A blog trying to focus on all the nice things in life, those moments when everything turns out right. Finding the perfect fabric for that chart you love, the ideal sampler quote, just the right picture in all the 1000s of magazines you own. Meeting people who share your interests and obsessions and totally understand why you NEED that chart when you already have enough to last until you're 104
For newbies, this is my first year long SAL. Click on the picture above for the full details.
We will be posting and linking up on the 15th of each month, because it is 2015. Should be easy to remember.
Elizabeth Shephard by Scarlet Letter - a gift from Nicola:
stitched on 30 count linen
Mail Art based on Primitive Hare's Hallowe'en Town
stitched over 1 on 32 count Cognac linen
Book of Spells
stitched on 40 count Jewel Butterbeer gifted fabric
Gifts received this month included an RAK of this awesome piece of fabric from Rachel. I tried photographing it and it's just impossible to get the colours right, so I'm using the stock photo from Crafty Kitten's website:
32 count Belfast
My plan is to stitch at least one of the Ink Circles' Hallowe'en Mandalas on it. The Ghosts will look great stitched in white.
My other gift was a Thank You from Lisa for sending her the issue of Cross Stitch Collection she appeared in:
I am using the project bag to house my Plum Street Samplers 12 Days of Christmas.
So far the frogs have stayed on the outside of the bag!
And now over to you - Here is the place for you to link up so we can see what Gifted Gorgeousness you have been stitching so far this year. Please use your name or your blog name in the field NOT the words "November Update" so I can easily see who has linked up this month.
And link to the actual post, not just your blog. People are still getting this wrong! It is easier if you copy and paste the link, rather than typing freehand.
Thank you. I can amend links if you make a boo-boo though.
Finally, it's time to sign up for the final blog hop of the year - The Advent Calendar. Same format as last year - sign up and be allocated a date. Post a stitched Christmas picture on your date plus a comment about the festive season. You can email me now if you like stating if you have a preference for an early date or later in the month or any dates you can't do.
