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 Peg - I hate to burst your bubble - but "someone" has already done all her blocks...and I've heard a few have made a good start - but Chooky asked us not to post until February....so I'm not saying another word....lol
it look great - are you using standed thread for the circles etc?? I'm thinking of perle 8.

Oh Susan....that came out wrong..I was trying to say...am I in front of where I should be....I know we have some very amazing cleaver ladies who have already done some wonderful blocks...With the thread I have so many part used threads especially Cottage Garden I thought I might try and use these....Perle would be awesome...I might try using 3 strands to give a bit more body on the larger ones...thanks for the idea..xxx

Hi Peg
I am wondering what fabric you are using for your background? Your needle turn looks very good indeed.
