September GG!

Hi everyone welcome back to another Gifted Gorgeousness hosted by the lovely Jo from Serendipitous Stitching.  GG is our chance to show off projects intended as gifts or using things we have been gifted.  I'm working on Paradise per usual and have quite a bit more progress.  

Here is last time:

And the next several colors.  11 to be exact :)

So as you can see I filled in quite a bit of ocean next to "fly" as well as a good part of the sky.  My next color will fill in most of the sky to the cloud above "the".  I'm about halfway toward the top row of pages being finished.  

I don't think it'll be done by the end of the month but I'll be taking it to the retreat.  If I don't have it done by the end of next month then I might cry lol.  But a lot of it depends on this weekend.  I'm hoping to stay home but hubby doesn't know if we're doing anything.  There's a little carnival we might go to but that probably wouldn't take more than a couple of hours.

I made more progress on Halloween Green.  I stitch it while I'm at lunch during student teaching and the kids are really interested in it.  I even have one girl who was asking where she could go to start one!  

Speaking of which, school is going well for the moment.  I really like my host teacher and I get to observe 5th grade which I was hoping for.  I've already taught a mini lesson on Harry Potter which was fun.  I have 6 more days to observe and I'll be done with it in mid-November.  Then I start my student teaching in January.

But for now I'm off to hit the hay.  I feel like I can't catch up on sleep no matter what time I go to bed so I'm really glad tomorrow is Friday.  I'm hoping tomorrow is like last Friday where I had no students.  I can't stitch in my off time but I can watch flosstube while I do math lol. Thanks to everybody who leaves comments and to all of my readers.  I try to reply to all of the comments that are given by readers who are not no-reply emails.  If you're not a no-reply commenter and I don't reply to you let me know because there may be a glitch. You guys are awesome thanks for sticking with me through the journey!


  1. The page is really coming together beautifully Heather! I am really excited to see the whole piece together. Glad to hear your teaching is going well.

  2. You progress on this is really impressive, well done. Sounds like the student teaching is going well. I hope you manage to catch up on the sleep and get in lots of stitching over the weekend.

  3. This is really coming together now!
    Glad the teaching is going well and hope you will have a quiet weekend full of zzzz and xxxx :)

  4. Looking good! I'm a no reply blogger, Heather, and set it up that way. Have a super weekend, and hopefully you'll be able to stitch more on this!

  5. Awesome progress Heather. It looks great.


  6. There are so many different colours in this section! Great progress! Have a good weekend :D

  7. Great photos - you'll be able to make a time-lapse video of the finish with them!

  8. It's fun to see your steady progress on Paradise. And great to read that you re happy with how school goes for you. Good luck for the rest of the time.

  9. Wow you are moving right along. Glad to hear you are doing good with your teaching.

  10. Thanks for taking part in GG this month. I really love this way of stitching and showing progress photos.
    Your new blog background makes it almost impossible to read the text though! I had to go back to my Reader and read it there. Sorry!
    Glad to hear that school is going well for you and the pupils too!
