Gifted Gorgeousness update. These are projects that were gifted to me in some way (kit, pattern, fabric, floss) or projects that I am making for others.
I stitched a bit on Dutch Sampler by Sandy Orton. I seem to skip around as I work on this ... but I really enjoy stitching it.
Here is where I left off in March:
Some big excitement this month (lol) ... I used a gift card to purchase floss for my "American Sampler" project (also by Sandy Orton). This sampler has some interesting stitches such as: rice stitch, queen stitch, florentine stitch, vertical satin stitch, alternating running stitch, and alternating half cross stitch.
I am stitching on a piece of 26 ct Antique Brown linen that I purchased with an Etsy gift certificate. I might have had an easier time had I chosen to stitch on evenweave instead of this linen (which has some thicker, some thinner threads), but I like the look of the linen - so I will forge ahead and try to keep up.
That's all for my Gifted Gorgeousness updates. I have been working on several of my other projects, which I will feature in my WIPocalypse update later this month.
