Gifted Gorgeousness #1

Hi Stunners!

I have signed up for the Gifted Gorgeousness SAL which is being hosted by the lovely Jo. If you would like to sign up just click on the button on the left and it will take you to the sign up page on Serendipitous Stitching. Basically we post on the 15th of each month (yep I'm late as usual) a wip that has some kind of element of gifting in it. Either something you received or intend on gifting to someone else. As my beautiful Crafty friends are very generous I have alot to choose from. However, I have elected to focus on 5 for now.

For the first one of the year I have been working on a gift for my sister, Gail. It's a Mystic Stitch from Maxine Gadd's Birthstone collection. October: Rose Zircon. 

The fabric is from Colour Cascade Designs. It's an Ice Dye which is really cool. If you can't find a piece of fabric to go with your chart you can design your own. You are allowed to choose up to 4 colours and Tammy dyes it and it's a kind of lucky dip situation. This is Hot Pink, pink and silver. I think it's perfect for this chart as I intend on stitching all the black.

The other pieces I will be working on for this SAL are:

HAED Fallen Angel which is a new start. This chart was RAK'd to me by my very good friend the lovely Nina (Pistot-Stitches)

HAED Feel the Magic which I have finished Page 1. This chart was RAK'd by the beautiful Johanna (stitchstitchknit)

Colour Cascade Designs and Fabrics - I've been waiting for so long. The beautiful Angie (Miamina Musings), Mark and Charlie kindly gave me a birthday gift voucher and I bought the chart with it. Very small start on it so far. I started in the middle so I believe this is her sleeve.

And finally Tilton Crafts - Wishing On Stars. I was RAK'd the chart by the magnificent and one and only Nguyen (Spices up your life). This is a new start as well.

As you can see I have some very generous friends with beautiful taste. Thank you again ladies and I will be thinking of you as I stitch these beauties.

Take care everyone! Big love and hugs to you all
