Come visit with me as I stitch and craft my way from one Christmas to the next - I like to have Christmas projects close by me all year. I have a particular fondness for Santas and Angels. If you have the time, leave a comment so I know you've visited.

Gifted Gorgeousness Report for February

I've not done much stitching at all this month. It's been an unusual month. Half of it was spent in hospital having a knee replacement surgery followed by 10 days in a rehab unit. I am home now, walking well and very pleased with my progress. I have booked in to have the other knee done in April. There'll be no holding me back then!

I did manage to stitch three Christmas ornaments, which will be Christmas gifts for the children whose names appear on them.

First, a snowperson for a great-nephew who lives in New York state, and who (unlike his Aussie cousins) knows all about snow. The chart was published in BH&G '101 Christmas Cross Stitch Designs (1999). I changed all the floss colours and the shape of the heart.


And next, two bead decorated Christmas trees. These are my own designs.



Finally, a WIP, another Christmas tree yet to have the borders finished and beads added.

I'll probably stitch one more tree before I finish up this batch of ornaments.

Thanks for visiting. I'll be hopping in to check on all the lovely stitching in the February reports.

Thanks for taking part in GG this month.

Even on a low-stitch month you have still produced some gorgeous ornaments.

Hope the knee is OK now. In the UK a rehab unit is for recovering from an addiction! The only thing we are addicted to is stitching and I don't want to recover from that LOL

Wow - I'm pleased I chose the right rehab unit! Stitching is one of the things that helped me through rehab!

Good news to read you are doing well after the surgery.
Super ornaments you were able to stitch up during your recovery.
