Gifted Gorgeousness November Link-Up

2017 GG

Welcome to the November link-up for Gifted Gorgeousness. The linky will stay open until the end of the month so you have plenty of time to link up and join in.


Another great month for Giftedness.  As well as stitching on gifted pieces I also gave three away as prizes in the Hallowe'en Trick or Treat Blog Hop.

Part of my Dark October stitching was Raven by Nora Corbett, the chart was a gift from Tiff:

Spooky Night from Shepherd's Bush was a gift from Vickie and another finish:

Progress continued on Joan Elliott's 12 Days of Christmas, a gift from my MIL:


My big finish for the month was Dragon Dreams Dragon of the Winter Moon, a gift from Riona:

I'm currently stitching Memories by Just Nan, a gift from Vickie:

So now I hand over to you. This is where you link up your post for this month. Please use your name or your blog name in the field and NOT the words "November Update" so I can easily see who has linked up this month. And link to the actual post, not just your blog. It is easier if you copy and paste the link, rather than typing freehand.

Finally, it's time to sign up for the Advent Calendar  Blog Hop!  For this hop, each participant is allocated a day in December to make their post on.  They will show something they have stitched on a Christmas theme and answer the topic question I set.  I then copy their photo onto my blog post in the style of an Advent Calendar.

So if you'd like to join in, please leave a comment or send me an email.  Let me know if there is a date you would particularly like or one you'd like to avoid.  I will be in touch towards the end of the month!

Here is a link to last year's so you can see how it works:

  3. Look at you go!! I'm envious of how much you've accomplished this month, especially on your dragon, he's lovely!! Your 12 Days of Christmas looks so beautiful, and it's so close to being finished!! Well done!! (I just realized I probably use too many exclamation marks...oh well at least you know I'm excited for you!) Your Just Nan piece is coming along nicely too, I can't believe how much you've stitched since you showed it last post...your needles must be smoking! Off to get some more stuff finished, so I have something more to show next month! Happy Stitching!

  13. Isn't that fabric for Raven incredible! Not sure I've seen anything like that before! And I love your sweet SB finish... Looks like you will, most likely, have a 12 Days finish before Christmas, Jo! Good luck :)

  14. Great stitching. I've been being selfish and not stitching for others right now. So no post from me this time. I'll just enjoy your beautiful projects instead.

  20. Lovely gift stitching Jo,I can't believe how much metallic is there in teh dragon and you never complained about it.
    I have now linked up.

  21. Wow two wonderful finishes! I love all the beading and metallic thread you used on him, he truly looks magical. And also a sweet lil Halloween finish. Good job stunner! It would appear that another finish is on the horizon for you too. 12 days looks fantastic. And a massive shout out to the audacious nebula fabric. Sorry I haven't posted in this SAL for a bit but I haven't been working on gifted wips. But I shall rectify that for December.
