Here I Am!

I know it has been a while yet again! I'm not putting myself under any pressure to blog more often as i know it is fruitless so I'll just blog when I feel like it. Anyway today I am trying something new and blogging solely from my iPad. I've taken photos with it, edited them with it and now I'm attempting to write a post. Unfortunately the App store doesn't have the Blogger app and when I had it on my now not working tablet I could never get photos where I wanted them so fingers crossed this app works!

So I have been doing a fair bit of stitching since my last post. No finishes but I could now show the birthday gift I did for Lainey but it's on my laptop! So if this doesn't go well I may end up on my laptop anyway! If it works I'll showmit next post!

I can't remember what I showed last time or what new starts I may have had but I have joined in a couple of SALs. The first one started on 1st September and it's an Autumn SAL featuring any Autumn design by Little House Needleworks or Country Cottage Needleworks. I chose Autumn Band Sampler by Little House Needleworks. I'm stitching it with some of the suggested threads and DMC.

My other SAL came about through Instagram. I noticed a few people were joining Priscilla and Chelsea for a Sunday SAL stitching on Little House Needleworks Lantern Lane. Well I already had everything we needed to start so start I did!
I don't remember showing much of my progress on the Stitchrovia charity SAL. To be honest there isn't a lot of progress! I only really stitch on it at the craft group I go to and I have missed 2 weeks recently. However I hope to get back to it properly unless something crops up and I need to start something else!
My Winter Days Sewing Basket is coming along quite nicely. i have finished one side and got a good bit done on another. The making up will be interesting once all the stitching is done!

Barb and I still stitching away on our SALs. On Mondays we stitch on Lizzie Kate and I am stithcing Snowman '10. He is such a sweet stitch too.
Then on Fridays it is our sheep SAL and we both stitching Jump for Joy. The grass on mine is growing very slowly at the moment. Hmm I can't find the photo!

Of course no post is complete without Mini Jolly Old Fellow! I can see the end soon so I gaining enthusiasm for him to be finished!
Well I know this post isn't very interesting but I did't want to put lots into it if it didn't go how I wanted it to so I'll see what happens! Fingers crossed!

Until next time take care everyone.

With much love,

Sally xxx
