Welcome to the Gifted Gorgeousness link-up post! The link-up date will continue to be the 15th of each month but I will keep the linky open until the end of each month so you have plenty of time to join in.
The format remains EXACTLY the same as last year so I'm sure you are all aware of what can be included - gifts to and from you; charts, fabric or threads; shoe-horns welcome!
I have been such a busy bee (or Gizzy Gee if we really want to keep the GG theme!) this month.
First of all I completed CCN's Poinsettia Cottage (a giveaway prize from Gaynor):
And of course, one major change! I didn't stitch the square border or the filled in background. None of the other fairies have a square border and by using a beautiful hand-dyed fabric like this you don't need to stitch the background either. I extended the waves on the right and the top so they are more curved. On the original they were cut flat by the border.
And now over to you - Here is the place for you to link up so we can see what Gifted Gorgeousness you have been stitching so far this year. Please use your name or your blog name in the field NOT the words "February Update" so I can easily see who has linked up this month.
Finally, we have a special Giveaway this month, sponsored by the lovely Gillie from Random Thoughts from Abroad (see, no sarky nicknames when she's giving us stuff!). Last month she completed a gorgeous design by Jardin Prive:
