Gifted Gorgeousness March Link-up Post


Welcome to the March Gifted Gorgeousness link-up. The link-up date continues to be the 15th and I will keep the link-up open until the end of each month so you have plenty of time if you are late posting.

The format remains exactly the same, there is a list of rules on the main sign-up page if you want to check what is required but basically anything connected to the word "gift" is allowed, whether it was a gift TO you or is a gift FROM you.

For the first fortnight in March my focus has been Halloween at Hawk Run Hollow.  The plan is to stitch this for two weeks each month until it is finished.

I have nearly finished Block 10, only a little bit of black to go:

stitched over 1 on 25 count Cassia Rose evenweave from Chromatic Alchemy

I am continuing with my Dark 13 project which is Mani di Donna's Halloween Sewing Basket.  The plan for this one is to stitch it on the 13th of every month.

stitched on 32 count grey linen

Oh look, more black!

Back in February, I completed the block I was stitching on the Faces SAL from Joan Elliott.  This is stitched on gifted fabric:

stitched on 28 count Snapdragon Jazlyn from Crafty Kitten.

Now it is your turn to show us your Gifted Gorgeousness for the month.  Please use your name or your blog name in the field and NOT the words "March Update" so I can easily see who has linked up this month.  And link to the actual post, not just your blog.  It is easier if you copy and paste the link, rather than typing freehand.



Finally, there will be an Easter Blog Hop next month, keep your eyes open for the Sign-up post coming soon.

I uploaded a line to Gifted Gorgeous for the first time after being invited by your work.

Beautiful stitching, Jo! Love this latest block with those creepy alligators (I guess--or are they giant mutant toads :). Such great little details in this project!

You'll have our full support and encouragement for the 2 weeks focus work because... we can't wait long to see Halloween finished, it is so great, all the blocks are amazing. I won't get close to this lake! xxx

Lots of progress on HRH, that block is looking great. And I still haven't restarted mine.
I'd be tempted to stitch the Halloween Sewing Basket more than just on the 13th!
