Thank You Stitching Santa!

The office for our apartments closed for Christmas.  Of course, my #stitchingsanta present was delivered on the final day they were open…when I was out and I didn’t get back in time to pick it up before they closed! 😦  I was sad because I knew we were going away the morning after Christmas so I wouldn’t be able to open it until we got back on the 29th!!! Can you guess what I did first when we got back from Vegas??  I OPENED IT OF COURSE!!

Now my stitching santa was lovely Abi over at The Freckled Fashionista!  Abi did sooooo well putting the gifts together and I absolutely LOVE everything! Thank you so much Abi!

I did have a sneaky suspicion that Abi was my santa.  She posted a blog post with some presents wrapped with doggy paper and some English themed fabric.  Well, I have a dog, I lived in England and I now live in the US so I thought that it may be for me and it was!  I was so pleased when I opened the parcel because everything was wrapped up brilliantly – the wrapping paper was gorgeous!

Soft and Scrumptious

A quick post to show the other items that I made a couple of weeks ago for two expected babies.  Hopefully, they will have made their way to England by now!

These are ‘taggies’ or ‘tag toys’ and they are very soft and scrumptious!  I have never sewn with this soft flannel fabric before and it was a little trickier than I originally expected.  A little stretchy and slippy!   I chose owls; 2 different patterns and lots of ribbons.  I think these are nice as a little handmade gift and will certainly keep them in mind for further gifts.  Enjoy 🙂
