#sewingsanta Reveal!

10 Comments

Wow, what a Christmas and New Year – this is the first time I’ve turned my computer on since before Christmas! Although I have been keeping up with Blogland on my mobile and realize that I am probably the last one to show off the gifts from my #sewingsanta.

Shame on me:(

Lisa from Stitched Up From The Start organized a Secret Santa involving the swap of sewing gifts and Jodie from Jodie’s Adventures In Sewingland was given the task of trying to find me a suitable sewing related surprise, which must have been quite difficult as;

a) we are new to each other

b) my creative passions are varied and not restricted to just sewing.

Well, Jodie obviously took the time to look through my blog and, very thoughtfully, included some goodies that indulged my other crafting obsessions.

Here’s what I was lucky enough to receive!

P1040253

A stunning fat quarter of bright red, white and blue cherry fabric with a small scale pattern – perfect for the little projects that I love creating so much;

P1040258

Some beautiful gingham ribbon with a delicate crochet edge;

P1040255

Some real vintage buttons – this girl must have read about all those buttons I couldn’t resist buying at Yarndale!

P1040254

My first foray into needle felting was a little Robin Brooch that I made for Beth at After Dark Sewing. Jodie only went and bought me some fabulous fulling to continue experimenting with!

P1040256

The wool from some Devon Alpacas was an inspired choice – thank you Jodie!

P1040257

Also included was what I initially thought was another fat quarter, this time in a vintage-style ‘Roses’ print, wrapped in a white satin ribbon;

P1040259

On closer inspection it turned out to be a beautifully made sandwich wrap, lined with wipe clean oilcloth in vibrant red and white polka dots!

P1040261

This is the Christmas card that Jodie sent;

P1040262

Many thanks again Jodie – I really am soooo pleased with my gifts and cannot wait to come up with some designs that will do them justice and I will, of course, show them on my blog when I do.

Happy New Year!
