A late Gifted Gorgeousness

Gifted Gorgeousness is organised by the lovely Jo of Serendipitous Stitching 
The idea is to get those charts, threads, fabrics we've been gifted over the years used and loved or to share those projects we are giving as gifts

First is last weekends progress on 4 Wishes.
As you can see not much progress was made :(   a combination of having to frog the butterfly band so many times I lost count, having Teejay and his Mum arrive on Saturday and starting to get sick on Sunday all played their part but all progress counts.
Why is it a GG project I hear you ask ..... the chart, fabric and some of the threads were RAKed to me several years ago.

Sunday was opening day for the exchange organised at a meet up last year.
Julie sent me a dozen red roses :) there are 8 on the top and the other 4 are on the corners of the base

I went with Roses for my one as well only I changed them to yellow for friendship and Angie (no blog) tells me that yellow is her favourite colour for flowers

Thanks for taking part in GG this month. Nan's designs can be very time consuming with the fiddly colour changes I've noticed! Hope you're feeling better now.
Lovely biscornu from the exchange.

Great minds think alike, so funny we both chose to stitch roses for our exchange partners. Your yellow ones are lovely.

Both the biscornus are beautiful.
