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.........

SAL HOUSEKEEPING...............

Hi
This post was posted 3/1/15 but as we have had quite a few more girls sign up I am changing the posting date so it stays at the top for a few days as a reminder.........

Put your name at the end of your post too please..............

And read below this post to see the new ones..................


For those who have joined before you may remember this.......so it is a reminder but for the new girls this is just a few tips to help..............

LABELS
When you post if you can please label you post with your name  at least...........you will see some girls use a few labels others just their names.............see what is appropriate and add them......if I need to find something you have posted it will be much easier for Susan and myself to click on your name in the labels.................
For example
this post has several labels.......housekeeping, Chookyblue, NJ2015

COMMENTS
As this is a group blog and the comments can't be sent onto you the comments only go to Susan and myself as administrators of the blog.
If you do a post go and comment on your own post first....this can simple be by putting one letter in the comment text box..............and before you hit publish tick the little box that says email follow up comments to (should be your email address).
Now you can't reply to these emails when they come to your email box but you see what comments everyone leaves for you without having to come back to the blog.................
(oh and until the robot rubbish gets taken off by bogger just ignore it.........I do and it works everytime)

SAL INVITES
The invites to join the blog have all gone out............I see 1/2 of you have already accepted them..........please pop up a post introducing yourselves...........
And take a trip around the link list of the sidebar of all the girls participating in the SAL........you'll find some great new friends.........
Everyone should have their invites to the SAL..........there are a few who need to accept them.....

Happy Stitching
Chookyblue..........

Hello, my name is Marlene Carpes, Brazil
I signed up for the SAL in 2015, but I must have made some mistake because my name does not appear in the list of participants.
You can still join the group?
Thank you very much

Hi Chooky & Sue,
I thought I had sent you a comment asking if I could join but I too don't see my name on your list. I was in your SKoW and Tis the Season stitch along and thoroughly enjoyed it. I would love to join in if you still have room.
My blog is nimblethimblestitcherydo.

Hi Chooky and Sue.... can I join in please. Hope I'm not too late. I just signed up for the BOM and I've love some friends to keep me motivated. Sorry Chooky... I know you wanted the quilt made from stash but I just can't spare the years it would take me to choose the fabrics! Fingers crossed......xx
