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.........

Well its not the last minute yet!...
I have finished some thread catchers...and aren't they addictive!.. Great little gifts and so quick to make!


They just kept multiplying!

Now to finish the shoe bag...I can see these multiplying too...good presents also!


I have been using fabric from my stash....this is the year ..I'm going to put a hole in it!...famous last words.
Cheers Lea

the orange material is just so cute..has little sketches of household things..even a vacuum cleaner!...(what would you use that for?) I bought it at hatched and patched when we had a blogers meet in Bathurst.
