I don't have fireflies in my garden - which is a shame... only cats, bees, a dog and the odd dragonfly!! So please settle down with a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy!

Gifted Gorgeousness SAL 2015 - Update #9

Doesn't the 15th of the month roll around quickly?  I know I say it every month... but seriously I am sure I am losing minutes or hours somewhere as the days really are flying by!!

Anyway... enough lamenting about the absence of hours in my day and onto my GG post.  I have a finish and an almost finish this month!

Tiny Tidings XV - Lizzie Kate
Last month I was stitching on Lizzie Kate's "Joyeux Noel" from the Tiny Tidings XV - this time round I am going to show you the second design that I am stitching from this chart pack - "Feeling Festive".

The last time you saw "Feeling Festive" (way back in March....) he looked like this:

And now after some love and attention over the weekend he now looks like this:

Amazing how much you can stitch while watching the Last Night of the Proms on a cold, damp Sunday afternoon!

The sweet little Reindeer is also going to be used for my Christmas Ornie SAL post later in the month so you will soon see him finished!

Lizzie Kate - Eek
When I last showed you "Eek! back in June 2015 I was almost finished (missing threads had slowed the pace somewhat!).... which meant that I left "Eek!" looking like this:

Now after a dedicated stitch fest on Friday night and Saturday I can finally say that I have finished "Eek!".....

... and to top it all off this means that I have finished my Halloween Ornie SAL September piece well before the end of the month!  Double happy dance!

Well, that's it from me for this month's GG post.... don't forget to visit Jo's blog for the link ups to everyone's GG post for the month!

Til next time, happy stitching
Hugs xx 

If you're not sure what this particular SAL is all about.... Jo from Serendipitous Stitching hosts this SAL - the link to my post late last year about the SAL is here.... but essentially this SAL is about stitching charts/kits or using fabrics & threads that we have received as gifts, won in giveaways or anything that is intended be a gift or giveaway prize... or anything else that you can loosely use the word "gift" for!!  If you wish to sign up for this SAL, click on the button below or the button on my sidebar and you will be re-directed to Jo's blog.

I love your projects! I've never stitched a Lizzie Kate-design (can't get hold of them here in Sweden) but every time I see one, I really love them! Especially the reindeer is soo cute! Looking forward to seeing it finished in the Xmas SAL:))

Lesley said...

Love your Eek! finish. Your reindeer is coming along well:)

Festive is looking pretty! Love the colors on Eek, congrats on the finish:)

Elfie said...

Lots of progress! Well done.

Brigitte said...

Great Gifte Gorgeousness post this month. The Eek finish is so funny, and I love the little reindeer. Reindeer are one of my most favourite motives for ornaments, right after Santas and snowmen :)
