It seems that everything is delayed a little this month...it's okay, from time to time I find myself in a slump of 'work' (work-work, blog-work, stitchy work, you name it) piling up around me and I have to claw myself out of it again by slowly tackling one thing after another. It seem that lockdown and persisting work from home time have had such an effect on my lately (after having a pretty positive effect on my motivation for the first couple weeks or so!), but I'm feeling better and slowly working my way through everything that fell to the wayside.
So! For a somewhat late Gifted Gorgeousness, hosted by the wonderful Jo, I have to things to show you today. One, of course, is The Mermaid, that I have just recently shown you, but I'm so very proud of her don't mind showing her again:
I stitched her for my Dad's 60th birthday last July. At least I finished before his 61st! I'm currently looking at framing options for her and found a few that I like. They are all quite expensive, but honestly, she deserves a fancy frame, doesn't she?
The other one is Magical's bookmark of the month. For May, she designed a gorgeous rainbow pattern on black fabric that I so enjoyed stitching! I haven't finished-finished it yet, but have something fun planned that I hope will work out. More on this one soon!
I'm stitching these bookmarks so I'll have a nice collection of emergency gifts and stocking fillers by Christmas, which is why it qualifies! I also had a couple new starts that technically qualify (one is a gift and one was a kit bought from a voucher I got for my birthday), but both have so little to show yet that I'll be saving them for next month.
