#StitchingSanta 2016 revealed!

A very Merry Christmas to everyone! Here’s a little post to unveil the gifts from #stitchingsanta this year. This is a secret Santa gift-giving activity organized by Sheila from Sewchet and it was a lot of fun!

I received my exciting parcel fairly early in December, which spurred me into action and I’m glad to say I managed to get my parcel off shortly after.

My parcel was sent by the very thoughtful Moira from The Quilted Snail. At least, I hope that’s right Moira! I only have your email address, so I did a bit of googling and I think this is your blog. If not, let me know. ­čśÇ

Moira had clearly been checking out my blog, as she had me down to a tee with a beautiful grey and metallic length of cotton fabric. You can’t see the gold and silver accents in the picture too well, but they’re really pretty. Funnily enough, I just finished up an Almada robe in a fabric that also has gold accents, so you’re on my wavelength Moira! ­čÖé To complement the fabric was a reel of grey thread (my favourite colour of thread┬áto work with – it’s so useful!). Also in my package were a pair of small scissors and a storage box. Coincidentally, I was just looking at these the other week and didn’t get around to buying any, so this is perfect! Now I have somewhere to store my snaps and hooks effectively. And the best touch were the little “handmade by┬áme”┬álabels. I have been meaning to buy labels for soooo long, so this is great!

Thanks so much for your kind gifts Moira, and thank you so much Sheila for organising this. It was a lot of fun putting together a parcel, but also so nice to receive a gift from someone who enjoys the same hobby as yourself. When my recipient blogs about their parcel I’ll add a little post about those makes, but for now, have a very Happy New Year!
