Gifted Gorgeousness - December Edition

It's the last Gifted Gorgeousness of 2017! I hope you've all had good years full of gifts made and received and stitched with/on. Check out how we've all tried to join in over at Jo's smashing blog!

I haven't been getting a ton of stitching done, and I gave up on Frosty Friends as gifts for DD's teachers. I settled on towels instead and finished this one recently:

This is a free design from Kincavel Krosses. There are lots of great Xmas designs, some smalls, so if you're still looking for a pattern, check there. I stitched it on an ivory towel with an Aida band with DMC 4520. 

The other teacher will get this towel that I finished in 2015 I think:

make that early 2016 by the album it's in. :)  This is from Cross Stitch for the Holidays 2011 edition and I used the charted threads. 

I also received a gift for Stashmas from the Cross Stitch Forum:

There's an annual Stashmas exchange and I had a great time this year! I forgot to take a photo, but this is what I sent my exchange recipient:

I finished November and got it sent off a little bit late:

and as you saw in the last post, December was finished:

and the gift for my Xmas-loving friend:

plus the progress on Covered Bridge:

and Fishing:

I still forgot to take another photo of Frosty Friends, so I will try and get a photo at some point. :) There's a little bit of time left in December to try and get this little kit finished for DD, so I'm going to start tonight. Nothing like last minute! 

Happy Stitching and Happy Holidays if I don't get back on here before Xmas!



  1. Wow you have been busy! I'm not surprised you had to change plans on the Frosty Friends. They are lovely but a lot of work in them! Good luck with finishing DD's gift.

  2. Great gifts for your dd teachers!
    You have been so productive :) Both stitching pieces, the bridge and fishing, are coming along really nicely. They are almost done!

  3. You have been busy! Lovely stitching and gift exchange. The kit you are going to stitch for your DD is very cute:)

  4. Awesome gifts and and nice progress Tiffany.


  5. You have been busy! I can't even imagine stitching stuff for my kid's teachers (if I had a kid that is...other than the four-legged kind).

  6. Nice gifts and exchange goodies. Stitched towels are such nice gifts. I used to stitch towels quite a bit in the past. You're keeping pretty busy! Happy Holidays to you and yours!

    1. Thank you! I did a fair bit as well, this is the first time in a while. I hope you and your family had a great holiday season!

  7. Gosh you have been busy! Thanks for taking part in GG this year, you got a full house!
    I stitched gifts for my older son's Primary School teachers and my younger son's teachers so far. He changes teacher every two years so far so I've only had to stitch two things! Although I did some for his preschool and Nursery teachers.

  8. Wow, you have been busy, Tiffany! Great progress on Covered Bridge and Fishing!
    Love the key fob, and sentiment, tee hee!
    Good luck with DD’s stitching!
    Happy Christmas!

  9. Wow! Your needles have been on FIRE!

  10. Busy busy. I hope you are enjoying it. Good luck!!

  11. A post full of such delights, you've been busy recently.

  12. You sure had a lot of gift stitching going on in December! It probably was a good idea to settle for somethign quicker for the teachers, I'm sure they still appreciated it.


Thanks for any comments!
