**Lola the Owl PDF pattern giveaway still open over here**
Emily had organised us into holding a Secret Santa swap, it was so secret we didn’t know who we were making/buying for, I pulled Jo’s name out of the hat and therefore received a gift from Jo:
We had agreed on a FQ’s worth of scraps, a handmade gift and a bought gift for £5 or less. The contents of my gift were delicious. The scraps are gorgeous replicating Jo’s great taste in fabric, the handbalm and soaps smell wonderful (and are made by the wonderful Soapdaze). Approximately a year ago Jo came round and I gave her a lesson in making zip pouches (possibly in exchange for a bottle of wine) and so I was chuffed to bits to see that she learnt something from me, made more pouches AND I get to keep one.
Someone also knew that I had a birthday coming up so it was funny that after commenting the night before on Emily’s IG picture of a coaster/mug rug that she should bring it along for Show and Tell that I received it as part of a lovely birthday gift:
Emily had also been sneaking around my blog and had a photo of a quilt I made put on a mug, it is pretty special.
There was also some delicious macaroons and fine biscuits included which may or may not already have been consumed.
Believe it or not we did actually do some sewing too; paper piecing Christmas blocks which I won’t show you again until I’ve done something with them!
Thanks to Susy for hosting and to all of the lovely ladies for a very therapeutic day. XXX
