Gifted Gorgeousness - February...

It is the 15th of the month, so it is time for a 'gifted gorgeousness' update...
(The gifted gorgeousness SAL is run by Jo at Serendipitous Stitching and you can find all the information about this SAL there.)

Again, my rotation of projects has been pretty small and the only piece that I am currently working that is set to be a gift (or gift related) is the Star Wars alphabet...
So, on to the pictures of the characters from a galaxy far, far away...

-where I left off-

-and where I am now-
Four more characters are finished!

(I was so excited to stitch the Ewok, because he is just so darn cute, but boy did he give me a headache...
...the head and body stitched up just fine, but that little silver, spear top was a pain in the butt!
I think I stitched those 6 stitches (2 full stitches and 4 half stitches) 4 times, before I just gave up and called it good.)

And lastly, a look at the entire piece...
There are 28 characters (26 for each letter of the alphabet and 2 extra for the "C" and "L") and I have stitched 18 of them...
...only 10 more to go!

Well, I must be off...
...time to paint more jars, so I can pay for more stitching stuff! (LOL!)
Hope everyone has a great week!


  1. I love the Ewok too. Hope you don't now suffer with nightmares about spearheads!! :)

    1. Thanks Rachel!
      No, no spearhead related nightmares, but I'll be happy if I never have to stitch a spear again. :)

  2. Wonderful progress Carrie.


  3. Thanks for taking part in GG this month. I love this project! I am hoping some friends of mine have a baby soon so I can stitch it for them LOL

    1. Thanks Jo!
      Hope you are able to stitch up the alphabet soon. ;)

  4. I just love these little Star Wars people. It is looking great

  5. Such a great chart!!! I think I will have to blame you (nicely, of course) for adding it to my wish list :)

    1. Thanks Mii!
      Believe me, my stash has grown immensely since I started blogging and seeing all the wonderful projects everyone is working on.

  6. Great progress, you've done quite a lot, they're so cute!

  7. I love your Ewok.... I have a hard time choosing who is my favourite - Chewie or Ewoks!
    Hugs xx

    1. Thanks Noni!
      Those have definitely been 2 of my favorite characters to work on.
