May Gifted Gorgeousness

Hello again. It is GG (Gifted Gorgeousness) time. You can read more about it in Jo's of 
Serendipitous stitching blog post where you can find all the linked-up blogs too.
Unfortunately this month I haven't stitched much. I finished my craftpod hoop.
And I hang it on my craftpod hoop wall.
I also stitched very little on the April bookmark on the Bucilla Flowers of the month bookmark kit my friend Marabeth gifted me with.

This is another gift I received although not cross stitch related. I hope I will stitch a Santoro girl one day. This notebook and bookmark was a gift by my best friend Gia.

But I can't possibly leave you with so little. So here you can see my Easter candle handmade by my friend Dimitris Mangoulidis.
And these are some vintage stitched finds from the open flea market that I couldn't pass.
By the way this is my balcony. I have prepared it for my spring and summer time out and hope I will manage to stitch a bit here.
That's all for this GG. Hope you enjoy all the links! Hugs.

Let the people choose-May-Flowers

Hello everyone!
On the first Saturday of each month I take part in Jo's of Serendipitous Stitching game Let the people choose.
Every month we choose a theme and show items we have stitched on that theme or things we would like to stitch one day.
I usually stitch something for the theme but this time I didn't manage to finish the piece I started.
Still I decided to show it to you.
 I have started April in my Bucilla Flowers of the month bookmarks. In fact I started it last April 2018 and this April I haven't finished it yet. I have to work harder on it otherwise it will be my longest WIP.
Here it is so far.I am making it into a frame and not individual bookmarks.

Of course I have lots of patterns and kits with flowers to stitch but I wonder when I will manage to make them all. Apart from the Permin pattern all the others are gifts. I want to stitch those first.When?
But anyway to compensate you I will show you photos of flowers from my recent trip to Poland.

Now why don't you visit Jo's link up party and see all the other blogs too?
