August Gifted Georgeouness and TUSAL

Hi Blogger Friends.  GIFTED GORGEOUSNESS is being hosted by Jo of Serendipitous Stitching.  We all have projects that have been gifted to us or pieces that we are doing as gifts.   This SAL is so we can work on those and post on the 15th.
Pretty Mini Paris by Satsuma Street.  The magazine was gifted to me by our awesome hostess Jo.  I stitched the windmill.


TUSAL This is where we save our (ORTS) or floss and yarn ends and post a picture of them on the New Moon.  This is being hosted by Sharon of It's Daffycat.  Don't tell anybody, but Kate and I are up to 14 different projects for the April challenge next year.  I have been doing more crocheting than cross stitching the last couple weeks.

Yarn ORTS

Floss ORTS

Look at the RAK with all its lovely gifts.  This was received from the super duper Kaye of Kitten Stitching.
Isn't that an awesome nail file?



Thanks for looking.  Linda

Thanks for taking part in GG this month. What a kind and generous friend to send you the lovely magazine! I expect she really wants to start stitching Paris herself now she's seen your version!

Pretty Little Paris is really cute. Love the color of the fabric! What a great gift you got from Kaye. We need to see what you've been crocheting! Sometimes, you just have to switch it up.
