Gifted Gorgeousness...a day late and a dollar short!!

Well, here I am....a little bit late, but...I have a good reason!  LOL!!

So I'll get right to the GG for this month...and I can't quite show it to you yet.  I promise as soon as the recipient receives the gift (which should go in the mail tomorrow) I will show you the top.  Friendly Stitchers yahoo group is having an exchange.  My partner is really quick and hers arrived in the mail over the weekend, while I was away.  I finished hers up over the weekend, so I will only show you the bottom of the finished biscornu that I made for her.  You will have to wait a bit to see the top.

I also made an afghan for my Mom.  It was supposed to arrive to her by Christmas.  Unfortunately I hit a road block, only mental, in finishing it for her.  BUT...I made myself finish her afghan before I did any fun stitching over the weekend, so here is her finished afghan.  I loved this because it almost looks quilted, but it is indeed crocheted.  It was a MONSTER to put together, and probably took more hours to sew the over 200 squares together than it did to crochet them all!  I'm so glad it's over, and, Mom, if you ever want another afghan, it will NOT be one I have to sew together!!!!!

If you want to know more about the Gifted Gorgeousness SAL, you can find more information about it here:

This sampler was a SAL hosted on this blog :
I received the last page about a week before I went on this stitching retreat, so had to finish it while I was away.  I guess it could be considered a GG as it was a freebie offered on her blog.  It has since been taken down and is now for sale in her shop.  

I've thrown my hat into the needlepoint ring.  I heard about this design on the Stitchers of Wiehenburg Cross Stitch & Needlepoint Facebook group and just had to stitch it!  I'm nearly done, just a few more...hundred...squares in the background to fill in.  I loved stitching on this!

I also saw a picture of a grouping of the "Hometown Series" from Little House Needleworks and just had to stitch it.  This is the train station, the carolers and the church all stitched together.  Nealy finished, but not quite.  LOL

I also finished up this 15 sided biscornu that I finished stitching quiet some time ago.  I lacked the courage to get it together, so while I was away this weekend, I was determined to finish it up!  I found this freebie on the can find it here:  

I guess that's all I have for now.  I will try to post again soon, but I'm headed up to visit my Mom and deliver her afghan.  Hope she likes it!
