Gifted Gorgeousness February

Hallo dear friends and followers,

I have to admit that I missed posting on the 15th because of carnival celebrations and recovering from them... LOL! Now everything is back to normal again. Not that carnival is such an extremely big issue here around Vienna, but there are some parties to attend, some people to meet and having lots of fun.

I have stitched a lot lately, but sadly not much on my Gifted Gorgeousness project, my stitching time was spent working on an exchange piece I cannot show yet and finishing a stitched tablecloth for a work colleague of mine. She started it, made some mistakes and then lost interest. As the piece is meant to be a birthday present for a friend of hers, she asked me to finish it for her.

Well, but I made some progress around the lettering on my coffee piece, believe me, this confetti stitching drives me nearly nuts. I am happy to have made any progress at all and will pick this WIP up next week again. So hopefully next month I will be able to show you some major progress. :-)

Here is a closeup of the section I am working on at the moment:

Thank you for stopping by and have a lovely week!


  1. Thanks for taking part in GG this month. You have a great excuse for being late, I would love to visit Vienna while the carnival is on. I bet you had an amazing time.

  2. Confetti stitching makes me want to give up on a project so I really admire your determination to continue! I hope you are now all recovered from the celebrations! :)

  3. Ich kann gut verstehen, dass all die Konfetti-Stickerei nicht gerade motivationsfördernd ist, aber es hilft ja nichts. Besser man nimmt das Teil immer wieder vor und stickt daran, so wie du es gemacht hast - irgendwann wird's fertig werden. Mich motiviert es immer, wenn ich das fertige Teil auf dem Bild anschaue, oder wenn ich so etwas ganz Kleines dazwischen sticke.
