As the song from Gilmore Girls says “So welcome to my little corner of the world”. It’s all about me and my crafting – focusing around my love for stitching and sewing along with anything else that catches my eye. So welcome, grab a coffee and happy reading.

Very late Gifted Gorgeousness

Each month Jo from Serendipitous Stitching hosts a SAL where we stitch using something that is gifted to us - fabric, threads, finishing bits, kit or chart or that is to be gifted to someone else.

It's one of those months where I've stitched 4 things and all but one are secrets at the moment! I'm stitching is for a birthday present next week. I've given myself until Monday to finish that and then I can make it up Tuesday. It's a fab design from an old cross stitcher mag, bigger than I thought though! Here it is kitted up and ready to start...

I've been stitching things for my Pay It Forward's. I'll share the completed one in a minute.  I'm using mouseloft kits for my PIF's and they're coming on well. The mouselofts are my travel projects and you can often find me in the pub stitching with a pot of tea whilst I wait for it to be time to collect my small people from school. 

So here is my first completed PIF for my pen pal Janet. Can you see a bit of a theme! The ribbon and backing fabric were both gifted to me and I have a feeling this was one of a few mouselofts that hubby brought me a while back. 

It was sent with some stationary too from paperchase (love that shop!) 

Hopefully I'll have a bit more to share in my next post as I've been making a granny square or two! r
