Goodness this year is flying past at a fast and furious pace!! It's October 15th already and I still haven't got my giveaway together yet. Ok brain, let's get busy!!
It's time for Gifted Gorgeousness or affectionately called GG. Jo over at Serendipitous Stitching is host for this lovely challenge. You can learn all the rules here. And you can visit her blog to see what others are up to in their GG stitching. Thank you for hosting, Jo!!
So this is the time when we show what we have been stitching with gifted materials or things we are gifting others. I am in the midst of stitching things for exchanges for different groups I belong to, so I'm keeping a wee bit busy and can't show you everything I've been stitching. Suffice it to say, I have some Christmas ornaments in the works and will show them at a later date. I've also stitched some Christmas ornaments that were for challenges that came from JCS ornament issues that were gifted to my by my husband. Here are a few I've finished since the last GG posting
I saw three ships come sailing in by By the Bay Needleworks from the 2013 JCS Ornament issue stitched on 28 ct. Star Sapphire over one.
Fair Island Ornament by Snowflake Stitchery from the 2018 JCS Ornament issue stitched on 40 ct. natural over 2.
Now What by Dragon Dreams from the 2018 JCS Ornament issue and this one has been gifted to a friend of mine who likes things wrapped in Christmas lights. Stitched on 32 ct. over 2.

Three Wise Men by Marie's Garden from the 2002 JCS Ornament issue stitched on 32 count dirty linen over two.
Last Christmas my husband found these lovely French charts for me. I've stitched a couple and just the other day I was able to finish this one into an ornament. I think this one is from Le Grande Historie de Noel by Les Brodeuses Parisiennne. This is stitched on 40 count natural over two.
I stitched and finished this freebie from The Victoria Sampler. This is called Connie Angel and you can find the pattern at this link. This is stitched on 40 ct. natural over 2.
I participated in a SAL by Charting Creations. We were to stitch for 3 months and post once a month on a Charting Creations pattern. This was a freebie they offered and I stitched but wasn't able to finish. Here is how far I've been able to stitch. I still have another reindeer and Santa in his sleigh to finish. Stitched on 32 count over one
For our Anniversary last year my husband gave me this pattern along with all the materials to stitch it. I have put this in my TSP challenge being offered at my LNS and this month it's number was chosen. I'll be working on this all month. I'm stitching it on 28 count black and is a challenge. It seems easier to stitch in the daylight but I've tried working on it all hours of the day. It's slow going but I love how it's turning out. I've tried different ways to take the picture but it's hard to get true colors on black fabric. Here is Marie Antoinette's Kaleidoscope by Chatelaine Designs.
I guess that's enough for now, I hope you aren't too bored with all my stitching...haha I've been on a roll lately. I'm sure I'll have more to show you next month! Until then, happy stitching!!
