Gifted and IHSW September

Hi Stunners!!!

This months Gifted Gorgesousness SAL and IHSW were so close I thought it would be more prudent to moosh them into one post.  

This months GG is Supersized Butterfly Ball Max Colours by Aimee Stewart from HAED. My months progress on this crazy confetti piece. The chart was a gift from my lovely friend Nina. 

And for the IHSW weekend I managed to finish the row. THis puts me at the halfway point for the HAED challenge #3. It's the large format chart so to qualify I have to stitch just under 1 and a half pages. It's pretty slow going with all the colour changes but well worth if for the detail. I've decided to go down the chart instead of across as I just can't face another page of confetti yellow/browns.  So the next colour coming up is a beautiful lavender shade on the tree. 

As you can see I have a ways to go yet. But I can't wait till I reach the fairies! 

I'll be continuing with this one till the next GG or at least till I finish the challenge, the deadline coincidentally is Oct 15th so just in time for GG SAL. 

Those of you lucky enough LOL to be friends with me on fb know that I have recently overhauled the craft room. Thanks to Rai Rai's group craft storage ideas, I was inspired to tackle this problem.

I have now got a clear and workable craft room. I even found the natural colour of my carpet and my lost Crafty Diamond Tiara which I used to wear when I was stitching. So win win all around. 

Now I don't have to pull everything out when I need something as I have logged and tagged everything on my X-stitch app. It took 3 full days but it's done now. Woo Hoo!!!!

Hopefully this will mean more wips progress as that's one job that I don't need to worry about.

Off to check everyone's progress now. 

Take care of yourselves and if you have a choice, choose happiness.

Love you
