Come visit with me as I stitch and craft my way from one Christmas to the next - I like to have Christmas projects close by me all year. I have a particular fondness for Santas and Angels. If you have the time, leave a comment so I know you've visited.

Gifted Gorgeousness Report for October

I have made good progress in the past month.  I have finished all my 2016 Christmas ornaments (all destined to be Christmas gifts), and I have made a start on another gift - a name sampler for a new family member - a baby boy born in New York to Aussie parents.  I'm half-way through baby's name. Here's my progress so far:

Stitched with 2 strands of floss over 1 on 20 count blue fabric.  
The charts are from Allura's Australian Alphabet. I used the DMC conversion,
 but changed the letter colours, as I wanted all the letters to be the same colour. 
I added the name of the fauna.

I haven't repeated the ornie photos here, as they are very close - in my previous post.

Great new start, Elfie. And a very interesting alphabet that I have never seen before.

It's an Aussie classic, Brigitte. I've had my copy of the book it's in for well over 25 yrs but it's the first time I have stitched any of the letters.

The alphabets look so beautiful.
Did you say you have finished ornaments for 2016 or 2015? Wow you are fast.

Lynne Frankham said...

I could have said anything, but I meant 2015!

Stitching Noni said...

Oh my goodness I have that book.... and I have never stitched a thing from it!!!
You are not going to believe me but I actually pulled it off my bookcase in the craft room on Sunday and looked through it for something to stitch.... how strange is this for me to now come to your blog today and see that you stitching from it! (I think I have had the book for at least 25 years as well!!)
Can't wait to see Jude's gift all finished :o)
Hugs xx
