How is it the 15th of November already? This year is flying by! It's time for another Gifted Gorgeousness SAL update. This is Jo from Serendipitous Stitching's baby - we stitch on something that's been gifted to us through exchanges or giveaways, whether a pattern, kit, fabric, floss, whatever, and post on the 15th of the month (because it's 2015).
For the last few months I've been working on Prairie Schooler's Two By
Two, gifted to me last year in an exchange with Emma from Emma's Bloglet (you can see my last update here). This is what it looks like now:
I'm at 3600 stitches now, and I'm so, so, so close to being done with the hull! I can't believe how long it's taking, seriously - but finally there's a light at the end of the tunnel.
Lots of stitching done on my baby sampler, too. First it looked like this:
And now it looks like this:
I've made lots of progress on both the lion and the elephant. I've finished stitching the elephant, and I'm just finishing up his frame now. I didn't like the colors charted for the lion's eyes (blue!) and ears (orange!), so I used DMC 975 (a nice brown) instead. I'm leaving all the backstitching for last, which is why they look so undefined.
