Gifted Gorgeousness for April

It's time for Gifted Gorgeousness - the blog hop where we share our gift related craft news - for more details see Jo's blog, Serendipitous Stitching
I've got a variety of things to show this month. First the Easter Exchange from Needlecraft Haven.
I received this beautiful ornament and delicious Easter goodies from Deb

and sent this ornament to Julie

The design was adapted from a larger sampler in Cross Stitcher magazine and I used the same lollipop finish as I did for the ornament in the previous post.
Next up a little baby jumper I knitted as my friend is expecting her first grandchild. The pattern and wool are by Sirdar.

An Italian Cross Stitch Magazine that Naomi sent for me

And finally, a geeky little embroidery hoop I stitched for Eloise, based on one of her favourite films.

Extra blog bonus points for anyone who knows what the film is.

Lovely GG this month, Christine - no idea what the movie is, though.:(

Lots of beautiful gifts. I love seeing magazines from other countries. I have a couple I picked up years ago when we went to either Mallorca or Feutreventura many years ago.

Lovely to see the NH Exchange pieces again, both so beautiful. I have no idea what the film is but what a great idea to cross stitch a crossword!

Julie said...

I love my Easter lollipop.
Sweet little jumper.
No idea about the film.

Elfie said...

Lovely projects. The Easter egg is fantastic, and I love the baby knitting. Can't work out the film name, but Lord of the Rings keeps popping into my head. Love the crossword project.

A great month, both giving- and receiving-wise! I love your mini-sheep sampler lollipop.

Carol said...

What nice Easter exchange! I love both Deb's finish and your cute one for Julie. And I'm sure all of those chocolates that arrived made your day :)

Brigitte said...

These egg ornaments are both so nice. Just perfect for an Easter exchange. And such a cool crossword puzzle - but I have no idea about what movie it represents.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Thanks for taking part in GG this month. Love the NH exchange, two beautiful ornies.
The Italian magazine is a wonderful perk to having a travelling daughter.
No idea about the film, she is too young to remember Trainspotting?

I loved the egg ornament you sent!AriadnefromGreece!

You had quite the fun exchange! That looks like a deliciously dangerous bag of goodies from Deb haha. :D

I've no clue about the film but after some Googling I will guess Hot Fuzz?

Great stitching and gifts, especially the chocs from Deb!
The Italian magazine looks interesting. No idea about the film!
