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, August 2022

 I have just a few pictures to show for this month's Gifted Gorgeousness report.  GG is hosted by Jo at Serendipitous Stitching on the 15th of each month. Anything stitched with gifted supplies, or stitched to be gifted, qualifies for inclusion.

First up, Unicorn Kiss from Belle & Boo, which I stitched for my greatniece Sarah's fifth birthday. Sarah has an enduring fascination with unicorns, and when I saw this design I immediately wanted to stitch it for her. I did change floss colours to bring it in line with Sarah's preferences. I also omitted some of the backstitching. I framed it in a purchased frame with a 20cm x 25 cm (8" x 10") mount.  It was a great hit with Miss Sarah.

This little cat will be turned into a Christmas ornament for a cat-loving member of my extended family.  The chart is in Barbara Mock's Christmas Quickies booklet (Dimensions #175, 1990).

The only other stitching I have done is for me, but stitched with gifted charts, fabric, and floss: Days 5 and 6 of Shannon Christine's 12 Days of Christmas set. I am loving stitching this set.

Unicorn Kiss is beautiful, perfect for a 5th birthday. Lovely stitching, nice to see some pieces for yourself as you stitch so much for others.

Thanks for taking part in GG this month. The unicorn chart is lovely, perfect for your great-niece.
I love the way you have embellished the Shannon Christine designs too.
