I have two gifted finishes to share with you today, and some lovely gifts that I received in the post last week!
Last night, just in time for this post, I finished this lovely stitch which was gifted to me by Sally. I really enjoyed stitching this, the deep pink (Cherry Tomato by Crescent Colors) is one of my favourite over-dyed threads.
Comfort by Little House Needleworks
Stitched on Cloud Brown 28 count evenweave by Sew It All
using recommended Crescent Colors threads

In the spirit of Gifted Gorgeousness I am going to pass this chart on. If you would like to be entered, please leave a comment below saying you would like to stitch it, and I will draw a winner this coming Sunday 20 March.
I also stitched this little design for a charity hoping to make a wall-hanging to share with Syrian stitchers. You can read all about it here. The design is by Mr X Stitch and didn't take more than a couple of hours.

Now to show you the gifts I have received! Last year Maggee and I discovered that we share a birthday, and decided to have a birthday exchange. Maggee's parcel for me arrived last week and I have been truly spoiled!
Firstly this gorgeous biscornu, the central button is a vintage one from Maggee's mum's stash...
Next there was this beautiful Winter ornament, as our birthdays are in winter...
And then there was a lovely thread catcher - I have tried to make these before myself without much success! This is a lovely bright one, perfect for Spring!
And finally this gorgeous chart which may just feature in a GG post in the not too distant future as I can't wait to stitch it!
Maggee also included the threads you can see in the photo. I can't decide what combination to do, but pink and chocolate has to be one of my favourite combinations ever.
Thanks again Maggee, you really spoiled me and I'm looking forward to another exchange next year!
