January 2017 GG

Hello Everyone,

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.



  1. Both pieces look already great.

  2. Thanks for taking part in GG this year. Nice to have one project from each category too! The kingfisher looks rather interesting, I shall enjoy seeing that one grow this year.

  3. Both your projects are lovely. I specially like the Kingfisher.

  4. Both your activities are stunning. I extraordinarily like the Kingfisher... a debt of gratitude is in order for share

  5. Both projects look good.....looking forward to seeing your progress on both!
