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.........

Hello to everyone !


My name is Florence and I live in France.
We have been very shocked these last days…so much hate and violence….
That's why I'm here.
We, women of all the world, with needle and fabric, are building a world of creation and friendship !
No more to say…
I'm happy to be here for my 3rd SAL !

Florence
We are all Charlie !
