Gifted Gorgeousness - June Edition

It's time again for Gifted Gorgeousness and time to show off our latest stitches we plan to give as gifts, or have received as gifts, or any other way we can shoe horn into the theme.

This is, as always, hosted by the hostess with the mostest, Jo! Please check out her blog to see where everyone has signed up and sign up yourself if you'd like.

Let's see what was stitched on since last time, I don't think there were any more Stitch Maynia projects in the last half of May, but I haven't been posting lately and there's at least one finish to show off. :)

4th set of socks, will be for DD
 Finished 50th bday gift! The glasses were changed from the original chart to match similar ones in our office.

 Found this finished, not FFO while cleaning and finally made it into a card
 3rd pair of socks, I read the pattern incorrectly and used tiny needles, therefore ended up with tiny socks that fit DD's doll

 2nd pair of socks, on hold while I worked on DD's and the accidental doll socks
 Fully finished this one to give as a birthday gift, recipient loves it! Backed with felt and simple hanger.
 Finished Hitchhiker shawl for my Mom's birthday

And that's the run-down for last month. I hope you've all had good months. I'm woefully behind in blogs and will see if I can catch up over the summer.

Happy Stitching!

Zodiac SAL - Gemini

I have 2 family members under the Gemini sign, my mother and sister. My mother's mother was also a Gemini, although she died in 2001. 

Gemini People - What they are like:
Gemini people can come across as clever and quick-witted, eager to dish out the juiciest pieces of news and happenings to their friends via text message and social media. And in case that’s not enough, they’ll probably send you a Snapchat story for good measure. Geminis love fast cars, trendy clothes and any wacky gadgets or games they can tinker around with. Part of the fun (and curse) of Gemini people is that you’re never quite sure which personality you’re going to experience. Will it be the vivacious, pun-dishing jokester, or the snarky, mean-spirited critic? But if you’re willing to see Fifty Shades of Gemini, they’ll color your life in thrilling ways!

This mostly fits my sister, as she's a social media fiend, but she'll have sides of the others as well. She's a lot like my mother, although she doesn't like me to mention it. ;)

Gemini is an Air sign, so let's see what I have that might fit in this month's theme. 

These super-breathable, keep-your-feet-cool socks:
 my first pair ever, still love them!

Warbreaker - a picture of the book cover in which a big portion of the world magic has to do with "Breath"
 Spiders can "float/fly" on air

Another knitting finish, Hitchhiker Shawl in Robin's Nest - and birds fly in the air

and I think that's all I can fit in the theme this month. 

Hope everyone has had a good month and I'll try and get posting again. Life catches up sometimes. :) Now school is out and our last Tball game is tonight, so hopefully I'll have a little more time. 

Happy Stitching!


Mischievous March Wrap-Up

I managed to start 5 projects this past month, even if I didn't get that much progress on any of them.  First up are the Sweet Annet sta...
