Gifted Gorgeousness SAL November

Hi stunners!!!

I'm really really really late with this one, sorry about that. I have a new start (what a surprise LOL) which is a gift for my girlfriend whose doggie April went blind literally overnight. She is a Silky Terrier and looks exactly like this chart ,as her mummy Janine always has a bow in her hair. I won't be stitching the prayer as she totally doesn't have a "firm" hand. This doggie was spoilt rotten even before she became blind.  But I'll make something up to put on it, that's a tad more relevant. 

I'm stitching it on 18ct Pink Swirl sparkly fabby from Sew it All Australia. You can just make out the eye. It's weird for me to stitch like this, without gridding and parking, just following the colours in an area, but I kinda like it too. 

And an update for SS Max Colours Butterfly Ball, which was a RAK chart from my dazzling friend Nina. I finished page 18, finally. Woo Hoo. Wickedly mad crazy confetti but I loved it.

And I joined a facebook Group called "The Ultimate Cross Stitch Group" as one of my friends told me that they had lots of challenges. And I stitch so much more when involved in challenges and events. It's the stitching athlete in me ha ha. So I managed a page finish and I am two thirds of the way through my new start which I will show you next post....but the best thing is I received 4 awards and a merit badge. So cool! If you guys are on fb, it's a great group and they are super duper nice there. 

That's all stunners. Hope you are all doing really well and that life is magical.

Take care.

P.S. Jo - Serendipitous Stitching if you read this post can you add the linky thingy. I can't get it to work. That is if the linky thingy hasn't closed. Sorry I'm so late. Thanks stunner!
