April Gifted Gorgeousness

Long time, no see...LOL  Yes, I know I just did a blog update yesterday, but this time I get to show you all the things I've been stitching for the gifted gorgeousness. (And then some!)  If you don't know what the Gifted Gorgeousness is, stop over to see Jo at Serendipitous Stitching.  She organizes us all each month on the 15th to show things we are stitching that pertains to a gift.  Either a chart, fabric or floss that was given to us, or something we are stitching for someone else.  It's been a great way for me to bring myself to accountability.  You can read about her "rules" here if you would like to join in the fun.  And you can see what others are stitching by visiting her blog.

First off is the Linen and Threads Mystery SAL that I'm participating in.  You can find the patterns here.  They are still available so it's never too late to join in.  There is a facebook page where you can see all the beautiful colors people have chosen, and there are already 4000 members.  Here is my progress...


I'm still working on Leave a Light On which was a Birthday gift from my husband last year.  I'm not making a lot of progress, but every little bit helps, right?


I'm going to mention this here...I have finished an exchange piece I stitched for our annual St. Michaels retreat.  I can't show all of it because a few of the ladies visit my blog occasionally and I want it to be a surprise.  Here is a little snippet...I still need to finish it off, but by next month I'll be able to show the whole picture.


I've been a bit preoccupied lately with life in general.  The most exciting thing that has happened lately is that my son proposed to his girlfriend.  They are the cutest couple (and I am in no way impartial...LOL) and we couldn't be happier to welcome her into our little family.  No date has been set, but things are already being discussed.  I can't wait for the happy day!
