Created by the lovely Jo over at Serendipitous Stitching, a way to show what kind and wonderful people crafting folks are with their lovely gifts they send out to others.
The rules are quite simple and can be found on Jo's sign up page at the top of her blog February's link up page can be found HERE if you want to see what Gifted Gorgeousness posts everyone else has made.
It's been a busy February so far.
A finish for the February Joyful World SAL. I chose to stitch mine on a piece of hand dyed pink from a birthday gift grab bag at Polstitches Designs.
We've had a Chinese lunar new year on 8th February with this year being the year of the monkey. Not my year as I am the year of the rabbit (who would have guessed that!)
It was Shrove Tuesday on the 9th when pancakes were enjoyed
Valentines Day, a day of love - such a beautiful card, inside the little envelope is a little golden key to the padlock...
Sunday, Valentine's Day was also opening day of the biscornu exchange for the meet up ladies at Needlecraft Haven.
You may remember at our last meet up in the autumn one of our ladies had the most awful accident on her way home and broke her wrist and shoulder She's been healing well and stitching a little. I was the partner she got in the exchange and she was kind enough to make me this little beauty and include some chocs and a handmade valentine card too.
Thank you Angi (no blog), I know you have had such difficulty stitching since your accident and love the wonderful biscornu and card you made for me.
I stitched and sent to Lindsay. I chose to send a dozen stitched roses on my biscornu, there were 8 on the front ...
and four on the corners of the back...
I also added a couple of felt heart shaped coasters and a card, but forgot to take a pic of those.
Friends have birthdays this month and two gifts were made and sent out.
My LHN Kitty Sampler was turned into a cushion for one friend. I love the cat fabric that made up the border. The chart has now gone off in the post as a gift to another stitcher after she admired mine.
Barb has a birthday today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU ...... I chose the Sheila Sheep free design from Brookes Books for her birthday gift and made a little pillow with a peg to hold her knitting 'to do' list.
Just for fun I added a little note clipped on the peg .....
Wishing you a very Happy Birthday Barb, I hope you have a wonderful day.
At the knitting group we sit on hard chairs and have been given a feather cushion to cover. I'd got some cotton yarn in my stash and used that to cover mine like this ....
and the other side, a different colourway. It's very comfy to sit on lol
I think this post covers GG. The Joyful World free chart gifted to all stitchers, 2 stitched birthday gifts sent out to friends with one of the charts I gifted to another stitcher, an exchange and a cushion gifted to me.
I'm looking forward to seeing the other posts for this months GG
I hope your February is blossoming into a good month. For me, I've had/have hospital visits and we have suffered the loss of a family member so a time to meet with wider family this week and think of memories of happier times.
Blessings to you all
