My Secret Sister package arrived from Celine. OMG as the young people say. It's just amazing.......She has a really good blog with lots of ideas and inspiration here which I can highly recommend.
This is what I found this afternoon, when I got home:
And, inside (sorry for the bad quality of the photo):
|Look at the beautiful label!|
A great modern quilt (and I just joined the London Modern Quilt group), a mug, a Yankee candle (I just love those), ahhhh Paris stickers, super-smooth lip butter, a sewing case and pincushion (ooohh hexies!), stitch ripper and ribbons including two really snazzy French ribbons, a notebook and 3 pretty pens and 2 bars of Green and Blacks chocolate - no, I don't know where the other bar went? Finally, and best of all, good quality thin applique pins (I've been searching for fine applique pins for ages and these are just perfect to continue with my Green Tea workshop with Jen Kingwell at the Fat Quarterly Retreat a little while ago). I just love the quilt and have put it on my sewing wall to remind me how important friends, especially quilty ones, are.
|Outside - I should have left it tied up with the bow so you could see that properly|
|Inside - you can't quite see it but there are pockets on the right and a place for the pin cushion on the left|
I hope my Secret Sister won't be disappointed with her small swap package. I sent a notebook in a golfing cover
And a cat that I adapted from my Body Farm Bears pattern. I made the legs slightly longer and it actually stands up on it's own by
