May Gifted Gorgeousness

I'm a few days late but here is my May Gifted Gorgeousness check in. The idea for this fun blog SAL is to share things we are either stitching as a gift or things we have received as a gift. Stop over at Jo's blog to see who has joined in this month.

I looked back on what I've stitched on since April 15th and I'm going to have to use a shoehorn this month. The only thing I've stitched that fits this category is the Spring Bell Pull. The reason it fits is I won the money to pay for all 4 seasons from doing online surveys. 

Here is what Spring will look like...
The set I'm doing is from the Stoney Creek Magazine. I think they are releasing them as leaflets now too but I haven't checked to see if they are exactly the same or not. The fabric, threads, and buttons were gifts from my winnings. I really would like to finish this one off this year so I can get a start on another season. This was the least favorite of the 4 seasons I figured I better get it out of the way first. Here is where I am as of May 11th on the N block...
 Here is my last WIP picture of the whole piece before I made the progress on N...
By the way I've also been putting a few days this week into Ocean in a Bottle. I will have an update on that Monday. We are heading down to the cabin tomorrow for another weekend of progress. It's IHSW (International Hermit Stitch Weekend) too. Will you please put in some X's for me. Once we get the work done I will be able to get a stitching area setup but not yet. Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. Great stitching, it's going to be lovely

  2. Wow! That is just looking so wonderful, Katie! Each letter is like a mini-finish :)

  3. Thanks for taking part in GG this month with your tenuous shoehorn! Still a very pretty design.

  4. I love this design! Looking forward to seeing your progress on the ocean in a bottle design, that's another pretty one!

  5. Spring will definitely look gorgeous in the end!AriadnefromGreece!
