Gifted Gorgeousness and TUSAL...

Updated 2/15/2016:
I apologize, I accidentally linked this post to my new Gifted Gorgeousness update.
My February GG update can be found here: Gifted Gorgeousness - February
Again, I apologize for the confusion.

Good Evening everyone!
I hope everybody is a having a wonderful Friday night.

(A quick warning, my pictures are not the best today, since I didn't get a chance to take any until after dark.  So, no natural light, just yellow, overhead lighting and bad shadows.)

I have decided to take part in the Totally Useless Stitch Along, since I really enjoyed collecting all my ORTs and watching the stash grow last year.
I decided to use the same container as last year...

And, a close up of the ORTs...
...lots and lots of green!

I also signed up for the Gifted Gorgeousness SAL, because again, I had fun participating in it last year and I wanted to continue.

I actually haven't worked on a lot of projects, just a couple that I've been rotating...
But, my Star Wars alphabet piece is going to be a gift, so this is a good time to share my progress...
-where I left off-


-and where I am now-

...close up...

And, a shot of how the entire piece is coming along...
I think the piece is coming along quite nicely!

And I have some progress to share on my Smalls SAL piece...
-where I left off-

-and where I am now-
Now you see why there were so many green ORTs this month.

Anyway, I am quite happy with my progress, since work has been super busy; but, I keep finding some time to stitch.
Well, I am off to find a project to work on tonight...
...not sure if I want to start something new or keep plugging away on my current rotation. (decisions, decisions)

I hope everyone has a terrific weekend!

    1. Thanks Rachel! Maybe a little bored with all the green. ;) That's why I need so many projects, so I don't get bored!

  3. Thanks for taking part in GG this month. The Star Wars piece is epic! I hadn't realised just how big it is. The teacher will love it.
