my Gifted Gorgeousness Update for October

"Mini Banner Fall" by Debbie Mumm
It's time for another "Gifted Gorgeousness" update.  This stitch-a-long is being hosted by Jo of Serendipitous StitchingGifted Gorgeousness projects are projects that were made to be given as a gift, or in some way or part received as a gift.

I continued stitching on "Mini Banner Fall" by Debbie Mumm (kit purchased with gift card from my Mom), making good progress.  I have been super busy with work, but I will still try to complete this project by the end of the month.

I also worked a bit on the border of 'A Chirpy Sort of Place" (kit gifted to me by a special friend).  Not too exciting, but progress is good.

That's all for this update ... I wish I had more time to stitch - but I will take what I get.
Happy Stitching!

my WIPocalypse post for September

Multi-Coloured Alphabet by Gail Lawther
I'm happy to report that I have a finish for this WIPocalypse update!  I finally finished "Multi-Coloured Alphabet" by Gail Lawther.  I used a selection of variegated floss to stitch this fun project.  The bright and happy colors bring me joy.

I also managed a bit of stitching on "Mini Banner Fall" by Debbie Mumm.  I am moving right along on this project and hope to finish it by the end of October.

I am having trouble getting into the WIPocalypse blog - but I will return to add the Q&A and the proper link as soon as I get the info.

Happy Stitching!

my Gifted Gorgeousness Update for August


It's time for my August "Gifted Gorgeousness" update.  This stitch-a-long is being hosted by Jo of Serendipitous StitchingGifted Gorgeousness projects are projects that were made to be given as a gift, or in some way or part received as a gift.

I actually managed to create, stitch and finish a Halloween ornament (shown above)!   This little spooky old house is Gifted Gorgeousness X3 I stitched the ornament with threads that were purchased with a gift card, I used buttons that were gifted to me by a crafty friend, and I created the chart to offer as a freebie Halloween design, so you can grab a copy from my website here: http://hobbyloco.com/patterns/oldhouse.html

I put some time into "Hummingbird and Fuchsias" which is a printed kit that was gifted to me by my Mom.  I stitched the flower bud and did the outlining of the bud and leaves. 


I pulled out "Gathering Honey", which I hadn't worked on for quite a long time. (Fabric and threads were purchased with a gift card.)  I completed the stitching and outlining on the lower left garden section. 


And last, but not least ... I stitched on my "Mini Banner Fall", which is moving along nicely.  (This was purchased as a kit with a gift card as well.)



That's all I have to show for this month's update.  I hope to have even more progress made next month.

Happy Stitching!

my July WIPocalypse Update

Multi-Coloured Alphabet by Gail Lawther
It's time for another WIPocalypse update.  I did manage a pretty good amount of progress on some of my WIPs this month.

I added a few more blocks of color to my "Multi-Coloured Alphabet" by Gail Lawther.  

I also added more stitching to the border framework of "Castle Sampler" by Teresa Wentzler. 
  
And I put some time into my "Berry Patch Rooster".  


I also found time to whip up a little spider ornament from one of my very old patterns (available here).  I took my little spider chart and stitched him on some plastic canvas, adding red beads for eyes.  I then stitched with variegated floss to fill in a circle shape around him.  I backed the stitched piece with felt and pinked around the edge. Then I added a ribbon and some beads to finish off the ornament.


It felt good to have a finish for the month, even though it was just a small finish!
See you next time.
