I've noticed a couple of new followers too so a big welcome to you too.
Gifted gorgeousness is upon us again so time to share what I've been stitching that falls into the gifted category. Thank you Jo for being our lovely host as always.
The travelling box is here so I've been making for that. I've made 10 things including jewellery, pincushions and other small stitchery's. I'll reveal all that next month. So back to this month and I've made 2 necklaces using the wooden pendants and been working hard on the sampler too.
Firstly gifted to others... The necklaces. I made a button and loop closure on this one using some pretty variegated cord I had. And stitched it in Anchor perle cotton shade 1375
Next up was the one I showed you last month, stitched for my best friend's birthday yesterday. I just went with a simple silver snake chain.
So on to the sampler... As you know gifted to me by the in laws and abandoned for a good 18 months. I picked it up 10 days ago and stitched on it for the weekend and got to this point
5 days later I was here...
The band across the middle took 3 days. I think it was because it was so tedious.
Then came the urn and the hedge
And a bit more hedge and what will be steps when the back stitch is added.
So as it stands today we have a fruit tree
I love the colour it has added. We are calling it the plum tree as my daughter decided we needed to identify what it was.
So this week I'll be stitching the final square of the ABC sal and finishing up a birthday present.
Have a great week and happy crafting.
