Gifted gorgeousness - February edition
It's the 15th so that can only mean one thing...it's time for Gifted Gorgeousness hosted by the lovely Jo atSerendipitous Stitching . The basic idea is to stitch something using something that was gifted to you - such as the chart, threads, fabric or embellishments or stitch something that will be a gift.
Nothing new to share I'm afraid, I did finish making up the dolphins (Mouseloft kit) for my friend Lauren and sent it to her with some stationary.
I gave my friend Caroline this...Scandi Heart design from an old Cross Stitcher stitched on 28ct ivory evenweave using Dinky Dyes thread Aussie Dreams. I framed it in the hoop with a felt back and ribbon tie.
And she gave me this beautiful kit and chainette yarn.
I stitched this for another friend who's been under the weather lately. It's from a Cross Stitch Crazy chart book by Joan Elliott. I made a couple of adaptations so I could use the buttons on it. It's stitched over 1 on a bit of leftover 20ct Belana from a picture I stitched my Mum years ago, using a mixture of DMC threads (gifted by hubby) and Dragon Floss (gifted by Steph) in New Arrival and Grass Green, and finished off as a flat hanging with a beaded edge.
So that's about it, I'm off to stitch the bottom half of the biscornu I've been doing for the winter swap. Nothing complex just a snowflake design I charted myself. (If I can find it after clearing out craft corner at the weekend).
Don't forget my giveaway on the previous post and happy crafting.
