What could be better than a sewing themed secret santa?… I hear you…nothing!!
When I read that my friend, Camilla, had signed up for the #sewingsanta over on Lisa’s blog, I was gutted that I couldn’t participate because I was in the USA. 🙁 I even had a little strop! However, Camilla then told me that she had Jessie comment on her blog saying that she couldn’t get involved either as she lived in Singapore. Well, a couple of emails later, I had arranged with Jessie that we should do our own international swap between us two! 😀
I have already seen that Jessie has received the package I sent and loved it! Read about it here.
Her parcel arrived a few days before Christmas. I was patient and I put it under our tree. When Christmas morning came, it was one of the first presents I opened…with excitement of course!
Jessie included a little note to explain each item.
2. This purple and green paisley is from a little store in Chinatown and is 100% cotton from Japan. I’m sure that I haven’t declared my love for paisley on the blog but… I love paisley so this was a perfect choice!
Jessie picked perfectly for me as I loved everything sent! I’m not sure exactly what I will be making but the items have gone into my stash. Hopefully they will be used for garments soon. 🙂
Onto the next one… Camilla and I arranged our own #sewingsanta too! We had a slightly higher budget, and included a personal couple of gifts to each other too. Again, this one was another present that I was so eager to open Christmas morning! We decided to theme ours with birds or dogs…but I did stray off theme with many of the items I put in Camilla’s parcel :-/
Camilla sent me a few more bits too that weren’t sewing related but will feature in other blog posts soon! Again, I loved everything and I will now be hoping that I can get involved in a #sewingsanta every year. These presents made Christmas morning even more exciting for me!
