Gifted Gorgeousness SAL.....

Hello wonderful happy smiley friends....

Yes I am here at last joining in on the GG SAL, I would of loved to of joined in on many others but unfortunately all I have been doing this year is going in and out of hospital :(

I do have a quick link in my margin, right under Han... If you want to join in on the fun!!

I would like to share an awesome design that I am now finally stitching, thanks to Jo who gifted this to me way back at the start of the year!! 

Now everyone knows I adore sheep... I did not actually see this when it came out, see I was in hospital at the time!! Jo very kindly gifted it to me, and I was over the moon!  I am finally getting around to stitching it...

It's called " Winter Friends " designed by The Snowflower Diaries.... I am stitching it on 14 count khaki Aida using DMC threads.

Oh it's adorable...

Such a cute sheep!!.... 

Thank you dear Jo, on with the stitching!! 

I have also been making some hexies too, for a little project I am making up....

The fabrics I chose from my stash...

My work tray... Ha ha easier when it's all together...

And the hexies... 



I am stitching them all by hand, and Oooh it's fun!!  Also sore on the fingers!! So I am living doing a few cross stitch projects in between. 

So big smiles to you all..... Happy stitching / creating to you all :)
