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!

Late Gifted Gorgeousness Post - August 2017

I have been very remiss in posting for GG stitching for a couple of months.... but here I am at long lost with an update on no less than 3 x GG pieces!

Tulip Time - Just Nan
Started: 4 August 2017 (#48/2017)
Fabric: 28ct Lugana "Malva" Chromatic Alchemy
Threads: DMC as per chart
Fabric was a gift from Tiff (Tiffstitches A Blog)

I showed a start picture in my recent starts posts - I worked on this piece for another couple of hours after the challenge was revealed.

Dream Big - Country Cottage Needleworks
Started: 1 May 2017 (#37/2017)
Fabric: "Dawn of Spring" Jodyri Designs
Threads: mix of DMC, Weeks Dye Works & Jodyri Designs
Chart was a gift from Tiff (Tiffstitches A Blog)

The last time you saw it I was working on the rabbit using the Jodyri Designs thread "check name)
After a couple of days rotation in August it now looks like this:

Now I have just noticed that it would appear that I have never showed this start below... sorry...

Fur-ever Friends - Laurel Burch (Mill Hill Kit)
Started: 17 May 2017 (#41/2017)
Kit Fabric/threads: 28ct black linen with DMC
Chart was purchased using a gift from Linda (Stitching with my Furbabies)
I started this in May but haven't picked it up since... I really must do so soon as the colours are so gorgeous even if stitching on black is a pain in the you know what! 😏

Have a great stitchy week... and

Til next time, happy stitching
