Gifted Gorgeousness is hosted by the lovely Jo over at Serendipitous Stitching and the idea is to use all those charts/ kits/ threads/ etc that have been gifted to us over the years instead of leaving them sitting in our stash feeling unloved, shoehorning is also permitted :)
This month I only have my progress on In The Post to share with you, I've been busy working on Tea (the model) and this last week I've been spending almost all my time working on my Cheshire Show entry so very little stitching has happened :(
In case you wondering (or can't remember) I was gifted the kit for In The Post for Christmas a couple of years ago by fella, started it on Jan first and then got the fruit to stitch for someone and it was put aside now it's my current weekend project
This weekend is the annual stitching weekend I attend and it's out 10th year so we will be having a little celebration and doing a goody bag exchange. The idea was to make/ buy something that reminded you of Dove Farm for all the others attending. I decided to bead a pen for everyone and make it more of a commemorative item.
But they aren't pens I can hear you thinking :) That's because the Amazon seller I bought the pens off has let me down :( I ordered them on June 1st and they should of been here by the 9th but they showed up so I had to come up with an alternate plan Thursday evening and this was it.
Each one is done with a individual in mind expect a few because they didn't give their prefs so I went with what I liked
For May I said
Finish the Sunflower panel No not quite but that's because I have a model to do
Pick my Birthday start and start it Done but it's not the one I wanted to start :(
Get a few symbols done on Alchemical Romance Done
Start at least one other new project Done, I started and finished two and started a third :)
Get In The Post half done Done :)

I stitched for 92 hours 17 minutes in May, more than I expected but having a stitching holiday helped with that :) I had 5 new starts and 2 finishes and one day without a needle in my hand :(
