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 given a name, and send them a gift you think they would like, but in this case it’s also sewing or knitting related, depending 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 cottons 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 animal 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, which 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!
