Hello! Yes I am still alive!
I’m planning a flurry of posts so hopefully you’ll hear more of what I’ve been up to, but for now, here’s a little peak at what my Stitching Santa recipient is getting…
Some of you have been showing everything in detail, some of you have shown wrapped presents only – hmm, I decided to do a bit of both!
Now, I’m slightly worried that my recipient may feel she’s drawn a short straw as she’s not getting loads of handmade goodies from me. This is mainly because I have been sooo busy sewing every single day and I just haven’t had time to sew anything amazing for anyone besides people who are paying me!! Sorry 😦
But I have made this little coin purse:
Oooh can you see something shiny in there? 😛
And I am including this kilt pin brooch – it is handmade but I bought it! It also comes with a little bag of pot pouri!
Yeah, I covered up the initial charm! It might give the game away slightly otherwise!
And then I’ve taken this abstract photo of the other few things – I don’t want to spoil the surprise completely.
I might be the only one, but I find it quite challenging buying gifts for a sewer, just because I don’t know what she has or hasn’t got gadget-wise etc, it can be hard to choose fabric colours, styles etc… so I thought these sewing-related but not actual sewing goodies might be nice. I hope.
But there is one fat quarter in there… Thanks to Sharon @ Creativity and Family for sending me my competition prize wrapped in fabric – hehe I stole that idea!
The present is wrapped in Christmas paper by the way, so the recipient won’t see this post and immediately know it’s for her when she opens the parcel’s packaging! 😀
Oh and I made the card, too, but I don’t have a photo right now!
Happy Christmas! I hope to post again in a few days but don’t quote me on that!
