Gifted Stitching

Hello, Stitchy Friends! Christmas is now over and the end of the year is getting closer. Around here it is time for quietness, reflection, and planning (and a little bit of Boxing Day shopping…). Tomorrow I will be sharing my stitching plans for 2017, including what I want to accomplish during the 2017 Smalls SAL, but today I wanted to share the stitching gifts I gave this Christmas.

Yo Ho Ho, designed by Sue Hillis

First up is Sue Hillis’ Yo Ho Ho, a super fun pirate Santa that I stitched up for my mom. She loves Santa designs so much, and I thought this design was too cute to pass up. It is stitched using DMC thread on a SilkWeaver solo that I got years ago. The map charm was included with the chart.

Voyage at Sea, designed by Dimensions

Second is Voyage at Sea, a small Gold Collection design from Dimensions. I stitched it for my dad, who loves ships and light houses and all of those sorts of things. I used the thread and fabric included in the kit. The braid around the edge is couched on and gives the design a really great 3d look.

All Your Pie Tape Measure Cover, designed by Tabitha Rose

The last little thing I made was this adorable tape measure cover for an exchange. The pattern is All Your Pie Tape Measure by Tabitha Rose. I used Bernat Satin in colours Sable and Teal.

Did you give away any stitchy gifts this year? If you did, I’d love to hear about them! Leave me a comment.

    All beautiful gifts, but I especially love the Yo Ho Ho with the candy cane leg. No stitchy gifts from me this year – need to pull up my socks!

    Heather: Wonderful finish’s love the tape measure cover.


  3. I’m impressed indeed. I did give my mother the needlecase, pincushion, and scissors keep I made “Inspired by Spring Flowers”, but I got that stitched ages ago!

    Your gifts are wonderful. I also love the candy cane peg leg. The braid is very effective too.

    Oh those are beautiful. I just love the Voyage at Sea piece. I did my first embroidery piece for my Mom. I posted in a few posts ago on my blog. She loved it.

    What beautiful gifts! My dad sounds like yours and loves everything to do with the sea and sailing so I really love your ship. I made one stitchy gift for a friend but forgot to take a photo of it!
    Hope you had a lovely Christmas.
