Somehow, when I wasn't looking, December 15th crept up on me. It's the last Gifted Gorgeousness SAL update of the year, folks! 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:
This is at 4000 stitches now. Finally, after months and months of stitching, I'm done with the hull of the ship! Happy dancing here (well, as much as I can with my giant tummy). I've stitched the two peace doves and started on the waves underneath the ship. So close to a finish now!
I'm stitching up a storm on the baby sampler too. I'm officially 39 weeks along as of today, so it's really just a matter of time before I pop. So this is what it looked like first:
Then it looked like this:
And now it looks like this:
I've finished stitching the sun and all the leaves. I've just got to finish the monkey and his brown frame now. I didn't like how they kept charting the animals' eyes blue, so I changed them all to brown (except the elephant, who's blue all over so it didn't look weird). Once I'm done with the stitching I still have all the backstitching to do, but it's really coming along and I should be able to finish soon!
