Monday Update / Gifted Gorgeousness

Few things combined in this Monday Update. I already shared with you my two finishes. Yesterday hubby and I had a DVR day. I spent the morning doing some catch up on computer stuff. I really enjoyed the Valentine Blog Hop. So many beautiful pieces had been entered this year. Caught up on my blog reading and email replies. In the afternoon I decided to start the Feb Year of Whimsy piece. Here is where I got...
Here is a reminder of what they look like...
I'm going to link up to Stitchery Link Party. If you do any hand and needle crafts you can check in. It's amazing to look at what some others have been working on. So pop over and check it out.

Today is also the 15th so that means it's time for a Gifted Gorgeousness check in. So let's review what I've been working on that's gift related since last check in...

10 more of my DUCJC pieces were gifted to me from my mom for Christmas. She did the best job ever shopping for me at the PALs Stitching Retreat last October. The two finishes in my last post were both purchased by my mother. We have already said we can't wait to go back this October to do more shopping.

I also started a set of seasonal bell pulls from Stoney Creek. I purchased Spring for myself and then found out I won $250 which will pay for all 4 seasons goodies so I guess they will end up being a gift from my survey company right?

I need to find a gift to do for some friends I'm going to see this weekend. They love Disney so I need to find the perfect Disney themed piece to do for them. See ya next check in!

Thanks for taking part in GG this month. It's only a small shoehorn to include the goodies you bought with your winnings!
Nice start on the Feb figure too.

I can't believe your mum bought you so many of your January pieces. Either she knows exactly what you like or had a helping hand (literally) putting things in her shopping basket ;) What a wonderful mum you have! :)

Lovely start on February's whimsy. I think that's a perfectly legitimate shoehorn for GG - they were a gift to yourself! Happy stitching

Such a great start on your February Year of Whimsy piece. Congratulations on winning $250! That would definitely come in handy with stitching supplies. :)

Brigitte said...

You made a great start on your new project. And yes, all these lovely kits your mom got for you make a great February GG.

Your mum has very good taste! And well done on treating yourself with your win.

Cute stitching! I think the best place to find Disney designs is etsy. Ask keiley from keebles world she would be the perfect person to steer you in the right direction.

Great start on the February Whimsy piece.
Your mum must have a word with mine, so she could take a hint on my cross stitch "must have" ;)
