Is it already October 15th, can't believe it, the bad news is time flies too fast, the good news, it's time for update Gifted Gorgeousness post!
Please visit Jo's blog here :
Everything about this SAL is explained, every month we meet on line in Jo's blog to share our progress on stitchings, sewing, all DIY made as a gift or made with the help of a gift.
Let's see if I have been successful... but first let me tell you a little story :
When I was a little girl I was always happy to receive those lovely stitched cards with traditional costumes from French provinces. They probably won't make them in the future (they mostly are made in Spain).
But I felt great to send some "gift postcards" to Capucine and Soline from Normandy, here is a selection. Do you have those cards in your country?
Back to the alphabet for my grandchildren... three more letters...
Last winter, I found some nice diy wool Christmas wreaths ideas on the net, I have cut cardboards and begun to wrap wool around them and put them back in the basket.
I'm thinking of reorienting them to winter wreaths for DD1 and DD3.
I bought two lovely polar bears for DD1 and kids as winter theme, it will be white and ice blue colors for an ice floe landscape. I know my daughter loved words made with "tricotin" - French knitter so I made "winter" = hiver.
The second wreath has to be a "winter in Japan" theme to please DD3 with purple colors.
A snowy Mont Fuji and some Japanese decorations.
Some progress on doll's equipment, I have tested the hammock last Sunday "visiting" Violette and the lenght is good, now I can close it on a wood stick and add a fixing system with a ring.

Have a nice day... stiching! Bonne journée, à vos aiguilles !
