thread catchers and shoe bags.........AMAZING..........

very happy for everyone to get a start on the stitching etc for the next month once they have the current month finished but if we hold off posting finished items for the next until that month starts......that way we are sticking together...........Stitching-a-long together.............
Keep Stitching.......
