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 May

Wow, how is it time for GG already?  I hope you've all had a good stitchy weekend. gifted gorgeousness is hosted by Jo of serendipitous stitching where we show what we've stitched that has been gifted to us or will be a gift.

So I've a few bits to show...

Just Nan Spring frills humbug. A gift from Carolyn. 

Blackwork Birdsong by DMC. A gift from Steph - all finished. Yay!

Celtic bird by Textile Heritage. A gift from Laura and finished as a lavender sachet. 

Anchor Sampler. Gift from my in laws. Flower on the right worked on. 

Mill Hill Squirrelly. Gift from Steph and my first mill hill kit. 

That's quite a pile! I've worked on a couple of gifts too, but I'll save them for when they're done. 
Happy stitching friends.
