The November Gifted Gorgeousness SAL

It's already mid-November, and I'm a couple of days late for the Gifted Gorgeousness SAL again! 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...or the 17th, apparently.

A couple of years ago I stitched up SamSarah's Melon and Berry 3D designs. The lovely Emma (from Emma's Bloglet) sent me another fruit in the series during our exchange last year: Apple!


I'm stitching this on 28 count Christmas Red Jobelan, the same fabric and count that I stitched the other fruit on, though of course it's a different color. It's a much brighter red than the model on the cover, but a red apple is a red apple, right?


I'm stitching this with the recommended WDW and GAST floss. It shouldn't take long at all to stitch, but finishing the last two fruit pieces was a tense process, so hopefully this one goes smoothly!

Lots of love,

Nice start on this one, and good choice of fabric. Interesting series, I don't think I'd seen these before.

A great idea to use the red fabric for your red apple.
A lovely start!

I hadn't seen the previous two you stitched, before my time! You'll soon have a fruit basket full! In fact you could stitch this on green fabric as well!
