Summer Postcard Blog Hop and July Gifted Gorgeousness 2018

Jo of Serendipitous Stitching, this talented and well organised person who gives us the initiative to stitch more and combine stitching and blogging gave us one more challenge. This time we had to e-mail her a postcard of something that we have stitched and it is of a summer theme. This stitched piece photo goes out to a fellow stitcher as a postcard digitally and then you receive one too. The Summer Postcard Blog Hop goes round all summer and you still have time to participate. Here is the link to Jo's blog if you want to join in.

I have already received my digital summer card.
It is from dear June of  butterfly wings blog which I have been following for some years now. June stitches beautifully but she also puts photos of beautiful flowers from her garden and lots more.
You can visit her blog here.
Here is the card I received.
 Isn't it so very beautiful?
 And here's what June wrote for me.

Wishing you were here , It’s hot and the ice cream is flowing.
Enjoy your Summer, have fun ,  hugs Butterfly
As it is the middle of July it is also Gifted Gorgeousness time. Again Jo of Serendipitous Stitching organizes this. We have to show things we stitch for gifts or stitching gifts we have received and used.
 I haven't been stitching much lately.
So I only continued on my Halloween Happiness piece which is a gift from two sides. I won the chart on Jo's giveaway and the fabric I am stitching on is a giveaway win from Brigitte from the blog At Brigitte's Place.
This is where I had stopped back in April.
And here are two photos of this month's achievement! LOL!

Also this month the Summer craftpod arrived. I decided to gift myself a whole year subscription so this is the first of the four I will receive in the next twelve months and I am so so happy about it.
This month the craftpod box included so many beautiful things I really loved them all. There is even a cross stitch pattern by Lucy from Attic24.
I am sure there is still time to order your kit or subscription!
Well that will be all for this month. I am sorry I only write once a month in my blog but I really don't feel obliged to do it any more.So I will only blog whenever I feel I have to say something. I am more of an Instagram friend so if you want you can follow me there under the name ariadnesky.
