Gifted Gorgeousness January

Hello dear friends and followers,

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and a good start into the new year!

Today is the day to post "Gifted Gorgeousness", a SAL from Jo over at Serendipitous Stitching.
It is all about using stash you have been gifted or stitching pieces you plan to give to someone, a lovely idea.

I have not been at least as busy as Jo, but let me show you what I've managed so far:

Sue Hillis Designs, Pillage and Plunder
This is a piece DH has asked for to display in his new office. He is now self-employed and can decorate his office the way he likes :-)  It is ready to be pressed, the charm sewn on and framed, which I hope to do at the weekend.

And there is another piece of stitching, which is most likely to accompany me all year long.

Mystic Stitch "Coffee Time"
This is going to be a present for friends of mine, which I should have finished ages ago. It was one of the main reasons to join "Gifted Gorgeousness", because I hope that it will spur me on to finally finish it this year.

I'm planning to frame another picture at the weekend, so stay tuned, I will hopefully be able to show my framed pieces to you on Monday!

Time to go to bed now, I hope you are all having a wonderful day!



  1. Love this pirate ! Does he sail on Danube ? Grüße.

  2. Dieser Pirat gefällt mir gut und dein Mann wird ihn in seinem Büro lieben. Das andere Teil für deine Freunde ist ja schon weit fortgeschritten, bin mal gespannt, wie es weitergeht.

  3. What a wonderful pirate piece! Yes! Keep stitching on the coffee!!

  4. That's a great for DH's office - I'm hoping my DH can work from home a bit more soon (although he's not self-employed)

  5. Nice pirate. I've got one of Sues somewhere. Note to self to dig it out.. Your MS will look staggering when it's finished. God luck with it

  6. Thank you for taking part in GG this month.
    The pirate chart is so much fun. I have seen this stitched for a workplace before.
    The second one is amazing but Oh that background! I think I would have cheated and used a beige fabric!
    We will certainly be cheering you on each month for that project.

  7. Love them both......yes, this is the year for finishing the coffee one!

  8. Lovely stitching. The pirate is fabulous
