If instead of a gem, or even a flower, we should cast the gift of a loving thought into the heart of a friend, that would be giving as the angels give

Umm, yes it would appear that I have signed up for yet another SAL!!
This one is hosted by Jo from Serendipitous Stitching. Jo has come with a great idea for a SAL for 2015 and when I read about this on Kaye's blog the other day I just had to join in!
This Gifted Gorgeousness SAL is all about stitching and blogging - something that I can do, and something that I have promised myself I will do more of in 2015! Jo's explanation of the SAL is:
"I am sure we have all benefited from the generosity of our fellow bloggers and here is your chance to show your appreciation for that generousness by doing what we do best - stitching and blogging about it!"
The rules are very simple and are listed below:
What is eligible for the Gifted Gorgeousness SAL?
Any chart/kit which was given to you
Any chart/kit which you won in a giveaway
Any chart/kit which you bought using a voucher given to you/won by you
Anything stitched on fabric received in the above ways
Anything stitched with floss received in the above ways
Anything embellished or finished with items received in the above ways
Anything which is intended as a gift or prize for another person
Anything else you can somehow shoehorn with word "gift" into!
When do we post?
On the 15th of each month. Because (a) there are plenty of end of months SALs already and (b) it is 2015 so we should remember the 15th!
So now that I have signed up for this new SAL, what am I going to stitch first?
Do you remember a post I did in June 2013 when Kaye came over to Perth for business and we met for lunch? When we had lunch we swapped gifts and Kaye gave me these lovely charts (picture below) so for my first entry into the Gifted Gorgeousness SAL I am going to stitch one of these..... not sure which one yet - might have to do the old eenie meenie miney mo trick to choose!

Til next time, happy stitching
