Gifted Gorgeousness August Link-up Post


Welcome to the August Gifted Gorgeousness link-up.  The link-up date will continue to be the 15th and I will keep the link-up open until the end of each month so you have plenty of time if you are late posting.

The format remains exactly the same, there is a list of rules on the main sign-up page if you want to check what is required but basically anything connected to the word "gift" is allowed, whether it was a gift TO you or is a gift FROM you.

In the past month I have only stitched three gifted pieces:-

Just Nan's 12 Days of Christmas - chart was a Christmas present:


stitched on 32 count Vintage Grain linen


Lyndifarne's Discworld Mappe which will be a gift for my son:

stitched on 32 count Murano custom-dyed by Sparklies

These are two little tinies for a friend of mine, from the Donna Kooler 365 Tiny Cross Stitch Designs book the Zodiac SAL comes from.



Now it is your turn to show us your Gifted Gorgeousness for the month. Please use your name or your blog name in the field and NOT the words "August 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, the Summer Postcard Blog Hop has started!  Three cards have gone out, been received and shown on the recipient's blogs:


If you want to take part, just email me a photo of something you have stitched which is suitable as a postcard to a fellow stitcher along with a short message of the kind you write on a postcard.  I will forward the photo to another participant who shows it on their blog.  The photo can be anything Summer themed, beach themed, holiday themed, you get the idea!   It can be a new piece or something from your archives.  You have until the end of August to join in.

  10. Hi Jo! As usual, your stitching is fabulous!! The map is so unique, I'm sure your son will love it! The tiny stitches are so cute (I think I might have her book, I just love her designs!!) What will you do with them? Curious minds want to know! Thanks again for hosting this challenge (and the postcard challenge too!), you make blogging fun!

  13. I suppose it would be helpful if I actually linked up! My head has been off lately. I blame the heat. Not the usual scatterbrainedness, no...

    Does your son like watching the progress on Discworld as much as the rest of us? Or is he like just finish it already?

  14. Great stitching for the GG SAL. The two little Donna Kooler designs are just darling. I have that book, too, and every now and then I stitch something from it, for a card for example.
