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.........

Stitching madly!

January has almost finished...and so have I! 

Hello! My name is Susan (aka suzitee) and I've participated in a few of the SALs in the past...A Gardeners Journal,  the Christmas one (WHAT WAS THAT ONE CALLED AGAIN?) and Some Kind of Wonderful....all finished and in use :)

I didn't sew along with the smaller projects...I'm more a BIG project kind of gal :) so I'm very excited to be stitching Anni's new pattern along with you all.

I haven't quite finished the stitchery yet...


...but it's the weekend, so anything is possible!

My pattern for Natures Journey arrived a while back, and I'm still deciding on colours...possibly overthinking it a bit! I'm swaying between a Flower Sugar version, and a Bonnie and Camille inspired version, using scraps from many of their collections. Either way, I'll be using lots of white, tone-on-tone prints for the background, along with some low volume prints.

I'm so excited to be participating in this group again...there is nothing like encouragement and whip-cracking to keep me on task :)

Best get back to my stitching!

TTFN
