It's the 15th of the month again and time to share our Gifted Gorgeousness from last month. I don't know about the rest of you, but I always have to check my photo album to see what I was stitching since I tend to change so often.
Check out everyone's stitching at our fabulous host Jo's blog, Serendipitous Stitching and here's my monthly GG:
AAN Spider Banner:
This is stitched on gifted 32 ct opalescent fabric and I managed to complete the entire first page plus a little more. I hope this one can come out again, but with Xmas peeking over the horizon, it likely won't be for long, if at all.
KLT Charting Owl SAL:
A finish! This was a gift from a stitching friend and I really enjoyed it. There's a frog SAL currently and I think I need to purchase it soon before sign-ups are closed.
I managed to fix my error and start on the yellow. This will be gifted to the group that is putting together quilts for victims of the Orlando massacre.
Jodyri Butterfly Quote:
This will go in DD's room when complete I think. Or maybe be a quilted hanging? It's a really relaxing stitch and I'm loving the threads. They're Jodyri Pink Laydee and Sparkling Citrine and I'm stitching on 14 count blue fabric, not so much turquoise like the photo.
RAK received from the lovely Kim McCool, posted here. I'll link to it since this is photo-heavy already. :)
Letters From Nora - S:
Stitching DD's initials on Nuriel's Forest 28 ct from Chromatic Alchemy 2 over 2 and with charted threads. This is also part of my Olympic distance stitching from Measi's blog to see how far I can get. I'll work on this one now until August 22nd.
Other Olympic Stitching - Ink Circles Reflections of Canada:
This isn't part of GG, but I'm excited that I was able to get every motif except the central flower stitched at least once. I'm using Jodyri Ruby Slippers on ivory 25 count Jobelan 2 over 1. It's been fun to see each motif come alive and it's interesting to stitch one of these. I didn't get as much done as I hoped when we had a severe heat wave and I wasn't up to stitching, and didn't want to get oils on my fabric.
I don't know about the rest of you, but sometimes I have trouble deciding if I'm going to stitch an entire motif or stitch an entire row. You can see I was doing the row stitching with the bottom right totem pole.
How do you stitch mandalas?
and Happy Stitching,
