Gifted Gorgeousness is the brain child of Jo the idea is that we use those things in our stash that have been gifted to us over the years so they actually get to see the light of day and receive some love, it might be a chart, a skein of thread, a piece of fabric or even some of the trimmings.
This year I decided that I'd try and keep up with the monthly challenge over on Needlecraft Heaven
January's challenge was this freebie although it has 2016 on it was easy enough to change to 2017.
I used a couple of Needle Necessities from my stash and a piece of silver lurex linda (that's not made any more sadly) the purple is in the backgound is my backing fabric.
How does it qualify for GG I hear you ask, well first off it's a freebie so a gift from the designer and second I sent it to Teejay who loves penguins as a surprise gift and he was as excited to get some post as he was to get the ornament :) lastly my fella gifted me with a scrap pack of fabric and I used a piece of it for the back of the ornament
I forgot to post again last week :( so once again I'm playing catch up but in a way it's a good thing because you (and I) get to see just how much I got done in a weekend
After Feb 4 /5
And after Feb 11/12
I'm hoping that this coming weekend I'll get this area finished but since I'm out all day Saturday it may not happen so I'll be happy if I can back stitch the tall leaf and get some of the last leaf stitched
For January I said
Start the Quaker book I got for Christmas Yep, I completed the covers
Not go mad with new starts I had 5 one of which is a model
Get my RR done Yes I just need to send it now
Work on hexie flowers I've done a couple
Sell some stash Yep a few things found new homes
For February I'd like to
Finish the Daffs
Get the model at least half done
Get my meet up exchange stitched, made up and sent
Work on hexie flowers
Sell some stash
I stitched for 98 Hours 10 minutes in January had 5 new starts and 2 finishes both of which were new starts and I spent time with a needle in my hand every day
