As I have done for the past two years, I joined in with Sheila of Sewchet’s Stitching Santa – both the sewing one and the knitting one – you can’t have too much of a good thing.
This cute enamel pin is the thing I spent most of my budget on.
This knitted neck warmer I made while over in the U.K. recently looking after Mum.
I made this little drawstring bag to keep knitting bits and pieces in
such as these wooden stitch markers…….
…….some cute wooden sheep buttons and a couple of other bits I forgot to photograph
Oh, there they are in the next photo of the skeins of slubby linen wool in a fetching shade of lilac.
……and a couple of crocheted coasters which I didn’t make myself so can’t take the credit for those delicate rounds.
Once again I had fun putting my packages together and hope my swap partner will be happy with what I chose.
Thanks to Sheila for organising us all once again.
Hopefully, my parcel for my sewing partner in Sheila at Sewchet’s Stitching Santa will be arriving any day – I hope she isn’t tempted to peek before the big day.
This enamel pin is what I bought with my budget.
This little drawstring bag with I made with some cute Mabel Lucie Atwell fabric contains some little gifts.
Like these buttons….
…..and this sew on purse clasp…..
and a few little charms …..
The pinchushion whale made her way in there but I did take the pins out in case of postal difficulties.
A handmade needle case made with lovely Liberty, some 10 inch squares of their tana lawn cut from my stash and a fat quarter(ish) of the blue and red one all in a luscious Liberty bag.
I hope she enjoys her Christmas surprise.
Yesterday, Sheila announced the results of the draw to see who would be partnered with who for the Stitching Santa she is organising again this year.
Amazingly, I’m a bit ahead of the game for a change and, not so amazingly, I have decided to participate in the Stitching and the Knitting Santas again this year because I do both but, more to the point, I like getting gifts under the tree especially if they are crafty ones.
So, I’ve made a start with these gorgeous enamel pins from Jodie over at ricracsews
This one will be for my knitting partner (obviously)
and this one will be for my stitching partner.
Colours may vary as I haven’t decided which one I’m keeping yet (I have two of each in different colours 😉 and I’ll be wearing mine at the craft fair I’m involved with at the end of the month
These are the ‘purchased’ part of my gifts, now to decide what else to put in.
Are you participating this year (and if not, why not) and, if so, have you made a start or haven’t you given it a thought yet?
