Gifted Gorgeousness - December Edition

It's Gifted Gorgeousness time again, the blog hop organised by Jo from Serendipitous Stitching where we get to show off our gift related crafts and stash.
I've got a little more to show this month. First up the Needlecraft Haven Ornament Exchange.
This is the beautiful sparkly ornament and little beaded angel I received from Gill

And here is the one I sent to Tina

Sally had her birthday this week, and I made her this little coin purse from an upcycled souvenir tea towel.

Still on the subject of upcycling, here is a bag I made from scraps cut from old jeans. This is for a Christmas exchange organised through Facebook, so I think I'm safe in showing it on here.

I won't show the other bits I made yet as they were more specific to the recipient.

Thanks for taking part in GG this year. The blingy ornie is lovely and your finished heart is exquisite.
Great denim bag too.

What perfect gifts! The ornaments are both lovely, a great exchange. What great upcycling ideas too!

Great exchange pieces. The little heart is so sweet, I just love it.
A lovely purse that you made for Sally's birthday.
And wow, a bag made of jeans scraps, how creative.

Carol said...

Oh, that recycled jeans bag is so cute, Christine--you did a beautiful job on it :) And I'm sure Sally loves her little coin purse, too. Both ornaments are so sweet--you have a talented lot of friends!

Merry Christmas to you and your family!

You are so clever Christine. You've made beautiful things. I love my purse.

Merry Christmas!
