Gifted Gorgeousness SAL

For a while now, I have seen blog posts called Gifted Gorgeousness. It is a SAL that people can join to show their progress or finishes on cross stitch designs, threads, or fabrics that were gifted to them OR their finished projects that they have given to others. It is run by Jo, of Serendipitous Stitching, if you want to check it out! Anyway, I joined in and this is going to be my first post!

Justine recently won my Giveaway, but then I got sick again with pneumonia. Slowed things down... Plus the meds were very strong, and caused me to have other problems, and I am still taking meds and recovering from those side effects! So, no stitching of late, and no trip to the post office until yesterday! I asked Justine if I could post about the gift BEFORE she received it, because I really wanted to get my first GG post in! She agreed, so here we go!

It is a Lizzie Kate design, called Live Simply, that I made into a cube finish. Stitched on a piece of yellow overdyed fabric from R&R Reproductions that I have had in my stash (it is brighter than this picture), with nice bright threads so it will pop! And I dyed the lace trim to coordinate with the colors on the fabric AND the stitching! I hope she likes it...

That is all for now... I have an exchange piece I will hopefully finish soon, plus I was working on a Christmas piece before all this... so I promise next post will have more to share than one project!

Thanks for visiting!
