SAL Sunday 28th April 2019.

Good morning my crafty friends.  After feeling completely fed up with Garden Alphabet last time I thought I would just put it away for a bit and do something else.  The something else was Kathy’s Little Hardanger Sal which I soon completed.  I sorted through some other bits and bobs but nothing seemed to catch my eye.  Then on Monday I suddenly got GA out again and started stitching and for the first time in ages I enjoyed it.  I have not had a lot of time this week but it has progressed quite a bit since last time and here it is.   DSCF7035Still quite a bit to go to finish Y but there is no rush,  I am once again enjoying it and I am not going to put myself under pressure and spoil that feeling.

This is a wonderful SAL with each person tackling their own project so lots of interesting things to see.  Why not pop along and have a look but do allow time for those in other parts of the world to catch up – we are a very International group here.

Avis, Claire, Gun, Carole, Sue, Constanze, Debbierose, Christina, Kathy, Margaret, Cindy, Linda, Heidi, Jackie, Sunny, Hayley, Megan, Catherine, Deborah, Connie, Clare, Mary Margaret, Renee, Jenny, Carmela, Jocelyn, Sharon

Thank you for your visit and do hope you enjoy looking at everyone elses work



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.

    Oh hurrah! I love this piece and watching it grow, though maybe I wouldn’t like stitching it quite as much?! Y is looking good, and only Z and some border left? I’d love to see a full picture again, you have done so much on this in the past year!


  2. Fun project! I really like that you showed such a close up too. Excited to see this in 3 more weeks 🙂


    • Thank you Sharon. As its getting close to the end now I am trying not to reveal too much as some people have said they don’t want to see the whole thing again until the big reveal when its complete. Helen x

    well done Helen! You were amazingly productive with Learning Hardanger skills, so I’m surprised you managed to find time to work on the SAL project at all!


    • Lol Claire, sorry but I wasn’t a learner I just joined to support Kathy. I have done hardanger for years in fact you may soon see some more as I have been asked if I could show a picture of those I had previously done by someone who saw a peek of one behind one of my pictures.

    It’s good to take a little break and return to a project with rejuvenation for the design. Love the colors on this letter 🙂


  5. Carole says:

    I’m so glad that you’re enjoying this again. I think that sometimes we forget that we do these crafts for pleasure 🙂


  6. Thanks for reminding me Carole. Yes! we do them as a means to relaxation not stress but I think we all forget sometimes.


  7. Sounds like you just needed a break to spur you on. A change is as good as a rest so they say. It’s looking lovely. You’re almost there with the letters 🙂


    • Yes next time I am going to have two projects on the go – not really a rota but each getting a little break whilst I work on the other so I am always refreshed. See if that works as I do think some of the problem is its taken so long I am getting bored. This happened with Gracious Era too.

    Love the colours on this piece. I must admit that I chop and change my feelings about a piece when I am sewing too.

    So glad you’re enjoying this piece once again. I hope you have fun with it right up to the finish!


  11. Can’t wait to see the whole alphabet. Looks very pretty Helen 🙂

    I’m so glad you are enjoying this piece again. It looks lovely!

    I´m glad you found it again!


  14. Yes, sometimes a project just needs fresh eyes on it. My interest sometimes wanes and then returns. I don’t know why that happens. But it will be wonderful to keep working on this great project of yours.

    You’re so right, sometimes taking a little break from a project is all you need. I’m excited to see this piece in full — but only when it’s done. No spoilers!

    This is such a lovely project. Sometimes we just need a break and change!
