Gifted Gorgeousness -- May edition

I missed WIPocalyse this month but got lots done on my Gifted Gorgeousness SAL.  I love the pastels, the whimsical flowers and all the little butterflies in this project. 


I'm adding a project to this SAL.  It is itself a SAL from the Sampler Life yahoo and Facebook group.  It's a Gifted Gorgeousness because each square is a gifted freebie from the most wonderful designers.  The first square on my project is from Faby Reilly, the second from Jane Hubble.

Thank you, ladies!

Magic broom on the fritz

Back in January I stitched my witch for the Halloween ornament SAL and then sadly set her aside until May (pumpkin month).  But as soon as May started, I immediately picked Fright Flight back up to finish this cute project.

I absolutely love the humor in this pattern.   How can you not smile at this little witch and her alternate ride?

Late for almost everything in April :(

Unfortunately, my stitching schedule went out the window for April.  My dad was in the hospital for a few weeks so the month was mostly spent in the car driving back and forth to visit him.  He's out now so things should return to normal.

Anyways, for April's WIPocalypse I didn't get as much done as I planned.  Only 2 projects received any attention.  The tulip sampler has one more square finished:

And the great pumpkin conspiracy has another pumpkin and some blue zigzags:

For the Gifted Gorgeousness SAL I finished Nevermore (which is a birthday present for a friend):

For the Halloween ornie SAL (this month's subject being tombstones) I took pieces of Nevermore for my ornament:

And then I started a new project that the Sampler Life group is stitching.  I love this square from Faby Reilly:
Just what I need .... another project ;)
And last but not least, for the final days of April, I decided to pick up Primitive Santa and put in his coat sleeve.
And that's it for April's stitching.  I hope May is a better month.
