Stitching Secret Santa-to

My Parcel went to Kim who blogs as The Material Lady, and if you don’t know her , she is an amazing and very talented lady. She sews divinely and knits socks and all manner of wonderful garments. So what on earth to make for her as she had been a very good girl this year.

Reading her blog I discovered she feels the cold , and last year had been thrilled to receive a shawl. So I made a pair of gloves and a matching hat.

Next it was time to fill the stocking I made for some smaller gifts

A crochet pot, a lavender filled owl  and lemon pin cushion from leftover yarn

A Santa sack for

some useful accessories and finally my whole £10 budget went on

West Yorkshire Spinners yarn and a pattern. In went a card , and as Kim also blogs as The Old Bat at the Back, as she runs as well you know, on the back of the envelope went a hand-made

Once again thanks go to Sewchet for her inspiration in thinking this up and her remarkable organisational skills so we all have wonderful squishy Christmas presents. And there is to be another one in 2018 Sewchet wrote yesterday. What a way to start 2018.
