It's a bit past the 15th, so a little late for the official check-in. Fortunately, Jo keeps the check-in open for a few days to allow us stragglers to catch up. If you click on the Gifted Gorgeousness 2016 picture, it should take you to the official rules page. The Reader's Digest version is - stitch with something, pattern, thread, needles or fabric, that someone else gave you and show it off to the rest of the world to say "thank you" or if you're stitching something that will be a gift, you can show it off here.
Stitching has been a bit slow but I do have two pieces that fit the criteria. The first is:
Christmas Presence This was one of the 2015 Heaven and Earth Designs SAL pieces. As it was a freebie, I am counting it as a gift from the charter/designer.
My second piece is another Heaven and Earth Designs piece, It's About Time. Kate at Needles and Haystacks gifted this pattern to me.
And that's all I have for Gifted Gorgeousness this month. These are also the only two pieces I worked on for . Not as much as I would have liked but time just got away from me this weekend. I'm all packed for my trip. The weather is supposed to be miserably hot in the central US this week and I've seen predictions for 101+ F for Wednesday - so glad we'll be inside.
