August Gifted Gorgeousness

 It's time for my favourite SAL, The Gifted Gorgeousness, hosted by my favourite SAL hostess, Jo! And once again, I have a nice selection of projects to show! So let's dive right into it. 

My main gift project is - and will remain for some time - the Zoe Box, which I'm stitching for two friends's wedding. I just uploaded a post about my latest progress in total, so here I will just repeat the picture of the last section I finished - the sides of the box are all done now (and yes, I know these critters are upside down - they are supposed to be!):

I am also SALing Morning Meadow, I pattern I one in a giveaway a while back, with Jo. This is my progress 7 weeks in - I have two more bands to stitch this week, then beads, and then I will try to make a dedicated post about the sampler as a whole! Probably should start thinking about how to finish-finish it...

Another one I already showed you, but I am stitching Magical's Bookmarks of the Month as emergency gifts, so those qualify! And the July one (August one is on the list for next week) was a real pretty one, too:

I just remembered - another repeat picture, but I finished these crochet-emojis from a kit my brother in law gave me for Christmas a couple of years ago (when he wasn't my BIL yet). I have since added some loops and they are now making Felix' drumset a little more fun to look at ;) 

And of course, after these were done, I had to start another crochet project - another gift for a baby, or rather for the big sister of a baby. Our neighbors had a baby boy in July, and I will start his gift in a bit, but I'm also making a horse ragdoll for his big sister who loves horses:

I finished the head and I thought I had almost finished the body, but then I discovered a mistake I made (and repeated) for the last couple of rounds so now my count is totally off...so I spent some time today working backwards and have about three more rounds to undo before I can make progress again! Hopefully, I'll get that done and start working on the legs next week.

That is so sweet of you to make the big sister a gift, too. So often they are forgotten in the excitement of a new baby. Love the fun crocheted emojis :) And nice progress on all of your gifts, Leonore. Hope you have a wonderful week ahead ♥

THanks for taking part in GG this month, and for the compliments too!
Your Morning Meadow is looking lovely, the Spruce colour is beautiful. Your version is a little bit more subtle than mine. Mine is quite bold and my colour choices are darker. It is fun to see the differences.
Nice start on the horseless head too!

Lovely gifts, both received and to be given, although I do feel sorry for the horse not having a body yet! :)
