January Gifted Gorgeousness

It's finally time for our first Gifted Gorgeousness update! This SAL is being hosted by the lovely Jo at Serendipitous Stitching.

For those who haven't joined or want to know all the little details about this wonderful SAL, check it out here! I'll give you a basic overview...

We're all stitching pieces that have either been gifted to us (all or in part) or are being stitched as gifts for someone else. It's a wonderful way to get through some of those goals we've all set out to complete this year!

My original plan was to start this SAL off with Fantasia, however for those of you that have been following my conundrums, this wasn't really a possibility. So instead I've decided to work on Hummingbird Welcome. This piece was gifted to me (3/4 of the way completed) by my Grandmother about 4 or so years ago. I've been focusing on the backstitching and getting the details filled in so I can FINALLY frame it.

This is the progress so far. Both hummingbirds are finished and I've begun working on the purple flowers near the top of the piece, you may have to click on the photo to see it closer. I'm hoping to have this one completed by May so I can have it framed for my birthday!!

Please be sure to check out all the other wonderful stitchers progress by checking out the January Link-up Post here.

I'll be back next month with, hopefully, some more progress on this beauty and a start on Fantasia!
