Gifted Gorgeousness

 

Hello Stitching Friends,

My first Gifted Gorgeousness post for 2021. This SAL is hosted by Jo at Serendipitous Stitching and involves  showing something stitch related that we have received or have made to be gifted. We can check-in from the 15th until the end of each month. More information clicking here.

I´m joining the group today, with two stitched designs which I have finished this month and hopefully one of them will don the front of a cookery book cover I want to make for my granddaughter.

I stitched this pattern first.  It is called Dame au Gâteau by La Sylphide Toquee ,  It looked a bit pale, so I added some outlining but I think  the design will be too big for the size of the cover I have in mind.

because I want to mix and match the pattern with  an assortment of purple and scarlet fabrics.

I found another little pattern  suitable for a cookery book which I had half completed  some time back and I just finished it off adding  the same pile of little cakes from the first design and the overall size is better , so I will use this embroidery for the book cover.


I have also been knitting a few little jackets for some dolls which a friend of mine makes.  The pattern is one of J. Barrett´s  which I used years ago to make Barbie´s clothes for my granddaughter.              


I haven´t added the buttons as my friend will choose those.

 Sheryl            

  

Thank you for stopping by and looking.

    1. I´ll send the free pattern of `Barbie cardigan and pants´ on to you June, as the link of 2005 via woolworks.org doesn´t work any longer.

  6. Thanks for taking part in GG this month. I like both those designs but the first one has a cake in proportion to her dress LOL. I like the way you added those cakes to the second design too.

  7. Adorable sweaters. I’ve always thought a hand knit sweater was such a wonderful gift, even for a doll. And the cross stitch pieces are so cute. Maybe you can finish the bigger one on an old cookbook for display. Thanks for sharing.

  13. Ahoj,
    výšivky sú nádherné, krásne farby. Aká je to prosím látka, na ktorú si vyšívala???
    Svetre pre bábiky sú rozkošné, roztomilé, krásne...
    Srdečne pozdravujem a prajem peknú nedeľu,
    A.

  16. What a wonderful gift the book will be and with a double reason for her to treasure it. Your beautiful stitching along with your special recipes for her to have. Both of the ladies and their cakes look beautiful.

  17. Those tiny knitted cardigans are adorable. Love too the Dame au Gâteau design. A rather beautiful cover for a cook book which your granddaughter will treasure.

  18. Oh, those Barbie sweaters are just the sweetest, Sheryl! My mother used to make me tiny Barbie clothes on her sewing machine. Back then I never appreciated all the patience and time that went into them (not to mention the love!). Anyway--these are precious!

    Your little cookbook covers are darling--especially love the purple one as I'm longing to stitch something with pretty pastels right now. We got 8 inches of snow yesterday--very cold and wintry, but still beautiful. Hope you are staying warm! Have a wonderful February ♥
