Gifted Gorgeousness - February

Hello friends

Gifted Gorgeousness time again hosted by the fabulous Jo at Serendipitous Stitching where we show what we've been stitching that has been gifted to us or that we will be gifting to others - be it using a kit, fabric, threads, chart or embelishments.

So I had a very successful start of the month. I met up with my lovely craft friend Caroline who used to work in the office downstairs from mine and made her a little gift as I hadn't seen her in quite a while. I stitched the Heritage Crafts Butterfly and Buddleia needle book kit that was gifted to me by Laura when she had a clear out and I knew I'd stitch it for Caroline and was one of my 17. The finishing was a bit fiddly, it might have been due to the fact I stayed up really late to get as much stitching done then got up really early to finish it off and make it up.

A bit of this, a bit of that.

Hello friends,

A short post today, partly because it felt really odd not to have written a blog this weekend. It's been a good week for stitching. I've had a start and a finish (which I will save for GG) and made very good inroads into one of my Focus Finish February pieces for Theme-Tas-Stitch. I decided to go with the biscornu and after a good session on it yesterday I have around 200 stitches to go. It's hard to see the stitching on the back but it's there! Then it'll just be the making up. I am on for a finish today. I'll be going back to Twelve Days after. I don't think I can get a finish by check in on the 21st but it's possible I could have a finish by the end of the month.
