Gifted Gorgeousness


Here we are again on the 15th of the month, so it must be time to post about Gifted Gorgeousness! The brainchild of the fabulous Jo, we all post about things we've been given or hope to give away at some point, once we finish them, and who knows how long that will be for some of my WIPs?

Since the last post I've managed to finish Somebunny:
stitched on 28 ct Aether by Chromatic Alchemy as charted 2 over 2

although I managed to forget all about finishing this for Valentine's Day, so this will have to be an Easter gift! I had intended to go by the fabric over last weekend, but then this happened:

so I decided against going to the store. 

DD got some roses instead, a little miniature pink rose plant that smells wonderful! She likes to have it in her room all the time, but we take it out to get a little sun during the day. 

I had a few little finishes as well:
 LK design with stash threads and 16 ct? oatmeal aida


The monthly designs are from Palko-laps great calendar series that can be found here. I'm really enjoying them and they're only a few hours each, plus a nice way to use some of my hand-dyed stash. I'm sending them to my Grandma and include a little card from DD as well. 

The last little finish was a butterfly for the Facebook group Rainbows for Peace and Comfort. They plan to make quilts for the families of the victims of last year's Orlando massacre. They still need a few butterflies if anyone is interested in participating. Send me a message if you'd like their email if you're not on FB. :)

Rainbow Butterfly by Climbing Goat Designs
14 ct Aida with preferred threads from FB group

Join me next month to see if I've managed to finish the March card in time for St. Patrick's Day and maybe even the April one too! Plus another butterfly, maybe?

Also, the giveaway I won from Kerry arrived! Such fun little kits. :) I think they'll be good to add to my travel stitching kit. 




Happy Stitching!

  13. Somebunny looks great! If you think about it, that's even more fitting for Easter than for Valentine's.
