Gifted Gorgeousness

With having to work on the Lake District Sampler and Fruit Sampler last year my GG fell apart part way through the year but I've signed up again this year and I have weekend projects planned that will fit in until the fruit is finished :)

Gifted Gorgeousness is hosted by the lovely Jo over at Serendipitous Stitching and the idea is to stitch those projects that have been gifted to us wither it be a kit, a chart or using fabric/thread that was gifted.

My first GG project is Just Nan's 4 Wishes.
I was RAKed way back in 2008 with the chart, bead/charm pack, fabric and some of the DMC to stitch it was well.   Last year I made it my Birthday start and didn't get very far with it because the Lake District and fruit arrived.
I've made it my first weekend project of 2016 :)

This is as far as I got with it last year


And after it's first weekend outing, band 2 is finished and band 3 half done.
I'll come back and add the beads at the end

It's a great design Lindsay and good progress on your first weekend stitching

It's wonderful Lindsay, might have to whip mine out the cupboard and give it some attention this year, I've been meaning to do a JN for ages - just need to source the charms for mine.

That looks like being such a pretty design. I will have to google it as it isn't one I recognise.

That is adorable! I'll also be looking this one up. Not that I need any more charts, but.............

A good start. I find that it is easy to see progress on JN's samplers.

Justine said...

Very pretty - must feel good to get back to it!

Thanks for taking part in GG this month. I hope you manage the whole year this time!
I also think anyone who stitches a JN gets double GG points because it's like a gift to me seeing the stitching LOL
