Gifted Gorgeousness and Solo September Update

It's taken me a lot longer than intended to get my Solo September progress up. This one-at-a-time month is hosted by Justine and lots of us joined in this month. We're halfway through and I had intended to be finished by now, but lots of visitors and a big birthday celebration over the weekend slowed things down a little. It was really great to see everyone and everyone seemed to have a great time. 

Rejoice Tree was here last week:

And now almost all the cross stitch is done!

I'm fairly certain I don't have enough thread to do all the curlicues on the R's, so I will likely leave the left one identical to how the right is now. Otherwise I'll be playing thread chicken stitching a little bit here and there. 

On to Gifted Gorgeousness hosted by the jovial Jo of Serendipitous Stitching. This is where we share anything remotely related to gift-giving or receiving. The sign-up link is there if you want to join in this month!

Rejoice Tree - above, for my Grandma

Letters from Nora - S - for DD

I didn't get as much done on this as I hoped, I was having some trouble getting into this one. Maybe next time.

Rainbow Butterfly by Climbing Goat Designs for victims of the Orlando massacre

A Kiss for a Snowman - DD

Linus and Snoopy - stunt stitching and mailed off!

Next month let's hope for at least one more finish and if I'm lucky there will be more finishes to add to Rejoice Tree. 

Happy Stitching!



  1. Tree is looking terrific - that thread is just wonderful - and so are your GG projects. Life does interrupt at times, but you just gotta roll with it.

  2. Great stitching and cute finishes Tiffany.


  3. bellissimi, adoro Charlie Brown

  4. Wonderful stitching on everything. Rejoice tree is looking fantastic, I hope you have enough thread to get done what you want on it.

  5. Lovely stitching projects!! Snowman is my favourite. Belated Happy Birthday:) Glad to know you had a great family time. Did you get any stitchy gifts?

  6. Great stitching update considering you have been busy partying for your birthday! ;)
    I finally got the rejoice tree!! D'oh! Never noticed these were actual letters...
    I have A Kiss for Snowman in my stash and am now rather tempted to start it.... thank you :D

  7. I hope thread chicken results in a finish for Rejoice! I love that..thread chicken! I have played that game a time or two. Your progress all looks great but I have to say I really love the Linus and Snoopy pieces, so cute!

    1. Thank you! Leonore of Needle, Pen, and Sword used "yarn chicken" in a post and it made me think of how often I've played that and thread chicken.

  8. Great GG & SS post, love your progress on Tree, it looks lovely and cute Snoopy & C. Brown too. xxx

  9. Do you stitch faster when you're playing thread chicken? I do - as if I'm trying to get all my xs done before the thread runs out!
    Rejoice tree is looking great - I hadn't seen the letters either!
    I love A Kiss For Snowman, have almost added it to my stash a few times, so I'll enjoy seeing more of yours!

  10. The Rejoice tree is looking lovely, such nice thread variation in the colour you chose for it.

  11. You made great progress on your Solo piece. Nice stitching on your other projects.

  12. Your Rejoice tree is looking amazing. I wish you luck stretching the thread till you are finished. Love all your other stitching too.

  13. THanks for taking part in GG this month. The Rejoice Tree is great. Maybe you could find some DMC to match the individual colours and fake it?
    S looks lovely too, I really enjoyed stitching her earlier this year.


Thanks for any comments!
