Guess what.... Finally I have some GG stitching to show you!! But first up let me show you an exchange gift that I received in the mail last month (after I posted my GG post).
Recently Kaye (Kitten Stitching) organised an Easter exchange, which I joined. You have seen the card I stitched for the exchange. Unfortunately my exchange package was a bit slow getting down under... I suspect that with all the public holidays (Easter and Anzac Day) that we had in April the mailman decided to go on a bit of a slowdown! But it did finally arrive and was definitely worth the wait!! :o)
My exchange sending partner was Tiff (Tiffstitches A Blog). Below is a pic of what Tiff sent me....
So that was my lovely gift story... now onto the stitching story....
Since Tiff was so lovely to send me such a gorgeous chart I just had to start it for Stitch Maynia on 1 May!
"Dream Big" - Country Cottage Needleworks
Started: 1 May 2017
Fabric: "Dawn of Spring" Jodyri Designs
Threads: DMC & Jodyri Designs
Eightsome Reel - Papillon Creations
Started: 6 May 2017
Fabric: 28ct green/brown linen (stash)

Last month I told you about the chart that I was gifted from a fellow "Stitch from Stash" stitcher. Well ... I started it for Stitch Maynia as well...
Free Mystery SAL - Linen & Threads (Part 1 - Jan)
Started: 7 May 2017
Fabric: 14ct white Aida (stash)
Threads: Jodyri Designs
As this is a free design it qualifies for the GG post....
Note though I did start this one back in April and attempted to do it 1 over 1 on 28 ct fabric but didn't like it... so I re-started it again on some 14ct Aida that I had in my stash. Not my preferred choice but I was so keen to start it that I just decided that it would work no matter what!!!
Dogs Leave Paw Prints - Lizzie Kate
Started: 14 May 2017
Fabric: 28ct Jubilee "Sugar Cane Crunch" - Stitches & Spice
Threads: Weeks Dye Works
So that's it for this huge GG post... I have certainly made up for the lack of GG stitching over the last few months, haven't I?
Have a great week... and
Til next time, happy stitching
