I hope you had a good start to the new year . It's time for first GG update of the year. What's GG you ask?
GG or Gifted Gorgeousness SAL is Jo's baby where we show what gift stitching we have been doing. These can be gifts received in form of patterns,kits,floss and fabric or gifts we make for others.
Here are the gifts I received last month and failed to show you.
I visited my family in India last month and somebody missed me.😁
Look what DH made me , a free hand embroidery piece . No need to say I love it ! I asked him how he made it and he showed me the steps :drawing the pattern, fitting it in the frame size. I'm impressed by the talent my man possesses.My late father in law used to embroider and I have seen some of the master pieces he has created. DH has been thinking of continuing with the craft his father did since a while, sorry I don't know what that embroidery is called in English.
I received a beautiful pin cushion with my initial from a fellow Indian crafter ,an extra she added as a thank you for placing an order.
Isn't this precious, infact too pretty to use. I will display this in my showcase instead.
Another new year gift from DH, some cuddly yarn and fabric
He also bought me boxes to store my floss. Here is a picture of how all my floss away bags perfectly fit in these boxes.
I have been stitching the Candamar piece for my bestie and here is how it looks now. Even though this piece is a PITA , I love stitching this one.
I will end this post with a picture of the first sunset of year 2017, which I clicked while on the way to desert camp in Lahbab desert, Dubai.
