March Gifted Gorgeousness

Just a few days late, here's my March post for Gifted Gorgeousness, the stitch along that's all about gifted and gift projects. But before I launch right into my progress shots, let me just tell you how very thankful I am for everyone who reads and/or comments on my blog. Sometime last weekend I reached 10.000 page views, and that number means a lot to me! Coindicently, the next post will also by #100, so I'll have to think of something special for that.

Okay, on to business! Like always, most of my projects fit the discription (some of the supplies were gifted to me, or the finished project is intended to be a gift) - even my current main project, Dark Force, since I won the pattern in a stitching contest, and I was told that would count as well. So let's start with my progress here, I finished another column, of course, and even a bit of overlap to the next one - and, exciting exciting, that shiny thing in the lower right is the first bit of Vader's helmet!


Then I started and finished two gifts for my grandma this month; to lovely little guinea pig kits by RTO: Smart Gosh and Rodent Bonn.


I also started the Things Unseen Mystery Sampler by Lizzie*Kate - the whole kit was a christmas gift from my boyfriend, and I'm totally in love with it. I'll try to only stitch small patches though, so it will last a while longer. AND I started the next page of Bothy Thread's Cut Thru' Cottage, which is supposed to be a house warming gift for Felix' sister and her boyfriend when it's done.



I also did some knitting on BSJ, which is also going to be a gift, and it's technically finished  I'm just too lazy to finish-finish it, but I hope to have a finished picture by the weekend.

So that's it for stitching news, and everything else will have to wait for a later point, I'm still not feeling really well again and trying not to be away from the couch for too long in the evenings...or maybe I'm just lazy ;) Anyway, catch you later!

  1. What a lot of gorgeous gifting! I love Dark Force. How exciting to see Vader appearing! Your guinea pigs are super cute and your boyfriend is definitely a keeper if he buys you stash!

    1. Thank you! He is a keeper, even without the stash buying part, and he's starting to learn how easy it can be to make me happy by just buying me stitchy stuff ^_^

  5. Thanks for taking part in GG this month. I really love the blues in Dark Force and the guineas are so cute. My son has a cuddly guinea pig toy which I have to kiss good night to!

    1. Guinea pigs are awesome! Strangle enough, those are the only decent cross stitch patterns I found of them...
