Hi folks! Just dropping in to show you what I've been doing for the gifted gorgeousness. If you are unfamiliar with Gifted Gorgeousness, then you should go see Jo over at Serendipitous Stitching and check out her challenge. You can find the sign up page here. And if you are interested in seeing what others have been doing, you can check out her page here. Jo has lots of interesting things going on all the time, things to challenge us and things to just have fun. I really enjoy this challenge, it's one of the few things that keeps me blogging!!
Ok, so here's what I've been up to. I have been participating in the Linen & Threads SAL which is a freebie and you can find the patterns here. I have been using vintage Bucilla threads. These threads are no longer being manufactured and so far I haven't found a conversion chart. I found these in a flea market and thought I would have enough to finish out this sampler....so far so good. I sincerely hope I don't run out!! I'm stitching this on 28 count black over one. Yes, a challenge, but I really like how it's turning out!
I am stitching this for my Mom. This was a Dimensions kit called Sweet Nectar. I started it more than a year ago, but it's stitched on 36ct over 2 with 2 or 3 threads....I have trouble getting my threads to lay right so I get tired of this quick. I've been working on it lately though, I really need to get it finished.
Now for the little extra! I'm going to have giveaways when I blog. I have quite a few so I'll add a new one each time, that way I'll know which ones you are interested in and you don't get something you don't want. First up is a chart I stitched a Looooooong time ago. Yes, it's framed and hanging in my house!! (One of the few BAPs I did frame! I love it that much) So it's time to let go of this pattern. This is Lighthouses of America by Cstitch. It has a diagram in the pattern to tell you which lighthouse it is. If you would like this chart, please write a comment that indicates you would like it. I'll be away from home for a week and when I get back, I'll randomly pick a person.
And that's all the time I have for today. I hope you are all enjoying the weather (whatever that might be wherever you are!) We are having a heatwave here right now so I've been sticking close to the air conditioning....and still spring cleaning (hence the giveaways!). Happy Stitching everyone!
