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 April

Another month has passed, and here we are once again at the 15th of the month, April this time. So, it's time for the Gifted Gorgeousness report, hosted by Jo at Serendipitous Stitching. It's our chance to report on stitching which was done with gifted supplies, or has been done to be gifted. Most of my stitching qualifies, as most of it is gifted, and most of my stitching supplies are gifted to me or bought with gift vouchers.

This month I finished up the rest of the Christmas ornaments I stitched last month.

The little stockings are adapted from a Kooler 'Littlest Stocking' design, and the 12 Days ornaments are also Kooler designs. Santa is adapted from a Graphworks design, and the blue diamond is adapted from a Blackwork Journey design. The trees are my own creation.

I also stitched and made up another 5 little stockings, which will form part of the Christmas gifts for five of my great nieces and nephews.

And also two more ornaments which just grew as I stitched. One will be a Christmas gift for an angel-loving friend, the other will go into my take-home gift basket for Christmas visitors.

I'm travelling in the caravan in outback New South Wales at present, and have intermittent access to power as well as to the internet, so I doubt there will be much to report next month, but fingers crossed that I will manage to do some stitching, or at least some crochet.

12 days of Christmas are always patterns I love to see, this one is lovely and the stitchings will give great ornements. Lovely Santa too. xxx

Thanks for taking part in GG this month. I love all your little ornaments, especially the beaded trees.
The stockings are so sweet too, lovely to have each one with a name.
The link-up is posted but I haven't added my projects yet!
