Welcome to the Gifted Gorgeousness link-up post! The link-up date will continue to be the 15th of each month but I will keep the linky open until the end of each month so you have plenty of time to join in.
The format remains EXACTLY the same as last year so I'm sure you are all aware of what can be included - gifts to and from you; charts, fabric or threads; shoe-horns welcome!
It's currently 9am in England and I'm helping out at school this morning then trying to finish the beading on Nora Corbett's E Fairy so I'm just posting the link-up part now and will come back this evening and edit it, hopefully with lots of blingy photos of Ms E!
7pm - Welcome back! It has been a most productive day and the third Alphabet Fairy is completed. Here she is with her sisters:
Here are some close-ups:
I stitched her pretty much as charted with all the recommended CC threads. Once again I changed the backstitch to 356 for her skin and also 3371 for the swirls. The original chart has an extra border around three sides but, as with C, I decided she didn't need that extra border.
What do you do when you have been stitching fairly OAAT on Fairies for the last three months? Pick up another one!
Elizabeth Shepherd (a gift from Nicola):
The Strawberry Sampler you can see further down (a gift from Lee Under The Mountain).
Mulberry by Shepherd's Bush (a gift from either Heather or Laura! Both of them sent me a selection of the SB mini-samplers and I'm not sure who sent which now):
Here is the place for you to link up so we can see what Gifted Gorgeousness you have been stitching so far this year. Please use your name or your blog name in the field NOT the words "March Update" so I can easily see who has linked up this month.
