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!

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.
