SAL SUNDAY – 12th September 2020

Unfortunately this time round there is little to show. The frogs have been up to mischief and I have spent more time un-stitching than actually stitching. For those who have never had to frog on l over l then I can assure you its not fun. Also the fact that I have not been getting on very well with this section seems to be putting me off it. I am thinking of sorting my next UFO out before having another try and if I still feel as though I am getting nowhere then I will make a start on that for next time. You will just have to see if next time you get the Baby Garden or The Village (which I have decided is my next UFO).

Anyway here is last times :-

Here is where I am now at – without the frogs interference this panel may have been finished but not even half way yet.

Our SAL is very different from other SALs each person is stitching there own cross stitch or embroidery design and the group is there to give support and encouragement, especially to those struggling with large projects. We are all around the world so are as different as our stiching. Do visit and see what others are up to but remember there will be time differences. The group is quite large at the moment so they will not be taking any new members at the moment – sorry.

Thats all for now, I hope everyone is keeping well


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.

    Sorry you’ve had to do some frogging. It’s a real pain when stitching over one, isn’t it. Hope you get on better with it next time.

  5. It’s so frustrating having to waste valuable crafting time unpicking. Sometimes a change is as good as a rest so if you need to swap projects for a while, go for it 🙂

    I think you made good progress. The squirrel is adorable, as is those bee skeps. I hope you continue working on this one. It’s so lovely!

    Oh how frustrating! Still, it does look like you’ve made good progress. How close to the end of the project are you? Maybe taking a short stitching break from it will help to get it completed.

  11. It’s a challenging embroidery! I have had such a “mini” embroidery … it takes a lot of patience! Don’t be discouraged, because the design is beautiful! It’s worth it!
