Gifted Gorgeousness February Link Up Post

The first link up was an enormous success with 40 people linking up to share their Gorgeousness.
I thought there were alot of generous bloggers out there and this confirms it all.

  Gifted Gorgeousness

For newbies, this is my first year long SAL.  Click on the picture above for the full details.

We will be posting and linking up on the 15th of each month, because it is 2015.  Should be easy to remember.

In January I was also taking part in the DUCJC in memory of SoCal Debbie so I have many projects to show you!

And now over to you - Here is the place for you to link up so we can see what Gifted Gorgeousness you have been stitching so far this year.  Please use your name or your blog name in the field NOT the words "January Update" so I can easily see who has linked up this month.  And link to the actual post, not just your blog.  Thank you.  I can amend links if you make a boo-boo though.



Finally, we have a little Gifted Gorgeousness Giveaway this month thanks to the Gorgeous Gillie!  When I announced the GG project she sent DMC threads to me and to Jacquie, she also did a draw and sent threads to Sheila.  This time she is donating a wonderful chart just for the GG link-ups.

Earth Sampler by Primitive Needle

All you have to do is link up your GG post above AND leave a comment here clearly indicating that you wish to be in this GGG (Gifted Gorgeous Giveaway).  The words "Yes please, include me in the draw" are recommended as clear and non-ambiguous LOL.  One name will be drawn at random on the 1st March when the link-ups are closed and announced on next month's post.   Good Luck!

  15. Beautiful stitching of course! I should have saved my last blogpost for today shouldn't I! I think this is such a fantastic idea for a SAL Jo. With all the drama that goes on in some corners of the stitchy world, this is a really positive reminder of how awesome stitchers are!

  16. Your stitchery is so pretty and so diverse. Lovely work, Jo!
    Yes please, include me in the draw! Thank you Gillie for offering this lovely chart ")

Which may not be until tonight now as I have to leave for work soon! Aaagghh! I have been telling everyone in blogland that I am all over the place! Please enter me in the giveaway, too, I love that design. And, as always, thanks for organising this SAL. hugs, Kaye

  18. oh, your stitching is incredible! I can't believe you got all that as gifts!
