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.........

a start on January

Well, I have made a start on the January project!..Thought I would get a lot done.. (very unforgiving attempting cream stitching on red)… when your half blind!!
 BUT.. it has come to an abrupt halt… due to this!!…. cataract surgery today
Hopefully this will be a temporary setback and I will stop seeing 2 of everything … soon!
Cheers Lea

I nearly did white on red but didn't because any mistakes would be glaring at me!! It is looking good so far. Take care of your eyes - you are going to need them for the SAL!!

Oh, you'll be back to better than normal in no time. My Honey Bear had this done to both eyes last summer.
