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.
Kitten Stitching and the Friday Frolics (or FF) is a SAL blog run by me to help us work our way through some of our WIPs and UFOs, each Friday.
Friday Night Sew-In or (FNSI) is a monthly SAL, run by another wonderful SAL Mama, Wendy from Sugarlane Designs, again to help us get some of our stitching goals accomplished.
Let's get started with GG. So, for this month I have a very big Happy Dance - DD's London Blanket is finally finished. Yay and Double Yay! Can you see me doing the Fandango all over the house????
Way back on my last GG post (in November last year - where oh where does the time go?) I had stated that I hoped for a finish soon on the blanket but alas! It was not to be and it was still two more months before it was done but here it is at last..... (It has only taken me SIX months to knit it - lol!)
It will be winging its way to DD later today, alongside her "shopping list" of Aussie foodstuffs:
- Smiths Crinkle Cut Salt and Vinegar chips
- Burger Rings
- Double-coated Chocolate Tim Tams
- Milo (the drink not the cat!)
My next Gifted Gorgeousness piece, also doubles up for FF and FNSI.
This pretty design was a gift to me from a dear friend - isn't it pretty? I am in love with the 32ct spotted grey fabbie (the first pic shows the correct colour).
Design: Do more of what makes you happy
Designer: Abbey Rose Designs
Fabric: 32ct Grey-spotted
Floss: Mixture of suggested and own choice over-dyed threads
Pretty happy with my progress on this piece.

P.S. I do have some other GG stitching and bits and pieces but they are parts of exchanges, so I cannot reveal them yet .... Next Month!
