It's the 15th of each month which means it's Gifted Gorgeousness time, the time each month when we share our latest gifts. These can be gifts given or received, or any item made using fabric, threads, buttons, ribbon, chart, backing fabric that has been gifted.
This great idea is hosted each month by the lovely Jo at Serendipitous Stitching, if you visit her blog you'll find the links to everyone's Gifted Gorgeousness posts.
Thank you so much for all the offers to stitch a flower for my church tree. When I put up my 'Could you help me make a bouquet' post I did not expect such a response. Although initially because of my diagnosis of breast cancer, with all of our lives becoming very different due to this awful virus and my unfortunate broken arm, I think the bouquet of flowers will be very special for us all.
I was delighted to receive these two beautiful flowers from Ann. I'm a fairly new follower to Ann's blog, Colourful Cross Stitches, and I'm loving watching her projects grow especially her Harry Potter SYOA. Her accompanying card gave me such a chuckle ... thanks Ann.

I haven't made any gifts this month although I had intended to. I am still stitching left handed very slowly.
Today was the last of my radiotherapy treatments, another part of this journey completed. Next week I see the specialist about my arm and my Oncologist about my chemotherapy restarting at the end of this month.
Our son's friend made we these lovely masks for my treatment visits, they have been great, it's nice not to wear the blue hospital ones all the time - thanks Jade.
