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.........

Intro and Christmas Wishes

Hello Ladies,
I'm Kel, from AlwaysApplique.blogspot.com.au
First Timer SAL participant. Thankyou to chookyblue and Susan for hosting this.

I've started the Christmas wishes Stitchery, decided to go with blue as I figured I have enough traditional looking xmas stuff. Loving the variegated thread. Love everyone's stitcheries so far.

Am hugely excited to start the quilt. I'm going to stash bust this one, I have a layer cake that will be the basis for the colour scheme.

Here's my Stitchery so far.




Nice to meet everyone and I look forward to our journey together.
Take care all,
Kel x
