Gifted Gorgeousness June 2018

Jo of Serendipitous Stitching organizes a link-up party where we show stitch gifts we made to give or items that were gifted to us and are related to stitching and sewing.So on the 15th of each month we can link up to her blog. This is my first year taking part in this. Thanks Jo for the chance and the inspiration.
I didn't manage much this month either.
First a little card, a freebie from an old cross stitch magazine which I made for dear Katerina.
Katerina is an inspirational person, a person like a beacon for us all.
She wrote her second book so I went to the book presentation and wanted to make something for her.
Here is her book which in English means The Paper Swan along with a watercolour by my friend Ian in England.
The book includes 13 short stories from Katerina's real life experiences as a psychologist and drama therapist in old people's homes, hospices and rehab centres abroad and in Greece.
Here's the card I stitched for her.
You can read Katerina's blog KaPa Me without you...tea without a biscuit in Greek.It was great meeting her in real life at last!
I gave away the pattern and leftover threads of the kit to Adopt a wip page on facebook.
Then I made this bookmark for my friend Anna who got married. I found the pattern on pinterest and unfortunately can't tell who the designer is. I also made her this paper card.
Finally another gift I received from dear Green Bag Lady. I was lucky enough to be chosen for these beautiful bags for my shopping. I have been using fabric bags for years but now that plastic bags are only store bought and are not given for free at supermarkets I really enjoy using her bags at my shopping. You can enter her giveaways for free on facebook or on her blog.
So that's all for this month!
