June - Smalls SAL

My third month taking part in Mary's great blog sharing idea and I'm not doing so well! The SAL all about small stitching, any little project you have stitched, it doesn't have to be fully finished.

Here's the full details about Small SAL 2020 - thank you Mary.

I haven't stitched much at all, my right arm is so painful and although I can hold the fabric and stitch left handed after fifteen minutes I've had enough. That said it is getting easier so hopefully I will stitch more again soon .... to be honest my enthusiasm is also lacking ... for many things!

Anyway I have completed Block 5 in the Stitching the Night Away SAL with the ladies as Needlecraft Haven. It took about four weeks, all stitched left handed.

It was our 31st Wedding Anniversary on Wednesday, no meal out or holiday but we did enjoy our quiet day at home. It's  English Wine Week, there's a piece about it on my Aimetu's wine, food and travel blog.

Hubby and I enjoyed a bottle of English Sparkling Wine, a little at breakfast and then with our dinner. I'm not drinking much at the moment due to medication but really enjoyed our bubbles.

My radiotherapy starts on 1st July, I'll try to keep up with all the blog news and hopefully I will still have some stitching news to share.

Thank you to everyone who has sent a flower for my church tree and thank you to those who are stitching one to send - I really do appreciate them.

  6. Very understandable that your enthusiasm for somethings is missing at the moment. I am sure it will return slowly but surely but that being said your stitched piece looks great!

    Happy Anniversary to you both!

  7. Happy Belated Anniversary! And well done on persevering and stitching lefthandedly too. Such pretty colours.

  8. Well done on completing another block.

  9. So sorry this is late, I am trying to get caught up on my emails and blogging.
    Happy Anniversary to you, I hope you had a lovely day.


  10. Your stitched piece looks great, love the purple. Sorry it's taking you so long to stitch, but at least you know you can do it left handed!
    Happy Anniversary to you both, just a little late.
    I hope your treatment is going well for you, sending hugs!
