Gifted Gorgeousness - October

Just squeezing in for Gifted Gorgeousness this month. As my 'show and tell' this month is all Halloween related,  if I don't do it now it will seem very out-of-date come mid November. As always for further information on Gifted Gorgeousness (what it is and how it works), please visit Jo of Serendipitous Stitching.

Some of this you will have already seen from my Halloween Blog Hop post. First up is the ornament I stitched for Mouse as part of Friendly Stitchers Halloween exchange.
Boo! - Brittercup Designs
Fabric: 28ct Cashel Light Mocha
Thread: Suggested DMC threads with the border
completed in Carrie's Threads 'Halloween'

In exchange I received this package of goodies from DJ of Tickled Pink in Stitches . DJ also made the Halloween themed scissor fob that came with the scissors. Thank you, DJ.

To finish - I finally completed the needleroll that I was gifted from Sally of Stitchyangel's Treasures in her November giveaway last year. Thank you Sally, this was a fun stitch. I would now like to pass this pattern on, so I will do a separate giveaway post for this and the Brittercup Boo! design later this week. You can start your Halloween stitching early for next year ☺.

Frightful Halloween - Shepherd's Bush
Fabric: 32ct Belfast lilac

  1. Lovely exchange and thank you for the letter too, great needleroll!

  2. love both exchanges but the needleroll is gorgeous and one I have not got, done quite a few of SB needlerolls. I have not seen the Brittercup one either.

  3. Such great Halloween pieces and a lovely exchange. Just what a GG post needs :))

  4. Great needle roll and fun Halloween stitch.

  5. Great exchanges, I recently received the Boo! chart in a Halloween exchange, i'd never come across it before and now this is the 3rd time I've come across it in as many weeks :-)

  6. Thank you for mentioning that group. I just send in a request to join. I was looking for such a group for a long time now. The groups on facebook are way to big and they don't do exchanges.
    I like what you send to mouse and also what you recieved. That needlerol is so wonderful.

  7. Thanks for taking part in GG last month! I'm still catching up on my blog reading. Love the spooky stitching here.


Thank you for reading and leaving a comment.

It is lovely to hear what you think.
