Yes, pictures were taken last week of my stitching, but the blog was not written. I am also behind on my blog reading and commenting - staying off the computer is giving me lots of time for stitching but it is putting me so far behind on what everyone is doing.
The plus side of my blog slump is that I am right on time for the check-in. Jo at Serendipitous Stitching created and hosts Gifted Gorgeousness as a way for us to thank the people that gifted us with something stitching related. I have three pieces this month that I fit into this SAL. First up is Christmas Presence. I count this one because it was a freebie from Heaven and Earth Designs for their 2015 SAL and therefore, a gift.
I am a couple of columns away from a page finish and then just a small page away from a finish.
The next piece is It's About Time:
The pattern for this piece was gifted to me by Kate at Needle and Haystacks. Another couple of column on this one and I will have a page finish.
Shakespearean Fantasy's pattern was gifted to my by Pull the Other Thread:
There are some single stitches in the green area to finish off before I have a column finish on this one. It's on the frame for its regular Friday night stitch so another column finish is very possible.
I have been spending the majority of my weekend time stitching Chatelaine's Secret Victorian Garden. Before ordering more dark blue beads, I decided to go through my beading supplies and was thrilled to find a large box of them. So the most heavily beaded part, the center, is done (except for the bicones and cubes). All that is left is the rest of the border, one corner, and all the big sparklies.
Speaking of a weekend. It is this weekend. Head over to Random Ramblings to sign up. You haven't participated before? You are missing out. IHSW is the one weekend a month you are encouraged, by stitchers around the world, to sit and stitch all weekend. I don't know how much stitching time I will get in as the weather is supposed to be beautiful and I will want to be outside, but I am aiming for a finish on SVG, so I do have an incentive.
