Gifted Gorgeousness March 2015

It's month three of Jo's SAL, Gifted Gorgeousness. I'm really enjoying taking part, all the details are on her blog post here.

It was Mother's Day here in the UK yesterday - I hope everyone had a lovely day with those you love and you shared memories of Mum's who in the past loved you. Philly came home from Uni for the weekend and we had a buffet lunch for the Grandmas.

My first gift this month are these cakes for my Mum and MIL - it's the first time I used my alphabet cutter for the icing.

Mother's Day cakes
Stitching wise you may have seen these 'gifts' already - I find some parts of the SAL tricky because if I'm stitching a gift I can't share the progress and I like to post once I can as well as posting for GG15 - so quietness then double posting hahaha

Gift for Philly's 21st birthday
A kit gifted to my by Angi at a Needlecraft Haven Meet Up
Victorian Posy by Rainbow Gallery
Valentine's card for Deb (Sweet Feet Exchange)
 I stitched the hearts on perforated paper and backed them with felt, they are detachable from the card to make an ornament. It took Postie 4 weeks to deliver my parcel to Deb in USA, a little late for Valentine's Day, I'm just glad it arrived.

I was so lucky to win Gillie's Primitive Hare Gifted Giveaway - as soon as the chart arrives I'll be kitting it up and making a start - because it's a gift to me I will be able to share the progress - I'll probably add it as my Thursday stitching on my rotation plan - thanks Gillie x

Happy stitching everyone - thanks for calling by :)

Beautiful stitching! I'm sure your daughter loved her gift! I love the little Valentine, and how nice that it could be detached so she could display it! Congratulations on winning the chart!

Thanks for taking part in GG this month. I'm afraid that cakes don't count unless you send me a piece to taste LOL.

Love the design you stitched for your daughter and I'm looking forward to seeing the sampler started next month.
