Gifted Gorgeousness in August


Gifted Gorgeousness is hosted each month by the lovely Jo at Serendipitous Stitching. GG, on the 15th of each month, is 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. If you visit Jo's blog you'll find the links to everyone's Gifted Gorgeousness posts.

My first gift is a double gift because I purchased the chart and fabric with a gift voucher gifted to me. Our super son has been studying for a degree, he decided to have a bit of a career change and has worked so hard over the last three years. Not only were all his studies affected by Covid with his learning being online and difficulties in completing the practical assignments due to lockdowns but he was helping here at home as I bad my cancer treatment.

We are delighted that he achieved a first degree - a BA Hons in Media. I stitched this with such pride, he has already overcome so much. 

My other gifts you may have seen in my Fully Finished Objects post a few days ago. They are beautiful letters from Rachel and Mary for my Alphabet Tree - thank you both so much.

I have a few gifts planned for the next few months including a birthday gift that I hope will use something that has been in stash for quite a long time. 


  1. Congratulations to Michael and his proud parents. With all you’ve been through the past few years that’s quite an accomplishment! Your stitching is lovely too! The letters are lovely too!

  2. Congratulations to your son you both most be so happy .
    Lovely gifts , Enjoy your week.

  3. Those letters are lovely, and beautifully finished. You have quite a collection already. I am looking forward to seeing them all together at Christmas. I also love the piece you stitched for your son.

  4. Well done to both of you, bravo! Nice to see your Alphabet growing so well (I hope I'll be able to join the band soon). Bisous.

  5. What a beautiful piece you stitched for your son! Congratulations to him--that was a lot of hard work through some difficult circumstances.

  6. Thanks for taking part in GG this month and congratulations to Michael on getting his degree! It's definitely been a strange few years for students!

  7. Lovely way to commemorate your son receiving his degree! He sounds like an angel of a son since he was studying and helping you with your treatments. Sounds like it is a true celebration for the two of you. You received some very nice additional letters for your tree. I can't wait to see it.
