Stitching Santa – part 1

Now that Christmas is almost over (bah humbug!) I wanted to share the goodies I received from my Stitching Santa this year!

Sheila from Sewchet hosted Stitching Santa for a second year, and I’m hoping she does again next year too as its such a lovely concept.The idea is the same as a normal Secret Santa – you get giimageven a name, and send them a gift you think they would like, but in this case it’s also sewing or knitting related, depimageending on which option you select.

My parcel turned up several weeks ago so was sat in my living room long before we put our little tree up! I also knew who mine was from based on the senders details (many thanks to Lynn who blogs over at Tialys for my gifts 😀 x) and I just wanted to share what she sent me. I will do another post when I know my recipient has opened their parcel – I know they’ve got it (thanks Royal Mail) but I don’t want to ruin any surprises!

First up, Lynn made an infinity scarf put of some beautiful green cottimageons prints. It’s quite hard to photograph but it’s lovely – I don’t wear a lot of green so this was a good gift!

She also made a little drawstring bag with a really cute animimageal print and a lavender bag which smells so gorgeous! It’s already tucked up in my pillowcase and I’ve had the best nights sleep in ages!

She also sent me a dress pattern from Serindipity Studio, whichimage has interesting details on the bodice as well as some fun transfers and the prettiest buttons! Also in the parcel was the pincushion at the top of the post – so cute!

Once I know my recipient has their parcel I’ll share what I sent them – hope they like theirs as much as I liked mine!

  1. I could have foxed you by not putting my return address label on the package because I actually got my husband to post it as he goes over to the U.K. every Monday. However, I had a dreadful experience with a patchwork block swap recently where the wrong postcode was given out and the only reason they finally found their way to me was because the senders had put their return addresses on the packages and so got them returned so they could re-send them to the correct address. Nightmare.

  2. Hello Jenny. I just wanted to thank you so much for my #stitchingsanta gifts. It was a real treat to open on Christmas day. I must apologize for not getting back to you sooner. You’ve got me to a ‘T’ with all you collected together for me and went to such a lot of trouble with that beautiful embroidered hoop. I’ve written a post about my gifted and received #stitchingsanta here. https://lovelucie1.wordpress.com/2016/01/05/stitchingsanta/#more-5795

    • You’re so welcome! I’m very glad to read that it was all so well received – I’m such a nervous gift-giver so I’m quite relieved 😀 Looking forward to seeing what you make with the floral print, and thank you for writing such lovely things! x
