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.
The Snowflower Diaries free SAL for April was stitched on a piece of gifted Dragon Shades 28ct jobelan fabric from Polstitches Designs called Nature's Grace. It's a lovely hand dyed pale green and I used DMC threads.
Knitting pins have been clicking away. My granddaughter asked for a 'cardigan with no sleeves' as she called it. The recent red cardigans I knitted for her for school she loves and the pattern does give waistcoat instructions, so after a lengthy conversation about what colour she would like I went and bought some wool.
It's almost complete, just needs to be sewn together and the armbands and front bands added. Does this class as dark pink? that's the colour she asked for .... it was the darkest pink aran I could find locally and my argument to her will be that it is darker than the pink cardigan I knitted before.
So to fit in with GG a hand knitted gifted waistcoat (in the making)
I'm looking forward to seeing what lovely things you have all been using for this months Gifted Gorgeousness post and also anything that you have given away too.
I hope you are enjoying the springtime. We have birds nesting in the garden. Watching them to and fro into the nest box is lovely, a set of blackbirds are also in the trees as well as the blue tits this year.
Love and blessings
p.s. I've scheduled this post as I am enjoying a few days Spring break away with hubby, i'll tell you about that next time.
