I'm a few days late with this Gifted Gorgeousness report. Jo at Serendipitous Stitching hosts the Gifted Gorgeousness SAL, and the 15th of each month is the day to report. Pretty much all of my stitching qualifies, as most of my stitching is destined to be gifted, and the few things that I stitch for myself are stitched on gifted supplies (my family and friends are very generous when it comes to birthday and Christmas gifts).
The first thing I have to show is my HAED Christmas Dreams, home from the framer and now hanging in my craft room. I am so happy with the framing. For this photo I sat the frame on a 2 -seater sofa, and there wasn't much room to spare on the sofa.
The next group is also mine. This year I am stitching Kooler's 12 Days of Christmas, designed by Sandy Orton. This month I finished up into ornaments Days 6, 8, 10, 11, and 12, and stitched Days 7 and 8.
I made a glittery Christmas tree ornament for Miss 11.
This group of ornaments are for the grandchildren of a long term friend - two boys in England and two girls in New Zealand. All the designs came from Jeanette Crews Designs One Nighters leaflet, "59 Christmas Motifs". I substituted beads for stitches in the angel wings.
These four ornaments will be take home gifts for Christmas visitors. The message on the first one is adapted from Susan Greening Davis' design 'Memories' published in JCS Christmas Ornaments 2015.
