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.....

Saying hello and I am pleased to be joining you all.
My name is Maxine from Simplewayssimpledays.blogspot.com and this is my first SAL so I am very excited to be joining all of you. My blog is also new so a little light on for stuff at present but as the year goes on I hope to make it a bit more interesting for those of you who drop by. I ordered my pattern on Friday along with another Gossip in the Garden after spotting that on another persons blog. I have not mastered buttons and links yet but hopefully soon, may have to ask for help here from Chookyblue or any other kind soul willing to point me in the right direction. Below hopefully is my January stitching which I am going to add to Christmas blocks I have had awaiting for inspiration, so I think if I can find another 5 or so Christmas stitcheries I will start to assemble that quilt top also.


Thanks again for having me along,

Maxine in Melbourne, Australia

Lovely Angel - I wonder who will join her??
Ask away - Chookblue has a page on her blog for Blog tips - but we are happy to help.
Great that you added a comment yourself, and a reminder to use labels as well. - the label option is on the right hand side of the screen when you make a post, and remember to click Done when you have entered the text.
