I had great fun making this up although the string for the lights was getting to be rather heavy by the end of it!
One of the bulbs so you can see how lovely they are
I'm off on the annual beading weekend class in a little over 8 hours from writing this :) really looking forward it so check back on Sunday evening when I will hopefully have remembered to take some pics for you
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 :)
It's a small GG report for me this month :( I have had a finish that is a GG project but it's for my Mum for Christmas and she reads my blog so I can't share it yet.
First is My Ark birth sampler, I'm stitching this for fella's first grandchild due around Christmas
Fella's son is getting married next month and he asked me to stitch a wedding sampler for him.
After much searching around he finally settled on this one, Just Married Snippet from Lizzie Kate.
I didn't have any of the called for colours apart from one so we spend a couple of hours one afternoon playing about with what I did have and various possible fabrics until this combo was settled upon, I think it turned out rather well :)
It's very odd for me to be organized so far in advance! normally I'd be finishing it a day or so before it's needed and putting it in a ready made frame on the morning.
For August I said
Pick a new weekend project Done I went with the Daffodils
Start a wedding sampler/gift Done and almost finished it in the August as well but not quite
Get the next RR done and posted on time I did the stitching in plenty of time, posting day was today and it's going out tomorrow or Saturday
A finish would be nice Other then the RR I didn't have one
Sell some stash A couple of things found new homes
For September I'd like to
Start a birth sampler for fella's grandson to be
Get the next RR stitched in plenty of time
A finish would be nice
Make good progress on Croakworth
Get a few symbols done on Alchemical
Get caught up on hexie flowers
Make a start on the Sunflower hexie swap
Sell some stash
In August I stitched for 59 hours 14 minutes which I'm happy with given that I was away for a few days and had family visiting for a week as well during the month. I had 2 starts and 1 finish and I stitched every day. Bowling season is winding down now and by the end of the month will be over :( but I'll have more stitching time which is handy given the plans I have for Christmas gifts and a new hexie swap to do.
