Stitching Secret Santa, I must have been a very,very good girl.

Thank you Sewchet for once again organising our wonderful Stitching Santa. We have been away in London over Christmas  and as I wanted to give the parcel I received my full concentration I waited to this afternoon to open my gift.  Carefully I took off the brown tape and the labels because I loved the box all by itself.

Inside was a wonderful array of gifts.

I really, really should have guessed who my Santa was from the box alone.

But this lovely bag told me that Sewchet herself was my Santa. The bag is lined and very roomy, and is a perfect project bag.

And beneath that package lay all these gifts and yes chocolate money. There was one in the crochet bag too which I have just eaten. So now I knew who Santa was I opened the card.

A hand-made card, just lovely. Cross stitch cards and Handy Snips and look at the yarn from a Zwartbies Sheep.

A hand -made crochet Christmas bauble in its own little box, how cute is this?

Well this cute? Sorry a bit out of focus.

Then came the case made from the upcycled cross stitch picture, which is even prettier in real life and a real inspiration to me to rescue cross stitch items from charity shops. It is lovely.

Then came a crochet pincushion and another hank of yarn. This is Aran weight from a British Blue Faced Leicester Sheep. So soft and squishy.

Then a crochet book full of super designs and

a magazine with some fabulous patterns which I know Little Miss F and I are going to love.

So that is why I think I have been a very, very good girl this year. Tomorrow I will share what I sent to me Secret Santa recipient.

Thank you Sheila for creating and organising this wonderful Stitching Secret Santa  and also for my truly amazing gifts. I am somewhat overcome, so I think a nice magazine and a chocolate coin is in order.
