As the song from Gilmore Girls says “So welcome to my little corner of the world”. It’s all about me and my crafting – focusing around my love for stitching and sewing along with anything else that catches my eye. So welcome, grab a coffee and happy reading.

Gifted gorgeousness April!

Hello hello, 

GG time again, I'm sure by now you all know what it's all about. Thanks to Jo at serendipitous stitching for being our lovely and talented host. 

I know you've seen them all before but finally the recipients have them. 

Sun hanging for Jo

Camper van bookmark for (yup you've guessed it) Liz - design from Hancocks house of happy. 

Joan's biscornu from crazy 212. That's all the PIF's done, although I plan to give Liz and Jo their favourite flowers when I see them next as I posted the stitching. 

I also completed my stitch for Syria piece, stitched using anchor 1345 Iris. 

I won Sarah's giveaway a while back. She sent me all this lovely stuff. I have plans for some of the cotton reels and the baby footprints will be stitched for one of the Ministers at church and his wife who are expecting in the summer. 

Here's a close up of the larger chart. I'm not sure I could do the quilting the larger design has, but I do like the band sampler on the right. 

Sarah also stitched a sweet humbug and sent a lovely pearl bracelet too. 

So that's it! May will be a bit quieter as I've been stitching the small ABC SAL and 12 days and it will take a mighty big shoehorn to get those in... Although they are freebie charts and stitched with DMC threads (and hubby did buy me over half of them so chances are at least one came from that set!)

The travelling box is due in July too so I need to start making for that as I usually end up with 8-10 makes. I have my list of potential projects and all are stitched or embroidered so plenty to keep me busy even if there won't be lots to show. 

Have a great weekend, looking forward to seeing what gorgeousness you've all been gifted or are gifting to others. xx
