First Gifted Gorgeousness of 2016

It's the start of a whole new year of Jo's Gifted Gorgeousness SAL, where once a month share our crafted gifts, gifted crafts, or anything else vaguely gift related, and despite the frankly shameful state of my last couple of posts from last year I'm going to join in again this year.
January's offering is this


A little stitched pillow featuring LHN's Potted Poinsettias, the chart for which was a gift from Sally.
It is stitched with Crescent Colours - Sassy Brass and Ruby Slippers, and Gentle Art - Avocado.
As Sally was gifted the chart herself before she very kindly passed it on to me I thought I'd continue in the spirit of giving and pass the chart on to someone else. Perhaps it could become a new travelling pattern - "The Perambulating Poinsettia"- what do you think?
If you'd like to be the next to stitch it just pop a note in the comments and I'll draw a name at the end of the month.

That's beautiful, and I love how you finished it off! I love the idea of a Perambulating Poinsettia but will pass this time. I've just been making a stash list and it's enormous!

A beautiful little pillow. I'd love to be entered into the draw for a chance of sending the Perambulating Poinsettia around the world is I was lucky enough to be drawn.

Thanks for taking part in GG this month and well done on all 12 posts last year!
I am tempted by the Perambulating Poinsettia but think I will Pursue its Progress around the Planet until November when I can Put it in for P in the Alphabet Club!

It's beautiful. Really pretty. I'm glad you are offering to someone else. I'm doing the same on my blog: wasn't sure if it was ok or not. Please don't enter me into the draw: it will be lovely to see where it ends up though!
