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!

Sunday Sevens #68

There we go…didn’t it go quickly! Only another 11 months until the festivities begin again 😀 I hope you all had a very merry Christmas and enjoyed it spending with your family and friends.
As this post goes live, Adam and I are actually living it up in Las Vegas celebrating our first wedding anniversary! I’m hoping that all the photographs appear nicely and the rest of the post is in order…if not…tough…I don’t get back home until Tuesday! 🙂

1. We have been well and truly stuffed this week with all the food we’ve eaten!  Isn’t that what the run up to Christmas is about though?!  Here we are at our local bar – can you tell which one of us has had a drink…or 2?

Sewing Santas

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.
