Odds and Ends

#stitching santa



I do love a project, and I am excited about this one!

Sheila, at Sewchet, is organising #stitchingsanta and it sounds like so much fun. As she says

Can you imagine unwrapping a gorgeous skein of wool, a perfect metre of fabric, some vintage buttons or some embroidery silks? Perhaps a little handmade gift has been popped in the parcel too? All lovingly thought out with your interests in mind and guaranteed to be under your tree on Christmas morning. What a treat!

Sheila is going to give me another blogger. My happy task is to find out all I can about her a secretly as possible, so I will know what treasures to send to her to be opened on Christmas Day. I wonder what I will be sending? And I am sure there will be a little handmade gift in there too.

Would you like to be involved too? Jump over to Sheila’s blog by the end of the month and let her know that you would like to play. There are two different categories Sewing and Knitting and crocheting to choose from, or be involved in both, like I am. These are her steps

  1. You can enter from anywhere in the world but I will try to match countries in order to keep postage costs down.

  2. State which swap(s) you would like to enter and send your email addressblog siteand postal address to me at by midnight on 31st October 2016.

  3. I’ll email you the details of your recipient by 7th November.

  4. Spend a maximum of £10 (€13, $15US, $20AUS) excluding postage.

  5. Blog about your #stitchingsanta (linking back to this post) and share using the hash tag on social media.

  6. Post your parcel in time for Christmas – check last posting dates well in advance!! International dates are much earlier in December

Dare I say “Start one up”?!
But there’s probably something out there in Bloggy World. The advantage we crafters have is that we love all kinds of material things (excuse the pun!) and that makes gift giving easy. What Secret Santa gift would you give a writer who uses a computer?


lol – that’s exactly my problem – I can’t think of anything for writers. A pen? Who writes in longhand any more? Paper? Same problem. -sigh- I think I”ll just have to enjoy your gift-ideas vicariously. 🙂


Yes, a part of me is saying “Not such a good idea as there is already a lot in your life at the moment”. However, as usual, that thought has come after I have jumped in! Definitely bear it in mind for next year, Kerry.


Nothing like a good natter, so let's have a chat!
