If you are not sure what I am talking about.....
Gifted Gorgeousness (or GG) is a SAL run by the wonderful SAL Mama, Jo from Serendipitous Stitching. Basically, on the 15th of each month, we post anything which is stitchy gift-related.
.... but, as you can see, I am
So, what sort of Gifted Gorgeousness have I been up over the past two months? Lots really, so here goes... in no particular order....
First up, I "gave" the gift of knitting (and the yarn, needles and pattern mag) to my DDIL last month, and within one
week, she had finished her first scarf!
I am so thrilled that she has taken to this craft like a duck to water.
I also "gave" her the gift of Cross stitch. I took her up a whole swag of cross stitch supplies to get her started (I thought that I had taken a photo of them but I cannot seem to find it anywhere on my phone - c'est la vie - just to let you know it was a couple of Prairie Schooler Christmas ornament designs).
She started to pick it up but not as quickly as the knitting! That will have to wait for our next visit, I think!
Okay, what is next for GG? Let's see, I have started what I am calling a "London Blanket" for DD. It is the same pattern and yarn as the Baby Blanket I made (you can see some pics of the finished blanket here, if you are interested) but with a greater range of colours as it needs to be bigger, naturally. Once it is finished it will be posted off to Old London Town to keep my DD warm over the English winter.
This is the colour palette which we chose together. I think that it is going to be gorgeous when it is done!
... and here is a further progress pic - I am onto colour two now - can wait to get to the lilac soon!
and, look, it is taking me so long to write this post that I am well underway with colour two....
... the other GG project that I really want to show you is this Prairie Schooler "Baby Sampler" which I made for the baby of the baby blanket fame.
Don't you just love the red cow?
Now, I am sure that I have some other GG projects floating around but I want to get this post up and posted, so next time.
