SAL 2015

Hi everyone, I'm Sammie, AKA Mama Bear, that's me at the top over there. I live in Huntsville, Alabama, USA. That is in the Southeastern part of the map if you're looking for it. Huntsville is home to NASA and Space Camp.
I was a part of SAL for the first 3 years. I really enjoyed it. I've been hoping we'd do another quilt. I just found out about it and  I ordered my book on Tuesday. Yes, it has to come to me from Australia so am not sure how long it'll take. I need to go and pick out some fabric. Also, downloaded and printed the stitchery for January. I think I'll make it into a bag and save it for a Christmas gift.
I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you better and keeping up with your progress. Its always fun to see the individuality of each project.

Welcome Sammie
As you know from your previous SAL's - you can be guaranteed of individuality here.
I sometime wonder what the designers think of how we "do" their designs. Hopefully they enjoy it.
