Can you believe we're halfway through May again? Me neither! I have been busy, though, and have quite a few things to show for this month's Gifted Gorgeousness check in.
First of, a finished the Ambarussa moebius loop in blue. I reallyl ike how it turned out . it's just as soft and pretty as the red one, but thanks to the new 'cast on' I tried out, it's stretchy all the way through and even more comfortable. I think I'll need to make another one for Felix sonn as well, but this one is a very late Christmas present for a good friend.
I also finished the crocodile blanket doll! It only took me ages, seeing how I already finished the head and body by late March, but Ambarussa got in the way and vacation time and now it's all done. I am very pleased with how it turned out and enjoyed working with the yarn too (Scheepjes Stone Washed - mostly cotton with some artifical fibres for effect).
I already started the second animal from the same book - this one is a hippo. I already finished the head and ears and I'm now working on the body, and I think if I stick to it, I might even finish it next week! Those two are gifts for the grandchildren of a friend of my grandma, but I think I'll have to make more from the book too, they are all really cute and fun.
And last but not least, I've been working more on my Mermaid...I fully finished the cross stitch on the upper right page, only need to fill in the border to do the same for the upper left, and I worked on her tail too! Her butt is sitting smack on the intersection of all four pages, so there was a lot of page-juggling, but I think I managed it without any noticeable mistakes.
