Gifted Gorgeousness January 2016

Although I have just updated my blog I do have a  post for Gifted Gorgeousness which is hosted by the lovely Jo at Serendipitous Stitching. 

My gift this month is one given to me by my very talented Mum. She has made lace, tatting, crochet, knitting, dress making, decoupage, card making and machine embroidery but her biggest hobby is quilting, mainly by hand but charity pieces she finishes on the machine.

Mum has made us many quilts, especially for our caravan on chilly nights. She very kindly made us a Christmas quilt for our conservatory sofa as when the house is decorated the usual quilt looks a bit out of place. Mum has recently had an operation on her hand but she still managed to finish and machine quilt this lovely quilt and cushion for us.
