Gifted Gorgeousness SAL - November

Oh my, it's already the middle of November, where did this year go? It's only 5 weeks until Christmas and 6 weeks to the end of the year. I feel like I still have tons I want to do this year, so many books I wanted to read in autumn and now it's winter, so many projects I still want to work on or on which I haven't met my goal this year... I usually start organizing my presents for Christmas quite early, I normally make a list in November and pick up most things at the end of November and then I am done with my shopping in early December. But this year I haven't really planned anything so far (well I have two books on my list that I want to give to my mum - she is always "easy" because she reads a lot, but usually she doesn't buy hardcovers because cost twice as much, so I always pick up one or two hardcovers for her).
But back to stitching! I worked on one project for this GG SAL and - as almost every month - it's my Map of Middle Earth. I went from here:
To here:
So I finished the column from last month and added another columns . Middle Earth now entered the Iron-H, lol. Since I want to do 2 more columns to meet my yearly goal of 12 000 stitches, I am keeping this on my frame for a few more days, I want to do at least 500 more stitches before I put it away until the middle of December. I also have that Santa Stocking lying around somewhere, so it would be nice to pick that up as well for Christmas ;-)

I am directly heading off to my frame again, Middle Earth is calling and I can't wait to get back to my current audio book, which is "The Institute" by Steven King. I am listening to the German translation because it's narrated by David Nathan and I absolutely love him! So all I have left to do is point you towards this months link-up, so you can take a look a how everybody else did this month.

Happy stitching =)


  1. Great progress this month. Good luck with the Christmas shopping - there's still plenty of time!

  2. Oh I totally agree - wherever has this year gone? There's so much still do to! I guess there's always next year, but still...
    Great stitching!

  3. Thanks for taking part in GG this month with my favourite design!
    I have actually started my Christmas shopping - my sister is coming home early so I had to get her gift this week.

  4. Your map is looking so good! Great progress. I read The Institute a while ago and really enjoyed it. It reminded me a lot of Firestarter, which I also really liked. Stephen King is definitely one of my favorite authors. Happy stitching!

  5. Great progress on your map! I can’t believe how fast this year is going! I’ve hardly thought of Christmas so far, except I do have a couple of Christmas cross stitch projects to start. I’ve finally finished my GG post and now it’s time to think of Christmas shopping!
