Gifted Gorgeousness SAL - November

And here we go again, after being super in time for WIPocalypse this month (yay me), I am a day late for the GGSAL (boooh me).
But at least I am still on my way to post every month for this SAL, just one more post in December and then I can be proud of myself for sticking to this ;-)
If you are interested in the SAL and want to see what everybody else did this month, just pay a visit to Jo, who is hosting this SAL.

So here we go!

First up is my work on the Dog bookshelf piece. I went from here:
To here:
 And it's finished!!! Yay, finally! There was an awful lot of confetti in that funny decoration stuff on top, but I made it (though it kicked me off my weekly schedule of doing 520 stitches per week...). The thing still needs a bath and then it can go on it's way soon. To be honest, I was quite sick of it in the end, I really spent a lot of time on it and after all the confetti, the black was easy but boring to stitch.

I also picked up one more project, not Middle Earth though. That will surely be back next month!
I picked up the Candy Cane Santa stocking I'm stitching for my boyfriend and I went from here:
To here:
Doesn't he look creepy, peering over my Qsnap like that? :D It's really fun to work on him again, I will try and fit in half an hour or so a few times a week. No chance to get him done by Christmas, but there is also Christmas in 2017 (and 2018, 2019... lol).

Anyway, that's all I got for this month.

Happy stitching :)

  5. Congrats on finishing your doggie! He is so cute. Santa looks surprised you picked him to work on. Now he'll be keeping an eye on you while you stitch. :)

  6. Yay on finishing doggie bookmark. I had to laugh we all sometimes complain about the confetti and then we complain about how boring block stitching is. Well I do anyway. I love Santa peeping over the Q-snap, it looks like he is spying on you. Checking to see if you're naughty or nice... :D
