June Gifted Gorgeousness

Oh boy, I'm seems to become a pattern that I want to 'just finish one more thing' before making these posts, but this time I just felt ma attention slipping away from my original plan and on to other things, so I guess it'll just have to wait until next month. I have enough gift-related projects to show as it is, anyways!

For one, I did stitch to smalls for birthday cards. You've already seen the little bunny, but I also stitched a little otter (it's a chart from Lesley Teare and I think it was released on the Crossstitch for Charity facebook group).

Then I finished and finished-finished the blanky Panda for a friend's friend's daughter. I haven't finish-finished the Hippo yet as the Panda actually had to be done earlier, but I hope to get to that soon (I just don't enjoy the sewing together part!).

My main project is, of course, still the Mermaid. it's till progressing slowly and it's now clear that I won't be making the deadline of my dad's birthday party (which would have been July 6th), but I'm sure he'll still like her with a 'little' delay. Anyways, I still have a fair bit to go, but it feels like I'm slowly closing in on the page finish of page 3.

Despite not having finished the Mermaid yet, I still had a new start. After my dad, my mum, too, is turning 60 (next year in April), and I wanted to get a headstart on her present - a Mirabilia, and, even though it's my first one, it should go a lot faster than a TW! I'm talking about Lady Justice, and I managed a few stitches to start her this week. Lots of pretty greens to finish that skirt!

I also have a few more knitting/crochet projects in the pipeline, the first of which I'm hoping too start tonight sooo hopefully I'll have more to show next month (and hopefully I'll be more on time, then, as well!).

I can't wait to see the finished mermaid, it looks gorgeous so far! You're doing a great job with it.

Great projects! The panda is very sweet and the mermaid is coming along.

Thank you :) It's still fun to work on, but I wouldn't mind finishing her soon.

Lovely gifts in progress there; I'm sure your parents won't mind if they're a little late. :)

Thanks for taking part in GG this month. You do look like you're making great progress on the Mermaid. I am sure the Mira will be quicker to stitch, no background and border for a start!

You certainly know how to keep busy! I think the Mermaid will be well worth the wait. I'm looking forward to seeing Lady Justice come together for your Mom.
