Sal Sunday 2018, 18th August.

I have been stitching and at least this time I can say I have made a little progress.  I am still not enjoying stitching the border but as my friend Terri says, its no different to stitching anything else, just one cross after another lol.  With that in mind I have tried to be good and I am determined I will get to the corner before I do anything else.DSCF6263As you can see there is not that far to go so my aim is to get there before the next Sal update.

Please take the time to go visit the others in the group and see what they are up to as we all do different things.

Avis, Claire, Gun, Carole, LucyAnn, Kate, Jess, Sue, Constanze, Debbierose, Christina, Kathy, Margaret, Cindy, Helen, Steph, Linda, Heidi, Jackie, Sunny, Hayley, Tony, Megan, Catherine, Deborah, Connie

Hope you enjoy                                                                                                                              Hugs



About stitchingranny

I am one of those people who need to have busy hands so whether its stitching or papercrafting, I am always doing something. I also love being in the garden, though hubby does most of the work there these days.

    I hate stitching borders too, I usually try to bribe myself with the promise of a nicer bit of sewing! It’s a very pretty border 🙂

  2. It does look tricky with all the greens but it’ll be worth the effort. Keep going!

    The corner is in sight, what a great goal for next time. I always get motivated by those visual end points too. Happy stitching to you, what a great feeling it will be to knock that part off!

    I know what you mean about the borders. My Christmas ornaments all have the same checkerboard borders and I’m just bored of them already (and I’ve only stitched 2 of 12 blocks). At least you’re working down the boarder as you work down the pattern and not saving the border for the end, you might go mad then! Great progress 🙂

    You are almost there and then you can work on the fun stuff. Sometimes we just need to just get the boring stuff out of the way, so we can play 😀

    Looks great.

    I actually like stitching borders haha but if it makes you feel any better I’m really loving this. The colours are great and I’m looking forward to seeing it progress

  7. Thank you, and I know it needs the border to tie it all together so just a little but often (well reasonably often) hopefully will eventually get me there.

    Not far to go now. And from experience, you do just have to find s way of getting through the bits you don’t like so much! Well done, and hopefully we see a finished corner next time!

    I agree with Terri ^^ and the border is really going to finish the piece off well.


  12. Very true Claire. I keep promising myself little rewards when I achieve the next bit. That and this fantastic group are what keep me going.

    I share your pain, I’m forcing myself to stitch the border of my dragon before I get back to it, somehow although it’s still just crosses it’s not as fun haha.


    • Very true but I keep my self going with little rewards lol – I can have a bit of chocolate when I finished this leaf etc. and when I get to the corner I can do something else for a while

    Sometimes I have to trick myself — or treat myself? — to get through part of a project I’m not enjoying… but you’re about to TURN A CORNER! 🙂 Great progress!!!

  15. I do this – my incentive at the moment is that when I get to the corner I can go back to stitching my Kokeshi dolls for a bit lol. Guess it keeps us amused.

    Looking good, well done!!!!!!

    You’re nearly at the corner and it’s looking very pretty 🙂
