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 #2

It is now the middle of February which means it is time for an update on my "Gifted Gorgeousness SAL 2015" (GG SAL) stitching.

I think that by now you probably know that I participated in a couple of Crazy January challenges last month, and that for some of my new starts I chose a number of designs which have now gone on to be my stitching for this particular SAL.

Due to the challenges I haven't really managed to stitch on all the choices since the last update... but I have stitched on three of them...

The first two of these is:

Moutons de Saisons Printemps et été - Collection Tralala
Gift from Kaye from Kitten Stitching.  The original post of when Kaye gave me these charts is here.

Below are pics of where I was with "printemps" and "été" when I posted my last GG update:

"Moutons de Saisons - printemps" - Collection Tralala

"Moutons de saisons - été" - Tralala Collection
And this is where they both are now are some love and attention this weekend:

"Moutons de Saisons - printemps" - Collection Tralala

"Moutons de saisons - été" - Tralala Collection
As you can see "été" got a lot more love than any of the other ones this rotation.... yesterday was a very productive afternoon in front of the ICC World Cup Cricket.... (Australia vs England).

The next chart that I managed to stitch on between updates is one of the Lizzie Kate charts.

Halloween Limited Edition Charts - Lizzie Kate
Giveaway win from Carolyn (Taking One Stitch at a Time) - link to my post about the giveaway win is here

Halloween Limited Edition Charts - Lizzie Kate
This is where I was with "Eek!" when I posted my last GG update:

Lizzie Kate's "Eek!"
January 2015
And this is what "Eek!" looks like now:

Lizzie Kate's "Eek!"
February 2015
A little of purple has been added... not a lot of action but as we often say "one stitch is better than no stitches" :o)

So that's it for this "Gifted Gorgeousness SAL (GG SAL)" update.  I will be back on or near the 15th March 2015 with another update.

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.
