Gifted Gorgeousness Update and since the full moon is nigh, it's also time for another WIPocalypse update. Gifted Gorgeousness projects are projects that were made to be given as a gift -or- in some way or part received as a gift. WIPocalypse projects are all of the projects that I have in progress and hope to have completed before the end of the world.
My first GG project (shown above) is a card I stitched for my Mom. I selected a freebie frog and added "Hoppy Birthday" and "Mom" to the design to make the card.
Falling under both categories GG and WIP, I stitched on my Winter Sampler by Sandy Orton.
I also worked on my Autumn Sampler by Sandy Orton. I finished the little school house photo and the green guide lines on the note paper. This one is really coming along.
Yet another Sandy Orton sampler I am stitching is "Simple Blessings". I received the chart in a wonderful book of patterns as a birthday gift.
I also worked on my Rambling Rose miniature sampler. This was gifted to me in a prize drawing by Jo. It is stitched on 40 ct gauze , which is transparent and delicate. You can see the shadow cast behind it from the stitches in the photo.
The final GG project I stitched on was "Quaker 2011", a freebie by Gazette94
The final WIPocalypse project I stitched on was "Ride to Dreamland". This is an oldie ... I probably started it back around 1993! It sat in storage for a long time ... and my progress seems to move at a snail's pace. There is a lot of blending filament that adds lovely sparkle, but it's a "booger-bear" to stitch with.
