Gifted Gorgeousness June Link-up Post

Welcome to the June 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 stitched a few gifted pieces:-

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

stitched on 32 count Vintage Grain linen

Just Nan's Diamond Bouquet - chart was a gift and this was a finish, another off the 18 in '18 list

stitched on 28 count lilac evenweave

Lyndisfarne Design's Discworld Mappe - a gift for my son.

stitched on 32 count evenweave custom-dyed by Sparklies

And the starting point for IHSW on Chatelaine's Gardens of London - a Birthday gift

stitched on 32 count Cotton Clouds Belfast by Crafty Kitten

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 "June 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.

Please could you remember to link up as well as make your post.  There have been a few people making GG posts but not linking.  Which means they don't get entered into the draw.  If you have technical or memory issues, just leave a comment and let me know!



Finally, as mentioned above, it is IHSW this weekend.  International Hermit & Stitch Weekend, where you get to kick the family out of the house and spend the entire weekend stitching to your heart's content.  Or just try squeeze in ten minutes stitching time for yourself.  Sign up on the Facebook Group via the link below or on my blog on Monday:

A number of people have asked me to host a blog link-up page as they don't have Facebook so it will appear on Monday (evening as I'm working all day).

ps - this is my 777th post!

I love all your stitching, I would be hard pressed to pick my favorite! I can't wait to see more of your Chatelaine though, it looks gorgeous! Enjoy your hermitting weekend, I always seem to have errands to run on the weekends, but I'll stitch later tonight with you! Thanks again for organizing GG, it's always fun to participate.

Woo hooo!! Congrats on your 777th post. That's amazeballs stunner. So many pretties. I laugh so much when I see Discworld mappe wips now. Of course it's a turtle head. I love all your progress. I know I've said it before but I really love the colours on 12 days. I think its the purple date block with the red border. I've always loved those colours together.
I'm GGing and IHSW as we speak.

No hermitting for me apparently; I haven't touched a thing! Unless it's International Hermit and Buy Plants weekend. Or International Hermit and Clean Gutters weekend. I could join people there haha~

Good job on getting one of your 18 in 18s finished off. And lovely progress on all your GGs~!
