The October Gifted Gorgeousness SAL and a Little Turtle

Well, it's October 15th, so it's time for a Gifted Gorgeousness SAL update! This is Jo from Serendipitous Stitching's baby - we stitch on something that's been gifted to us through exchanges or giveaways, whether a pattern, kit, fabric, floss, whatever, and post on the 15th of the month (because it's 2015).

For the last few months I've been working on Prairie Schooler's Two By Two, gifted to me last year in an exchange with Emma from Emma's Bloglet (you can see my last update here). This is what it looks like now:


I'm at 3200 stitches now. Yep, you guessed it - I'm still on the hull! It's a really great design to stitch, especially if you're just watching TV, but the problem is that it's got these long, long, long lines of plain colors, so it gets a little boring.


I've also been getting some serious stitching done on the baby sampler:


We have a turtle! He's such a little cutie. I've finished his frame, the lion's frame, and stitched on the blue middle frame too.


That's all I've got today! I'll be back on Sunday for my usual update post.

Lots of love,

Thanks for taking part in GG this month. Great progress on the Ark, even if it is rather repetitive, not as bad as borders though LOL.

Definitely the right decision not to stitch the background on the baby sampler, I hadn't even noticed the cute little turtle!

Hi Sarah long time no speak! I hope you are ok, your stitching is looking wonderful as ever :) This baby sampler has been on my wish list for a long time so I will look forward to seeing this grow! xx

With this ark it's just the same as with houses - they rae boring to stitch because of all the walls and windows but the result is always so nice.
