Gifted Gorgeousness July

Oops, a little late this month with Gifted Gorgeousness - the blog hop organised by Jo of Serendipitous Stitching where we show off our gifts and gift related projects.
I've got a couple of gift related projects and an exchange gift to show this month.
First up, I finished the little top-down cropped cardigan I was knitting for Eloise, which I showed you part done in the last GG post.

Secondly, also for Eloise, a cross stitched cuff.

Treble Points for this one. 1) I made it as a gift. 2) It was made using a cover gift from Cross Stitcher magazine. 3) The cover gift was very kindly gifted to me by Jo because I'd already used the one from my copy of the magazine.
And finally an exchange gift. This is an  exchange with a difference organised through Needlecraft Haven. The idea being your secret stitching partner sends you a chart and the materials to make it up and you find out who your partner was when everyone reveals their finished items in September.
This is the chart and materials pack I received. Isn't it adorable?

For obvious reasons I can't show the one I sent out.

Thanks for taking part in GG this month. I wondered if the cuff would feature this month, of course it's worth the triple points!
Love the cropped cardigan, great colours.
