SAL Sunday – 30th June 2019

Despite a rotton summer cold, which just wont go away (and makes it hard to concentrate), I have managed some progress.  One of my bees now has wings, and the bottom border is growing steadily.  I am going to try and stick with this now as I can really feel the end in sight.  Though it may not be until later in the year as there is still quite a lot to do.

26. 30th June 2019I do hope you will go and see everyone elses work, as this is a very different Sal to most and we each work on our own individual projects which can be very different.  It you are struggling with a large work, or have UFO;s (un-finished objects) hidden away then this is the SAL for you.  We post every three weeks to show our progress and there is lots of support here to help you on your way.  No targets to meet as we all stitch at a different pace and some have very little time to spare.  If you think you may like to join us contact Avis – the first link below.

Thank you for visiting


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 know how hard it is to concentrate on anything when your head isn’t feeling well. I hope this cold finally runs the course and lets you get back to doing what you enjoy. ❤

    Hope you are feeling better soon — I hate summer colds! Looks like you are in the home stretch (or at least the last lap?) of this beautiful piece.

    Borders are the bane of my life but they do make so many pieces look complete. Good luck with that cold, I too tend the get them in summer.
