Gifted Gorgeousness - April

Today is my first official posting for the Gifted Gorgeousness SAL! Both my current projects are intended to be gifts so I will post my progress for them! Please look past how wrinkled both look :-P

First up is my "Olde World Map"! Again, I've only been working on it during down time at work but I feel that I have made good progress. This will be a gift for my mom and stepdad who absolutely love anything having to do with maps and globes. I would love to have this one done in time for Christmas but if not then I'm ok with that too.


Second is "Love Is Patient". I didn't really work on this one at home very much this week because I've been busy with the baby and other things but I'm happy with the progress and how easy it seems to move along. This will be a wedding gift for some dear friends of mine. This verse has always been one of my favorites and when I saw this kit, I just had to buy it and knew exactly who I would give it to. This project has a deadline though. The wedding is May 11th, so I need to have it finished and framed by then! I definitely need to get crack-a-lackin on this because I really don't want to be rushed in the end. 


All-in-all I am happy with my projects' progress and can't wait to see the finished product for my friends' wedding!

In other news, I will also be working on a small project for the upcoming Smalls SAL and I have recently joined the Totally Useless SAL. I look forward to posting for those soon :-)
