Gifted Gorgeousness January 2020

Welcome to my January 20220 Gifted Gorgeousness Post. If you don't already know, Gifted Gorgeousness is a SAL devised by Jo, which allows us to show off pretty much anything that we can describe in a sentence using the words gift and craft. For full details see Jo's blog here.

Kicking off the Gifted Gorgeousness Year is always the easy post because of  Christmas. I already posted about all the wonderful craft related gifts I received in my Happy New Year post, so this post will be about various things that I made for other people.
Lets see... I knitted the girls a hat each. Pattern is "Head Sock" from The Purl Bug. Here is Eloise wearing hers on Christmas Day at the beach. 

I forgot to get a picture of Naomi's hat, but here she is wearing a little devore velvet slip dress I made her. 

The pattern is New Look 6347. Double GG points on this project as I was gifted the fabric by Minerva
I also made them a silver necklace each, (it's just the lighting that makes them look gold)

I made some of these star shaped fabric mats in a variety of colours and patterns for a few of my friends. 

And finally, a little Year of the Rat ornament I made Naomi for her Chinese Zodiac collection

Christine, you have been so very busy with your giftmaking - love the necklaces - you are very clever.

What lovely items, I'm sure both hats were loved, great dress and necklace. Your table mats are great, mine sits perfectly on our dining table under my vase of flowers, thank you.

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

Thanks for taking part in GG this month. I love all the Christmas gifts you made. The dress is particularly lovely. I always liked Devore fabrics.
How many of the Chinese years have you made so far?

Julie said...

The girls look great, the dress is stunning (even better the fabric was free) and the hat the perfect headwear for a beach walk.
I love my mat, thank you again x

Oh how clever to make jewellery! Those necklaces are gorgeous. I'm enjoying the fluffy pom pom on Eloise's hat (and the hat too!) x
