Gifted Gorgeousness - January Post

Good evening!

I hope you are all well and keeping warm. It's very chilly here is Scotland at the moment with high winds and promises of train disruption again tomorrow so getting to work could be fun in the morning.

I just want to quickly say hello and welcome to my new followers. I hope you enjoy my blog :) If I don't already please leave me a comment with your blog address so I can have a look.

Now, today is the 15th (!!) So that means it is time for the first Gifted Gorgeousness check in post. If you don't know what I am talking about then click here to find out more.

First up is my Tribal Orca. This one is been stitched on fabric which was gifted to me and I just love it. I will definitely be buying some more! A lot of people have been admiring the fabric, and you know I love to enable so this is Deep Water by Colour Cascade Fabrics.


Next, and ok I will admit this one could be stretching it a bit in fitting under the SAL, but our wonderful host is also quite skilled in doing this too...


This is my start of my first Christmas ornament for the year. Which is a time for GIFTS...right? See what I did there ;) Not much to see yet!

Until next time!

  13. Thank you for taking part in GG this month.
    The fabric for Orka is amazing, there are so many talented dyers out there.
    Hmm, I feel a bug shoehorn will be needed for the second stitch!
