Gifted Gorgeousness - March

The 15th of the month so that means it's time for a Gifted Gorgeousness post. 

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
 
March's link up page can be found here if you want to see what Gifted Gorgeousness posts everyone else has made.
 
This month I've gifted my daughter a new pair of hand knitted socks ...
 

Let's take a closer look, oh dear there seems to be somewhat of a faux pas - yes, I ran out of wool just at the toe of the second sock.  I tried to knit faster so the wool went a bit further (does anyone else do that when they are nearing the end, or is it just me!)  
 
 
My daughter wasn't bothered about the differing toe end as they will be inside her wellington boots when she's doing her gardening.
 
The travelling chart has been gifted on to June, she's received it today and inside the envelope I added one of my bunnies and a little sticky notepad with a hare looking at the moon - an envelope filled with bunny rabbit delights.  Happy stitching of the chart June.
 
 
A little square design that is going off to Stitch for Syria.  A gift for them to make into a wall hanging.  You can find out about that here.  I've seen a few of these on blogs recently, and measuring 2.2" square they don't take long at all to stitch up.  I chose to use purple thread as that is supposed to be a healing colour and I had some scraps of 14ct aida in my box that was perfect for the job.
 
 
The Joyful SAL for March is my final addition to this months gifted gorgeousness post.  A design gifted to all stitchers from Maja at the Snowflower Diaries.   I decided on a hand dyed piece of blue fabric for this month. 
 
 
Time for me to nip off and visit your blogs to see what gifted gorgeousness you have all been sending/receiving since last months post.
 
Love and blessings
 
Julie

    How nice of you to include that ADORABLE bunny and note pad with the traveling chart. You certainly are talented with the knitting needle!
    Your charity block is very pretty and the March block is too cute.

  10. Lovely stitching and knitting Julie. The toe on the sock is too funny, that is just the sort of thing that usually happens to me. Just call it a "unique designer feature" and carry on :)

  11. I love the socks. Perfect even with the fun colored toe. Just makes them special. Love the purple for the Syria piece. I just love the March SAL pattern. I love the beautiful crane in it.

  12. Lovely stitching on the Snowflower SAL, those designs are all so cute so far :)
    I love the socks too!!

  13. I do love your Joyful World stitching, I'm still on the first month, it's a little challenging as it's only the second cross stitch I've ever done so It's taking a bit of doing, especially with all the spare fabric getting in the way. Hand knitted socks are the most luxurious things, they will keep your daughter's tootsies nice and cosy for sure.

    Much love and many hugs to all.

  17. Thank you for taking part in GG this month.
    I love the odd toe sock! It will help her tell her left and right foot apart too.
    June will love the bunny in with her chart and Concern will appreciate the stitched square.
    Maja's design is wonderful. I am enjoying seeing all the different versions of it.

  18. Oh, how wonderful of you to sent a new bunny to June, Julie--she is adorable... I'm sure you love knowing your bunnies are nestled in homes all over the world :) Lovely color of yarn for the socks and the March Snowflower Diaries piece is so sweet. The pale blue fabric is such a perfect choice for this one...

    Hope the rest of March is good to you!

  24. A lovely unique pair of socks. Most of my stitching group are knitting socks but I haven't caught the bug. The bunny you sent to June is lovely.

  25. I wouldn't be bothered by a different toe color! You chose one that matches well. I do find I knit faster a the end too! I am trying to break myself of that because mistakes come out in droves ahaha. Lovely stitching on all and your little bunny is adorable.

  26. A joyful GG post, Julie. I live the socks you made for your daughter. And that red tow end on one of them is a really special treat. And June must have been so pleased to receive one of your sweet bunnies with the bunny chart. Yes, you are right - Joyful World is also a gift. Nice March finish.
