Today is the first check-in of the year for Jo's Gifted Gorgeousness. Pop over to her blog to see the other gift-related projects worked on this month. I have two projects to show today; one is a gift from Lucy and the other is a gift for my parents.
The Coastal view is a dimensions kit and has been my travel piece for the last month. I have managed to finish two of the umbrellas and part of the pink building, but have not done any of the backstitching. I am not sure if I am going to leave it till the end of each page or when I finish a section as it really adds to the piece.
I started the Kingfisher piece last year and have completed the first of five pages. This page is mostly water, with a little bit of reeds in the bottom right (not stitched yet) and the beak of the native symbol. I am really enjoying the colours in this one and will finish the page in the next week.
Hope everyone has had a good start to the year and is getting lots of stitching done.
