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 October

Mid October already - this past month has really flown by. My mind is still back in August! I'm quite recovered from my breast cancer surgery and so happy that I have finally lost my drainage tubes (on Day 24 and Day 32 respectively. The second one actually came out accidentally when the stitch just fell to pieces, otherwise I may still have been carting it around.) I will get my radiation therapy schedule this week when I see the radiation oncologist for the first time.

I have not been very productive this  month. I did crochet three cotton bags for three little girls on my Christmas list.


I finished up this replacement 'Baby's First Christmas' ornament for a friend's grandchild. I still have trouble understanding how I could have mis-spelled her name for so long. I am usually so careful to check spellings.

Just to keep my fingers moving, and my mood happy, I made two more beaded Christmas tree ornaments, to add to the basket of take-home gifts for Christmas visitors.

I have added the birth details to my great-nephew's dinosaur birth sampler. I have found a suitable frame, so now I need to get a mat cut so that I can frame it up for Christmas. 

And that ends my GG report for this month. I look forward to seeing all the lovely projects as I pop in to check the GG reports.

Ooo you're quick with your GG! I like that you make bonus ornaments for guests. That's a sweet idea. :D

I love those bags! What lucky girls! The first Christmas ornament is so cute! Love the beaded ornaments too, and the birth sampler is perfect for a little boy. You've been busy!!

What a wonderful idea to have visitor ornies to give away. Glad to hear that the surgery went well and fingers crossed for you that the chemo goes smoothly, too.

Lovely gifts, especially the crochet bags. They will be useful.
It's good that you are recovering well. I hope the chemo is not too difficult for you.
