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.




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.


Hope everyone is well

Take care and Hugs

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.
