May Gifted Gorgeousness

Gifted Gorgeousness was the brilliant idea of Jo to encourage stitchers to use those items in our that have been gifted to us from the smallest charm to the biggest kit or projects that will once finished be gifted to someone. 

First for me this month is my progress on the Linen & Threads Mystery SAL the chart is a freebie and so it's a gift :)
I'm using 40 count sand linen, B2500 and whatever colour I feel like at the time for mine

Next is April Monthly Challenge over on Needlecraft Haven.
Once again it's a freebie this time from Alita.   I used some of my lovely Calypso NN thread and a scrap of silver lurex Linda (very sad they stopped making this) for mine.
The stitching was done mid April but I only got round to making it up this week!  I used one of those mini easels that comes with a tiny canvas for it and I think it turned out quite well.

And lastly this years Birthday start.
My Daughter gifted me the chart/ thread pack for Needlework ABC's from Little House Needleworks for my Birthday.
I'm using the Crescent Colours that come in the pack and Dr Smith's Tonic from Sparklies
