Gifted Gorgeousness - February

The 15th of the month is time for a Gifted Gorgeousness post.  

A chance for us bloggers to show off gifts we have received.  It could be yarn, a thread, a piece of fabric or something that's not for crafting but was sent/given to brighten your day.  Have you made or given a gift, that counts too as does a free chart you have found and have used, given by the designer.  Did you previously receive stash that you have finally got round to using? 

You can read more about 'GG' here.  It's the brainchild of Jo at Serendipitous Stitching

Today someone is celebrating a birthday.  It's Barb, do you read her blog?   I knitted a pair of fingerless mitts to keep her hands warm and added a couple of small other gifts (which I forgot to take a picture of)

 
Yesterday was Valentines Day, did you have a nice day?
 
Over at Needlecraft Haven we had an exchange.  Not a stitched one.  This time we had to exchange a pair of socks with a valentine theme and include 2 skeins of thread matching the sock colours and card.
 
I sent to Clare .... lovebird socks, 2 DMC threads and a wooden postcard
 
 
I received from Christine.  A very special gift that had a pack of 3 pairs of socks in it.
 
 
Thank you Christine x
 
Time to stop by your blog and see what gifted gorgeousness you are telling us all about for February.
 
Love and Blessings to you all
 
Julie

Lovely fingerless gloves. The temperature here dipped below 0 here last week and I was thinking that I shud make some gloves like you.
The exchange sounds so much fun.
