Have joined my first SAL

I am a slow stitcher and already I am a couple of months behind by hey I don't care.

I have never been a big sampler girl but I am really enjoying this one.

It is by http://linenandthreads.com/ and there is also a group on facebook with all the wonderful pictures of peoples process. https://www.facebook.com/groups/linenandthreadsSAL/

I am not doing the full width of the sampler as I didn't have a piece of fabric large enough as the last few years I have cut back on buying stash and am trying to just stitch with what I have on hand.

So without further ado..... here is my progress so far (about half way through the January section or my take on January LOL)

Whats Been Happening In My Part Of The World

Amazing Sunsets have been occurring, thanks to the summer heat.

This was a few weeks ago and last night we were treated to this..........

This ended in a summer storm complete with thunder, lightening and about 4mm of rain.

Now onto the food front.

I managed to get some figs off my tree before the wildlife got to them. They are tiny but tasty.

Last weekend was spent making pickled onions, would you believe that it is actually a two day process!

Well that is about it for now, hope to have some crafty posts very shortly.
