#StitchingSanta – Revealed

First I must say a big thanks to Shelia who blogs at for organising #StitchingSanta.

Its been a large part my Christmas this year, deciding on the gifts I would send, remembering to post it and then the excitement of receiving and opening my parcel. buttonsewingsantaMy recipient was Pippa who blogs at BeadsandBarnacles and shares her blog with her sister Nikki.  I had not come across Pippa’s blog before, but from stalking her blog posts I discovered she is a sailor of tall ships who loves ballroom dancing and creative crafts.

I struggled a bit with what to make but eventually decided on useful bits and pieces

I made a holder/keeper for a small pair of silver embroidery scissors.PENTAX DIGITAL CAMERAand a matching mouse pin cushion.PENTAX DIGITAL CAMERAA mini quilted Christmas stocking.PENTAX DIGITAL CAMERA
