SAL SUNDAY – Ravenhill Farm #4

I really have not done much this time. I am not a fan of blanket stitch and no matter how careful I try to be, it always looks uneven. The central garden is edged in blanket stitch and if I did half an inch in a day I had done well. Still its finished now, so on to more interesting stitching. I have just moved down to one of the bottom gardens. The central garden is hardanger so I am leaving that until I have finished as I do not want to risk pulling it out of place with my hoop.

Although I am starting to type this post on Saturday night, whilst hubby is watching the England match, I have forgotten to take a picture of my work so I will take one in the morning and apologise here and now because this means my post will be a little late tomorrow.

LAST TIME

AND THIS TIME.

TAKEN THIS MORNING.

As most of the England members will know, England won their game in the Euro’s last night and will now play Denmark at Wemberly soon. Not being a footie fan I do not know when though of course I will support my country when they do. (even though I probably will not watch the match lol)

With talk of countries may I take this opportunity to wish our friends in the USA a very happy Independence Day.

Now grab your drink of choice and have a break whilst viewing what my other SAL friends are up to.

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.
