Gifted Gorgeousness July

I am a couple of days late but here is what  I have gifted in the last month and received.
I took part in a Christmas Ornament Exchange with HOE.
This is what I sent to Carol in the USA a Lizzie Kate pattern called Noël.

 I received this beautiful ornament in the post from Gabriele in Australia,  it is from Country Cottage Needleworks stitched in recommended threads, 

At the end of June when I went away with my mother for a stitching weekend I made myself a  project bag using a piece of stitching I had done from Little House Needlework.

I had also made myself a thread Wardrobe which I had seen on a Blog.

I also made myself a matching thread catcher I decided to make my Mother a project bag as well this matched a little bag I had previously made her.

I made quite a few of my thread catchers and gave them away to the ladies we sat with,

One of the ladies sent me a surprise in the post as a thank-you for the thread catcher this is what I received.

Thanks for taking part in GG this month. The ornies are lovely but I am most intrigued by your thread wardrobe! What a clever idea. I suppose you could add more rings for more threads. Very useful for traveling projects.

Those ornies are lovely - well done to all! I absolutely love your bags. I use the thread catcher you gave me every time I stitch - don't know how I managed without it!

Gorgeous post. I love the ornies. I add ribbon to the thread catchers I make with xmas fabric and we hang them on the tree with a couple of chocolates in! Try them, they make cute little xmas gifts too!
