Gifted Gorgeousness for October

Gifted Gorgeousness day has rolled round again (Gifted Gorgeousness is a monthly blog hop organised by Jo from Serendipitous Stitching, where we show off our gift related crafts and craft related gifts)
Once again this will be a cross stitch free posting, (those of you who come here looking for a cross stitch blog must be getting pretty fed up by now, I promise I'll try harder next time)
This month I have made each of my daughters a skirt from an upcycled t-shirt. This one is Naomi's

And this one is Eloise's (completed on a rather damper day, hence the somewhat less attractive location for the photoshoot)

Also I don't think I've shown you this before, it is a woodburned piece that Naomi made for me in the summer using an offcut of the wood her dad had used to build himself a set of speakers. (I sew things, he builds speakers...)

As you can see she knows how to appeal to my inner geek.

A very talented family you are.

My brother is in San Francisco and just sent me a pic of him sitting on a replica Iron Throne - if he thinks he's king of the family, he can think again, i'm the oldest lol.

You are a talented family. I love the skirts and your daughter has made you a beautiful gift.

I love that your daughters have inherited your creativity, Christine--such fun finishes all around :)

Lovely skirts ! The Woodart by your daughter looks great!

Beautiful and interesting skirts.
The wood burning project is beautiful, I like the way the wood is offset and square or round, it adds a very interesting look to the piece.

Thanks for taking part in GG this month. Love those skirts, I would definitely have worn them a few years ago!
The map is amazing! We have just started Lord of the Rings as bedtime reading. Any guesses how long it will take? 30 minutes out loud 6 nights of the week.
