I am a bit late posting these gifts (seems to be my usual refrain at the moment) but I have been sent some lovely gifts from wonderful bloggy friends over the past month. So, in the end it seemed best to showcase them in my Gifted Gorgeousness SAL post for this month.
Just to remind you:
The Gifted Gorgeousness SAL is run by the wonderful Jo fromSerendipitous Stitching. The idea is that every month we link to Jo's GG blog post to show off whatever we are stitching that is Gift-related. It can be something we are making for someone special or a chart or threads with which we have been gifted or basically anything else we can shoehorn into the basic premise.
It is such a good idea, as we all have something we are doing in at least one of those categories, don't we?
So , here we go:
Firstly, my SSF (Stitching Sister Forever), Kim sent me these gorgeous gifts as part of our Swapaway (you will notice from my sidebar, that one of my April goals is to finish my gifts for Kim and June for the swapaway but I am having trouble with deciding on a pattern for the next gifts I am making). I hate being so indecisive but I want the stitchy gifts to be just right!
The idea is that the gifts spell the word "FRIENDS". I can tell you, Kim really spoilt me!
... and this is what was inside - oh boy! Kim is such an exquisite stitcher and finisher!
Sorry, I do not know why some of these photos are sideways!
Thank you, thank you, dear, dear Kim. You are indeed my SSF!
Secondly, I sent the lovely Sarah a Little Sheep Virtue pattern as a gift as she did not have it for our LSV SAL. Well, she is truly lovely as she sent me all of these gifts in return (I can promise you, the pattern was originally sent with no strings attached!).
A gorgeous, gorgeous bookmark, a small Janlynn kit (which I posted about last GG SAL update), a needleminder , a book from an author whom we both like (Sarah Addison Allen) and some camel soap.
Unfortunately, my photos are playing up on my camera so I only have a pic of the gorgeous book mark to show you:
Thank you so much, dear Sarah. I absolutely adore this book mark and all of the other gifts, too. The novel was a great read and I have already lent it to my sister!
I have done some GG stitching but no time for that this month. I will reveal all next month.
Take care and don't forget to check out everyone's GG stitching at Jo's blog.
