Gifted Georgeousness - March

Remember me?

I've been meaning to write a post to say hello, but the time kept evading me!

I'm losing track, am I reporting on February, or March?


If Gifted Gorgeousness is new to you pop over to Jo’s blog - Serendipidous Stitching - to read more about it: HERE


In February I was making a pincushion for Bea of Beaquilter as part of her pincushion swap.

Because of my dead sewing machine (and the fact that I was scared of the new one) I was late sending Bea her pincushion, [oh, it might also have been because I stitched the pincushion entirely by hand]. Unfortunately, the post took ages too! But I see from pictures on her blog that my parcel finally arrived! Yay!!! (Hope you like the pincushion Bea! and I'm sorry to have been so late!)

 I couldn't resist making a thread catcher to go with the pincushion:

This is how I'm going to use mine

Despite such a busy month this was all I had to share for Gifted Gorgeousness.

STOP PRESS: I have just received this lovely pincushion from Margun (no blog) from Norway .... Thank You Margun.

I will be over to visit everyone, but I just wanted to touch base here so you don't think I've totally given up blogging! Tee hee!




Love you, been missing you!
Keep in touch!
Hugs,
