Gifted Gorgeousness SAL - January

Well, it looks like the Gifted Gorgeousness SAL is continued in 2016 =)
I didn't manage to post for this every month in 2015, so I am trying again for 2016 ;-) My pile of projects suitable for the SAL has grown somewhat.
I will surely continue working on my Map of Middle Earth (on which I want to do 12000 stitches this year) and my Wolf Kiss, but this months post introduces a new start.

I started a stocking for my boyfriend. It's a kit called "Candy Cane Santa Stocking" from the Dimensions Gold Collection. I showed it a few posts ago:

The plan is to get this finished in time for Christmas and I think I can do it.
This is where I am so far, I started it just a few days ago and it stitches up fairly quickly:
It's a good part of Santas beard so far and I hope that I will be able to show you his face next month.
This is worked on 16ct Aida with multiple strands of floss, so I am using my new laying tool on this. I really enjoy working with the laying tool, I think I found a good rhythm and the stitches are super even, which make the coverage real nice.

If you want to see the other peoples work for this SAL, take a look over here and if you want to participate, you can do it here.

I'll be back in a few days with an update on Wolf Variant and the current challenge form the Haed group on Facebook.

Happy Stitching =)

  4. Thanks for taking part in GG this month and good luck with linking up every month!
    I love Middle Earth so I'm pleased you'll be stitching on that one this year. The stockings are great projects too and you have a real deadline on those so that will be fun to watch.
