Gifted Gorgeousness SAL October

And it's time for the GGSAL update again - no Middle Earth this month (feels weird) :D This hasn't happened since March! And oh well, in March and February I was stitching the Middle Earth Map for Chelle, so that's basically a ME update :D And I am quite sure that I will work on ME for next months update.

Anyway, I still have two projects I worked on.
First up is my Wolf Kiss by Dimensions, which didn't get a lot of love this year, so I added a few stitches. it went from here (back in April):

To here:
It's not much, but it's something. The she wolfs head on the first page is as good as done and the other wolfs ear is coming along now. I think I should just try picking this up more often for a day or two, after all it does stitch up fast.

Ok the next I got is my dog bookshelf piece, I am flying along with that one. I am still doing 520 stitches per week, this adds up! I went from here:
To here:
Unfortunately, the writing is quite hard to read. I have 40 rows left, so I will try and finish this for next months update! I will also try and do some work on my Christmas Stocking, it has seen little love lately.... But my focus will be on the dog bookshelf, it's so close to being done.

Apart from that, I am making plans for 2017, I think I will really give a rotation a try (at least so I am working on all my projects for once). The Christmas Stocking will be a focus piece that's out all month to get a few stitches then and again, so I hope to show it to you more often and get some decent progress into it. I also decided to definitely start In the Moonlight for the GGSAL, I am not sure about when... I thought about making this my new year start, but then I usually start a Haed on January 1st (already feels like a tradition to me) and since I got another material package I will start another Haed in 2017. So In the Moonlight might move to March. But I am not decided yet.

Ok, that's all I have for this month. If you want to see the other entries for October, take a look over here. The SAL is hosted by Jo and her blog is always worth a visit ;-)

Happy stitching!

  1. Great progress on both of these WIPS. I'm stitching a Dimensions snow tiger at the moment and really love it - your wolves might have to be added to my list!
    I love reading about stitching plans - yours for 2017 sound achievable. Good luck!

  2. Thanks for taking part in GG this month. The wolves are looking good as is the book. Personally I would chart the words on graph paper so they are legible. The eye is better than the computer for lettering!

  4. Wolf kiss is filling in nicely, and yes those 520 stitches do add up. Great job. I can't wait to see what you have planned for your HAED 2017 new start. Good luck with creating a rotation. I personally enjoy them.
