Gifted Gorgeousness Giveaway

I'm late..but at least I'm here. I've missed a few gifted gorgeousnesses so hopefully today I can make up for it.

Crafting wise, I've been trying to frame and finish as many of my completed stitching items as possible. And boy, do I hate framing.

First up is The Coven of the Year.  I was given the frame by someone having a clear out and my wonderful husband sprayed it black.  It looks perfect.

It was stitched on Pomona evenweave from Chromatic Alchemy.

I finished a cardigan for my granddaughter which only just fits her!  She will be visiting this week so I will be taking measurements. I'd asked my daughter again and again to let me know her arm length etc but never mind. It will last a few weeks and then be put away ready for the next grandchild.  My mum was kind enough to send me pretty purple sparkly buttons.  I'm not sure if you can see them clearly here.

Now for the giveaway.  I finished a new chart for M'Lady. 

Sorry, haven't had a chance to frame it.
M'Lady fancies a little sea bathing, much to her maid's horror.

In M'Lady's day, one did not show even the slightest amount of ankle so swimming costumes protected one's modesty.

Unfortunately poor Daisy has to help M'Lady dress: apparently her costume is easier to get on (dry) than it is to take off (wet).

It's stitched on DMC Linen ( I can't get to the exact fabric as my son has locked his bedroom because we have a little visitor tomorrow and we put my craft things in his room) but any fabric with a creamy yellow colour that DMC blanc will show up on would be suitable.
Available from retailers soon!

But, if you would like a pdf version of this chart, just comment and I will put all comments in a random number generator and will chose a winner next week!

Happy stitching!!


  1. Lovely projects all of them. That baby's sweater is absolutely adorable. Love that color of purple.

  2. Just to let you know that you've linked up in the wrong place! You're went on the main sign-up page, not the June linky page. Which is here -

  3. Your framing job looks fantastic! I like the Pomona fabric too.
    A sweet cardigan to be handed on.
    Sea Bathing is so funny - I love her costume!

  4. You've done a great job with finishing and finish-finishing stuff!

  5. What a fantastic coven piece - the frame looks brilliant. Such lovely colours for the cardigan - at least she will get some wear out of it before it is passed on! Your seabathing design is really great x
