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 …
What is it they say about the best-laid plans? ;) Here we are again and it's been a week since I've posted my stitching. I'd like to say I'll be better, but I'll say "I'll continue to try!" instead. "Aw shucks.." The nice thing about it being awhile is I do have some decent progress to show you. I've been working on HAED Dragon Under Glass which will eventually look like this:
And I started the top left corner for an HAED challenge last year like this:
You need to start and finish a complete page and I don't think there were any restrictions (someone please tell me if I'm wrong!) so I moved over to the 2nd page on the top. The third page is only a partial page for the top part.
Day 1 Day 2 (after picking up the missing DMC) Day 3 Day 4
I might have missed a photo in there some day, but that's where we're at so far. It's not quite at halfway. I think the deadline to finish is sometime in March, so we'll see how far I get…
I'm still enjoying the specialty stitches SAL and have another 2 nights work into it. I'm not quite done, but maybe tonight?
Clearly the left corner isn't going to match up perfectly, but I think having it at the corner will at least make it less noticeable. I should be able to finish this tonight and maybe pull out something else, depending on time.
It's October Opulence for Theme-tas-Stitch and since it's Wednesday I should be getting out my Letter H from Letters from Nora. We'll see how the night goes!
I've somewhat stopped my rotation for now since this is sort of the Christmas stretch and I'd like to work on a few different things. I also recently picked up this Dimensions kit:
and plan to stitch it for DD for Xmas. She loves trains and Xmas, so I think she'll get a kick out of it.
I hope you're all doing well. I'm much more on the mend and hope to be 100% soon.
Happy Stitching and thank you for all your wonderful comments!
