Gifted Gorgeousness for May

Is it time for Gifted Gorgeousness already? This month has just flown by.
In case you don't know Gifted Gorgeousness is a Blog Hop run by Jo of Serendipitous Stitching where we show anything we can even vaguely describe as gift-related  our gifted crafts and crafted gifts.
This month I have two projects to show. The first is this little hoop with embroidery and felt flowers which I made as a birthday gift for my friend.

The second is actually some cross stitch! Yes, honestly, I've actually completed a piece of cross stitch - must be the first time in absolutely ages. This is "Bless This House - Mos Eisley Edition" by Hard Core Stitch Corps, stitched on Crafty Kitten Belfast linen in Champagne Bubbles. It is going to be a gift for my daughter Eloise, I just need to get it framed.

Two very pretty pieces, and finishes too!
Was the hoop from a pattern, or did you design it?
I like the border-like patterns on Eloise’s!
Great stitching!
Hugs, Barbara xx

Two lovely projects! I'm sure both your friend and your daughter will love them.

Great finishes! I'm glad you have the reference for the 2nd piece, now I know where it comes from!

Thanks for taking part in GG this month. The wreath is lovely; Happy Whatever!
Also love the Bless This design. Maybe if my son ever moves out I will stitch it for him!

Two pretty gifts! The stitching made me laugh :) I'm sure Eloise will love it, Christine!

The flower hoop is lovely, and the cross stitch wonderfully nerdy. Love it!
