Gifted Gorgeousness (or GG) is a SAL run by the wonderful SAL Mama, Jo from Serendipitous Stitching. Basically, on the 15th of each month, we post anything which is stitchy gift-related.
First up is a gift of some lovely Henry Viii and his six wives chocolates that my dear friend Anna (no blog) brought back for me from a recent trip to London. I have been resisting eating them as they look so cute with my Henry Viii thimble (which I bought at Hampton Court Palace in 2006) and my Henry Viii and his six wives teapot.
Thank you, dear Anna, for thinking of me. Such a thoughtful gift.
Also, I have been working hard on my DD's London blanket. She has been travelling all over Europe and even into Morocco, where she spent a night in the Sahara and kissed a camel - I wonder if in Moroccan fairytales it is camels that turn into princes if you kiss them rather than frogs (which are probably pretty rare in the Sahara - lol!)????
Then, my dear friend Linda, came home from her trip to France and brought me back this gorgeous Medieval book mark kit. I can't wait to stitch it up!
Doesn't she know me so very well?
Also, this month, I had the Prairie Schooler train birth sample framed and gave it to the new mum and baby.
I am so very pleased with how this turned out and Hannah, the new mum, loved it.
We had lunch at The Kiln, a very nice cafe on the site of the old Northcote Pottery (I still have some of their terracotta pots in my garden).
Okay, I think that is it for now. I do have one more GG piece finished, which I stitched for a dear friend's 60th but it is off being framed, so I think that I will hold it over until next month.
Take care everyone, happy stitching,
lots of hugs,
P.S. Ooops, forgot to tell you, please click here, if you wish to see what the other GG participants got up to this month.
