Just in case you don't know what Gifted Gorgeousness is all about -
It is 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
Gifts come along in lots of different shapes and forms. Not always in an envelope that drops through the letterbox or wrapped up in nice paper and hand given for you to open.
Since my last GG post, I've had a lovely gift. The chance to use a friend of DH's holiday bungalow at the coast for a few days rest, relaxation and convalescence after a prolonged time of being under the weather (as the old saying goes). I'm just not firing on all cylinders and still undergoing further and ongoing hospital stuff - the joys of the NHS.
Nestled in fields as far as the eye can see from the kitchen window and a five minute walk away out of the back garden gate, a deserted out of season beach.
Peace, tranquillity and quiet contemplation... perfect!
Time spent in the garden listening to the waves, a little stitching on this month challenge. A gifted free online chart chosen by Christine. Here's a quick teaser of the design I finished stitching. Reveal of the finish as usual will be the last Sunday of the month.
A little knitting - another school cardigan gift for my granddaughter. She's growing like a weed and will celebrate her 6th birthday later this month.
Who gives germs as a gift? I awoke mid week to a cold, not a gift I really wanted! Quietly sitting in the sun room reading passed the time with tissue box on hand. A couple of nice books. Daughters of Castle Deverill is very good, the second part of a trilogy, the first being Songs of Love and War which I read last month. The third and final part is due out later this summer. Black Rabbit Hall, nice story with a few twists and turns that were unexpected - I'd been recommended this one last year.
The gift of laughter - we did giggle at these goats munching away up the cliff with the sea in the background. You don't expect a sight like that at the seaside!
I gave the gift of some of my lunch to this chap!
And just so I don't get the wagging finger and a telling off from Jo that this post is not quite shoehorned into GG here's the sock wool - that was a proper gift at Christmas from DH and before I went away the second sock was completed to make my pair in the hollyberry colourway from West Yorkshire Spinners.
and an update on the winter block of My Four Seasons, the chart being a gift quite some time ago.
With being away I'm behind on blog reading so will be stopping by your blog to see your GG post as I catch up on what else you have been doing.
Love and blessings
