The March Gifted Gorgeousness SAL

Hi folks! I'm typing this up as my son naps beside me (he absolutely refuses to nap in his crib - has to be our bed or his car seat!) and a dust storm rages outside. Very bizarre weather. We went out for a walk earlier and it was quite hot but insanely windy. And now this!

Anyway, time for the March Gifted Gorgeousness SAL check-in. This is the brain-child of Jo from Serendipitous Stitching. 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. I'm a day late, I know, but I've had a really busy week! My parents were here for a few days, so they got all the energy and attention that my son wasn't already monopolizing!

Last month I started Let it Snow, from Hands On Design. This was a gift from Emma of Emma's Bloglet during our last exchange. Here's my progress this month:


I finished the two half snowflakes on either side of the text and got some stitching done on the border. Those of you who know me well know that borders bore me to tears, so I like to do them in small doses.


I keep trying to get a decent photo so you can really see the color changes in the Hydrangea floss I'm using, but I'm not sure I've achieved it. It's really so pretty!

All right, this post has literally taken me all day to write. I took the pictures twelve hours ago! The baby's in bed, so I've finally managed to take a shower, and now I'm going to veg in front of the TV until my eyes cross. Yay!

Lots of love,

Thanks for taking part in GG this month, even though you've been very busy socialising!
Great work on the chalk design, those colours are so hard to capture.

Lovely update on your stitching. Your floss name sounds so pretty, I'm sure it must look fantastic in real.

While I'm not fond of the sentiment right now, it's a lovely design. : ) And Hydrangea is such a wonderful name for a floss - makes me feel warmer just thinking about it.
