Gifted Gorgeousness February update

Two posts in two days - wow that's busy for me. I hope you managed to read my Valentine's Post and saw the beautiful biscornu Gill sent me for the Needlecraft Haven exchange - it was a gift but I included it in yesterdays post.

Today is Gifted Gorgeousness Day - a wonderful SAL set up by the lovely Jo at Serendipitous Stitching.  On the 15th of each month we share any gifts we have received or sent. It's so lovely to see everyone's work and also the kindness and thoughtfulness that goes hand in hand with our hobbies.

I have just one item to share this month - a little more next as some gifts have not yet been received.

I stitched this Owl bookmark for my friend who turned 50 last month. We were at school together and keep in touch although we don't see each other very often.

Owl bookmark 
I stitched him on plastic canvas and backed him with felt. It was a chart from Cross Stitcher magazine issue 262.

Thank you for calling by so soon after your last visit - happy GG day x x

Love the biscornu's from your last post, like I said on Julie's blog, I haven't made one for ages and had forgotten how lovely they are:-)

That's such a lovely gift. I like the idea of using plastic canvas for a bookmark. The biscornu yesterday were lovely.

What a lovely gift for an old friend (and I don't mean age either given I am 51 now!!)
I have a number of friends from school that I don't see often but we try to keep in touch - there is something wonderful about old friends in that even if years ago go by you can still pick up where you left off last time you saw each other!
Lovely GG post
Hugs xx
