SAL Sunday -13th January 2019


Wisteria done, or so I thought until I popped the image onto the computer, and then I see my poor ladybird (or ladybug to my American readers) hasn’t grown her spots yet.  So this will be remedied this evening.   I now have one line X, Y and Z to do, plus I think some butterflies, and then the bottom border.  So getting close.  The wisteria flowers have outlines on the chart but as I started to do them I was not sure I liked them, then my hubby said “I don’t like that it just looks like coloured boxes now”.  That was it the back stitching came out and they will remain as they are now which I think is more realistic looking.

This is a wonderful SAL group and with their support I can see myself finishing the 2nd of my UFOs.  We each work on our own project so its just seeing all the different things growing and taking shape. Our only commitment is to post a picture of our progress every three weeks.  If you don’t comment for a few months your name is taken off the list but no one will contact you or hassle you and we all miss the occasional posts when holidays or illness or just life itself takes over.  Why not visit and see what the others are up to.  Our members are all over the world so you have to allow for the fact we are in different time zones.   If you like what you see and would like to join us please contact the first name on the list Avis, who kindly sends an email a few days before to remind us that its time to post our updates, and keeps us all up to date with new members etc.

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

All for now folks


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.

    The wisteria is really pretty! I had to laugh at the ladybird missing her spots. I’m always spotting things on the photo, which I don’t see on the project itself LOL

    Really pretty, and I think you’re both right, much better without the backstitching.

    I also vote for no Backstitching! Only three letters and the border, you must be feeling the beginnings of the finishing mojo!

    Helen you’re sooooo close! Wisteria is one of my favorite flowers, so I love it looking more natural like this.


  11. Its one of mine too and we are lucky enough to have a big one that grows all along the back fence and along two side of the house, so I really wanted it to look natural. I had already changed the colours if you recall because the ones on the chart didn’t look like ours lol .

    I had to look that flower name up in my dictionary, so I´d know the Swedish name for it. Blåregn, it´s a lovely flower!!!
