FOTM SAL May update and some cooking

Image
Here is my entry for Flower of the Month SAL hosted by Alyssa .


I have not been able to stitch much of this as my current target is to finish Sunflower bouquet for my colleague who is going to retire soon. As advised by my stitchy friends, I am now using two strands for stitching for the flower series. But I didn't have the courage to frog what I had already stitched using 3...do you think the difference is too obvious or looks ugly?

In other news, I'm happy to tell that I have attended two meet ups of a group of knitters in past 2 weeks.
Don't be surprised...I don't knit but this is result of my desperate attempts to a have a group of cross stitchers. I have been trying really hard since last 1 year to gather or meet people interested in any type of needle work here in Kuwait. Sadly, nothing worked ..so I  signed up on Raverly and joined the local ravelry group.
The ladies in the group have been kind enough to absorb me and we had fun in the last two meetings. While…

May TUSAL Update

Its time for TUSAL check-in for the month.

My ORT jar is growing as is the stitchy portion of my Pie Chart.
This is because I have been able to stitch almost everyday this month even if its 15 stitches in a day.


Gifted Gorgeousness SAL May update and some ramblings

Image
GG SAL is by far my favourite SAL ... Every month, I eagerly wait for Jo's link up post.
I love looking at what stitchers are working on: gifts they are making or gifts they got.

My stitching priorities have changed in last few days and there is a reshuffle in the gifting ideas.
As I mentioned in my first GG post, my goal this year was to stitch 3 pieces for my college friends.
Seems like I'm not gonna meet them this year...so the pieces which I were stitching for them will now be gifted to one of my work friends (whom I showed the piece and she liked it, not shown in this post) and a colleague.

Below is the piece which I'm stitching for my colleague now, as a thank you gift for being a perfect host in Windsor (I know my London post is still pending). He will be retiring in July and will be re modeling his house after that. I think this will look good as a wall piece in his house.

I started stitching this piece on 21st Nov 2014 but had difficulty reading the colored chart…

Thank you Khristine!
