Gifted Gorgeousness September Link-up Post


Welcome to the September Gifted Gorgeousness link-up.  The link-up date continues 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.

Deb sent me the charts for the Stoney Creek 2019 Ornaments which were my Stitchmas project this year. I started all 12, one per day and will be completing one per month.  September is for Ladies Dancing:

The WIPGO Board chose Fairy Idyll for August.  The chart (and extras) was a gift from a friend.  By the end of the month I had reached this point:

Gathering Eggs by Nora Corbett, the chart was a gift from a friend.  This was a triumphant finish at the start of this month:

stitched on 35 count Vintage Country Mocha Linen

This next project is stitched from charts which were Birthday gifts and on fabric which was a giveaway gift.  It is my spooky conversion of the CCN Main Street designs.  I completed my third shop this weekend.  The Cafe became Cauldrons:

I'll do a full post about the changes I made later this month.

The Bothy Threads 12 Days of Christmas kit was a Christmas present:

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 "September 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, I received a lovely gift myself from Kerry in Stitches.  I won a giveaway on her Flosstube channel and she sent me a box of loveliness which I have not had time to photograph yet so I will add the pictures in when I do!

I remember just seeing the basket of eggs in it's early stages, this finish is just darling!! I love it!! The Bothy Threads 12 days is so gorgeous and Day 1 is stunning! This is quite a stitch heavy project and I will enjoy seeing your progress on it.

Such beautiful stitching! They are all so pretty, but my favorite is Gathering Eggs. What a lovely finish! I love how you are changing the CCN to a spooky series, what fun! You are very creative! Can't wait to see more of the fairy. I added to my 12 Days collection this month...LOL So I'll have a few more new series to stitch next year! Bothy threads is looking soooo good! Thanks for hosting GG!
