Today is the 15th and that means it's time for my Gifted Gorgeousness update. If you don't know what the Gifted Gorgeousness SAL is, please head over to Serendipitous Stitching to read all about it.
First up today is a gift I received from the lovely Sarah in Stitches when I was the giveaway winner on her blog recently. I have shamelessly pinched the photo from her blog of all the goodies she sent me as I have already used all the vintage cotton reels to put my ribbons on!
Frederick the Literate Dimensions kit, vintage cotton reels, fabric and threads and best of all...
This gorgeous pear made by Sarah herself!
Thank you Sarah, I already have plans for the fabric and threads and have no doubt that Frederick will be putting in an appearance later this year on another Gifted Gorgeousness post!
Next up is a finish (woohoo!) of one of my new starts for Debbie's Crazy January Challenge. This beautiful chart was gifted to me by Mii Stitch as part of the Tutti Frutti exchange last year. I really really enjoyed stitching this and it's even more beautiful in real life than in the cover photo.

A little gardener...
Those bees are so cute!
Thank you Mii, I really loved stitching this.
