Gifted Gorgeousness July 2015 and a new giveaway winner!

I know, I know, I'm late but only by 4 days!

Before I start with Gifted Gorgeousness, I would like to announce a new winner of the Wildlife book I offered here back at the start of July.  The winner is...

LESLEY!!!

Sadly the previous winner did not contact me despite two shout-outs so I have drawn another winner.  Lesley please would you email me with your postal address and I will get the chart book posted to you.

Gifted Gorgeousness is hosted by Jo of Serendipitous Stitching.  On the 15th of each month we share piccies of anything to do with gifting...gifts we have received, gifts we are giving, something with the word "Gift" on it - you get the idea!

So this month I have two finishes to share with you. This chart came to me via the Travelling Treasure Chest which was started by Kim of Wisdom with Needle and Thread.  I wonder what happened to the chest?  I haven't seen it for a while.  The idea was that you would take out 2 or 3 charts or kits that you liked and replace with 2 or 3 of your own, and send it on its way!

I chose this little Lizzie*Kate limited edition kit, "Flowers", which included the fabric to complete the design.  I changed some of the colours as I didn't have all of the recommended over-dyed floss.  I will probably finish this as a little pillow...


Flowers by Lizzie*Kate
Started 1st July 2015, finished 5th July 2015
Stitched with WDW, GAST and Crescent Colors threads

I am also pleased to report that the envelope I sent to Kim for Mii Stitch's Mail Art Exchange has been received - I can't share a photo as I forgot to take one but you can see it on Kim's blog here together with the gorgeous envelope Kim sent to Albena.

Have a lovely week everyone

Justine

Your mailart was just gorgeous! The Downton Abby fabric was such a great touch~ Your stitch is great too, I like buttons that fit in with a piece. Was that part of the kit or a Justine Exclusive? :D
