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.........

My turn

Thank you Chookyblue for invitation to join SAL again. 
Loved the idea for using `Red Home`,`Tis the Season` and `Some Kind of Wonderful`. This was a wonderful way of making ear-marked projects. 
I think it`s about time I showed mine for the month of January.


I  started by making the small `Thread Catcher` and then saw the pattern on my yearly calender for the cotton reel.
 As you can see it turned out much bigger than it should be! A lovely storage container for me.
Till next month,
 Happy Stitching,
Clare.
