Now those eleven strangers have become eleven great friends. One of those clever clogs decided that we should do a Secret Santa Exchange. This was one of those situations where you just couldn't lose. Not like those office Secret Santa exchanges where inevitably I got the Yardley's Lavender Soap or something equally intent on letting me know that people thought I was much older than I actually was!
This Secret Santa exchange couldn't go wrong - a hand made something or gift of fabric. Yup, just my sort of thing obviously. I happen to know that all twelve have now received their gifts so we are free to show what we received ourselves.
A lovely zippy pouch and two FQs to die for. And
I love the orange and pink fabric used on the pouch. The blue denim one was my clue to who my Secret Santa was. Because Miss January just sent through the fabric for the next bee blocks. She has requested that each block be sashed in exactly the same fabric. So thank you Miss January!
Check out the close ups of the FQs. Two mini madams in this house have their beady eyes on this fabric. I am hiding it. I am willing to share my chocolate (occasionally) but this fabric is mine, all mine!
|I recognise this fabric, but couldn't tell you its name.
I never remember stuff like that!
|This one is apparently called All Rights Reserved.
Right, okay, I don't know what this one is either but I love that little yellow bird in the apple.
A huge thank you to my Secret Santa and I do hope that all the other Brit Bee ladies enjoyed what they received as well.
