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.

February Gifted Gorgeousness

Hey folks 

Time for GG hosted by the awesome Jo of Serendipidous Stitching. 

Last month I had nothing to share! This month everything is either being gifted or stitched using gifted stuff! 

So let's launch into the projects that will be gifted...

Birth Sampler. I brought this in Aldi would you believe for £2.99. The floss is good quality and chart is very clear and even came with a hoop. I swapped out the aida for some witchelt star sapphire linen. I'm stitching this for my friend who is due in April. 

Next up is the Japan bookmark by Anchor . I started this back in 2012 and had only stitched 50 stitches. I'm stitching this for my mums birthday next month. This may have even been a gift to me. 

Love never fails is a freebie by the Primitive Hare and stitched in a 4 ply thread by 21st century yarns over one on 20ct belana  and is going to be an ATC, along with a couple of the designs on the next pic and the 4 tiny biscornu will become scissor fobs for friends. 

So on to the projects that were gifted to me...

Spring frills by Just Nan. I won this eons ago in blog giveaway from Carolyn. 

Palko Lap calendar SAL stitched with gifted fabric and a couple of gifted threads. Yup it's done!!! Happy dance. 

Have Faith by Design Works. A gift from Steph. 

City landscape by Zweigart on gifted fabric from hubby and the kids. 

Humbug by Shiny Room. Brought with a gift voucher to Sew and So from stitchy pal Shannon. 

I was gifted this chart too this week from another stitchy pal Rachel. 

I started this little embroidery I got from Paperchase at Christmas with another voucher. 

Wow! that was a lot for one month!

Thanks for stopping by and happy stitching friends.
