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..............
5th SAL 2015..........inspired to continue we are doing another quilt project.....Anni Downs newest quilt Natures Journey.....

don't worry.............

Hi Girls..............
while still waiting to hear from some girls I would like to say........
"DON'T PANIC" if you don't have your pattern yet......there are quite a few still waiting............mostly overseas girls....but they are starting to arrive which is great.....
we still have a week before February gets here and the blocks are not due on the first......you have the whole month to make them...............we won't leave anyone behind just because they are waiting for the mail man to bring there pattern............
While everyone can work at there own pace as in get ahead if they want I will ask that we only post whats due in the current month................
We don't want anyone to feel left behind..........
The idea of the SAL is we are all stitching together........
Keeping each other on the monthly target...........
Having said that I need some to be a big quicker as I could not cope with everyone posting there finished blocks on the last day of the month..............
We all have different life demands ie kids, illness, work, whatever it is we will all get to the deadlines together...........
Happy Stitching....
