Gifted Gorgeousness / Giveaway

It's the 15th which means it's time for a Gifted Gorgeousness check in. We are supposed to share what we've been working on that was gifted to us or is going to be a gift to someone else. So let's see what I've been working on since the last check in...

I worked on my HAED Hold on to Hope. She was a RAK from another blogger who unfortunately doesn't blog any more. Here is where I got on her...
I'm so close to finished with her it's so exciting. I also worked on my Spring Bell Pull which was a gift to myself but then I won money from an online survey and it ended up paying for all 4 seasons completely so it was a lottery gift. Here is where I am on that one...
I finished a piece that my mom bought for me at the PALs Retreat in 2015. This is Seaside Squared by Erica Michael's I just LOVED doing it...
I also finished 1 of 4 Christmas Treasures from Just Cross Stitch Dec 2015 using a Jodyri thread from a giveaway from Tiffstitch. Here is the picture of it...
I've been very lucky to enjoy so many wonderful gifts. I figured it was only right to share with someone else. So I'm having a giveaway. Please let me know in the comment section if you would like to stitch this fun chart...
It's Let's Be Jolly by Ursula Michael. Since Spring starts this coming Sunday I figured it's time for this fun snowman chart to be off to someone else to enjoy. I'll have Jeremiah pick the winner Monday the 21st.

Sasha said...

Oh, yes! I love this snowman! I would so totally stitch this! He's so cute.

Rachel Tomkins said...

Such a variety of gifts you've been working on this month (I do like the way your gifted kit to yourself shoe-horned itself into GG!) I would have loved to have entered your giveaway but was gifted this chart for Christmas! Good luck to everyone else though! :)

Tiffstitch said...

Great list of progress and finishes and I love how you used the thread. Please enter me in the giveaway too, and that's very generous of you. :)

Lovely finishes. Seaside squared is amazing. So tiny. Spring is coming along too. Irises are my favourite flower. The snowman chart is lovely. Please enter me in your giveaway.

Gorgeous projects! I love the snowman. (However, I just received some fun items in another giveaway, so I do not need to be entered.) It will be fun to see where it goes!

Your HAED is beautiful! I have 5 large charts that I hope to stitch. I started on of them twice but did not like the way it was looking. I will start again…Are you stitching on Lugana? How many threads?
Each of the projects pictured is stitched perfectly! I am so impressed.
Seaside Square is amazing….so tiny.
Let's Be Jolly is adorable, add me to that drawing please. :-) Thanks!

That's so cool that Hope was a RAK. Love all your littles too!!

Great stitching on your projects! Glad Hope made an appearance, she is beautiful :)

PS: Only if open to those across the pond, of course! I understand postage cost could be a bit dear!

Thank you very much Mini!

Thanks for taking part in GG this month.
Hope is looking wonderful and very nearly finished!
I just adore the tiny Seaside Squared piece.
Thank you for the Generous GGG but please don't include me this time. Good Luck to all the others.

Heather said...

Awesome progress on everything! I'd love to stitch it but don't know when I'd be able to. If you want someone who will stitch it soon no problem counting me out, but otherwise thanks!

Elfie said...

I enjoyed seeing your stitching pics this month.

Justine said...

You've been stitching some lovely Gifted things this month! I really like the Erica Michaels piece your mum gifted you, and Hope of course!
Please don't include me in your drawing, though I love this snowman design I have just bought some new stash and am looking forward to having a new start soon.

Tina said...

I love your Hope piece, it's beautiful! Such crisp detail! I would have to put the beautiful snowman in my to do pile as I have a lot going on right now, but if that's ok with you I would love to be entered. Thank you!

Brigitte said...

These are some great pieces fort his month's GG post. And why not take gifts given to you by yourself? Lol.

Solstitches said...

All of your projects are so lovely. I especially love the little seaside piece. I've never seen that one before.

Lovely stitching! I especially like your version of Christmas Treasures with the overdyed thread on the sparkly fabric; I stitched my own version of this design for GG this month and it's amazing how one pattern can be interpreted in so many different ways :)
