Wow, we've made it halfway through the year already! 2016 is just flying by in a whirl of diapers and long sleepless nights. Somehow it's the 15th of June, which means it's time for the Gifted Gorgeousness SAL, 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.
For most of last year and this year, I was stitching on Prairie Schooler's Two By Two (you can see my last update post here). But I needed a new project, so I went digging through my stash. I've had to take out my shoehorn a bit! Last year my father saved himself a headache: he gave me money on my birthday and told me to buy whatever I wanted for myself. So I went on a stashing mission and bought a few things, including Plum Street Sampler's Party Tarts. This was technically a gift, so technically it fits right in with GG!
I'm stitching these with the recommended GAST colors. I think this project is appropriate, considering the elections coming up later this year. I'm hoping to get both tarts done by then - wish me luck!
I've also got my usual snail's-pace update on the Little Sheep Virtues SAL:
This is Peace at 1400 stitches. All I've done is work on the border. There's only a tiny bit left, plus the body of the sheep, and then I'm done! Hopefully this will be a finish next week.
The first picture is more true to the color of the fabric. This keeps happening with my camera - it washes out all the colors. Oh well!
Lots of love,
