Gifted Gorgeousness SAL update February 2015
It doesn't seem like a month since I posted the first update in this new SAL organised by Serendiptious Stitching
It's such a lovely idea to share details of projects etc which have been gifted to us or stitched as gifts.
As per my previous post I didn't get chance to do this update yesterday (15th) when it was due.
Because most of my stitching time has been taken up with the 3 SALs I joined in January I don't have a lot of progress to show.
One of the SALs is Mirabilia's At the Met and I was gifted some of the threads (the beautiful Caron Waterlillies) so an update on that seems appropriate
There is lots of black (it calls for 5 skeins) so the progress there isn't obvious. The swirly sections at the bottom are done in one of the Waterlillies.
This was a banner I made for a baby shower using hessian with cotton patchwork fabric bonded to it - there was no need (or time) to stitch on the letters as it will only be used for a few hours.
I stitched a quick little project which is destined to be a gift for a little dancer - made into a cushion with this as the centre.
As I hoped I did finish the Christmas Village piece which was gifted to me as a UFO. It is currently at the framers.
Thank you for popping by and sharing my enjoyment of my stitching passion with people who understand.
