The Last Gifted Gorgeousness of 2017

And also the hardest, because it's December, and whilst I've made tons of stuff for gifts I can't show any of it yet!
(If you're not sure what Gifted Gorgeousness is then pop over to visit Serendipitous Stitching - the blog of Jo, who invented the concept  of showing off our gift related crafting every month, and runs the SAL - for an explanation of the rules (though to quote Captain Barbossa they're "more what you'd call guidelines than actual rules")
Returning to my annual December quandary, I think these might be safe to show: three little stitched gift tags for the family's Christmas presents.

Double GG points because the tags themselves were a cover gift with Cross Stitcher magazine. I used an alphabet chart I found on the internet instead of the Christmas motifs that came with the kit, and subbed in some of my own threads to get the colour schemes I wanted.
And then there is this.

These little knitted #christmasangels have been appearing throughout the village this week, and the other day I went outside to find some wonderful person had hung one on my door handle. More information about the project can be found here

Thanks for taking part in GG this year with all your wonderful crafts and following the "guidelines"!
Great idea for those tags, I have a set of them too.
Lovely angel and a nice surprise. By co-incidence I received a tatted angel this weekend too. She's going on my tree which is finally up!

Lovely, useful gift tags and the gifted angel is a wonderful idea, nice surprise.

I know that feeling about December and not being able to show stuff...I have a few things that, for reasons, I have had done since January and still can't show!
I love the idea of randomly appearing Christmas angels.
