Gifted Gorgeousness - March

It's Gifted Gorgeousness time - a superb idea hosted by Jo at Serendipitous Stitching to share our gifts both sent and received. It's lovely to see everyone's gifts which can be:
  • any chart, kit, thread, fabric or finishing items you have been given
  • any chart, kit, thread, fabric or finishing items you have won in a giveaway
  • any chart, kit, thread, fabric or finishing items you have bought using a voucher given to you/won by you
  • anything you have gifted to someone else
My first item is a gift I stitched for a very good friend who we met through the wine industry. Last month was the People's Choice Wine Awards, for which I was a judge, and I knew she would be there so made this small gift. She loved it, it now lives in her office. 

A gift for a wine loving friend 
To my huge surprise I won a giveaway on Rosey's blog, Ishkabibble. It's a beautiful chart by The Needle and I with a heart for each season. I have an idea already about how to finish these, although I will be altering summer slightly.
Thank you Rosey 
A week on from my ankle operation and my foot feels ok, the stitches are starting to itch which, although frustrating as I cannot get to them, is a good sign.

Last week my Hubby and daughter bought me some lovely flowers. I had great fun yesterday wheeling into the kitchen (I am not allowed to weight bear until next week) and stretching over the sink to refresh them all. They all look like new and will hopefully last a while yet.

Gorgeous flowers from Hubby
Beautiful bouquet from Philly
It's always nice to give and receive gifts, I hope you've had a lovely March GG too.

  14. Sorry to be late commenting! I’ve been trying to finish some projects for my handicraft group's exhibition which was last week, so yay, I can get back to normal now! What is “normal” ..... tee hee!
    Lovely stitching Clare, and such a neat finish. I have quite a few stitched pieces I’m putting off because I’m worried I’ll spoil them!
    Such lovely flowers!
    Hope your ankle is improving.
