I took part in Krafty Kat’s Sewists Secret Santa this Christmas. I hadn’t mentioned the gift here before, because I felt quite certain who’d bought it. There was a return to sender address on the jiffy bag. Someone based in Bath. Oh, it must be Scruffy Badger! I thought. Until Scruffy Badger told me it wasn’t her.
I’m afraid I can’t be as civilised and grown-up as other participants. I want to know who sent me the fabulous purple print fabric, the tape measure ribbon, the perfect black and white buttons and the ickle ball of wool. I’m not above encouraging others to split on their friends. Do you have a crafting friend who lives in Bath? Recognise this handwriting? Then, tell me who it is!
Or, are you the Secret Santa? Please, come clean! The agony of not knowing is just too much.
So that’s the mystery. Now on to Mrs C, owner of craft shop and teaching space, Made Marion. She’s one of my favourite people in the blogging community, mainly because she is the queen of constructive feedback. Another Sewing Scientist recently hosted a really interesting debate about blog comments and whether or not we’re just too damn nice to each other! What I really, really like about Mrs C is that she manages to be lovely whilst also giving technique advice and encouraging critiques. A fine skill to have!
And now she’s crafting on TV with Choice New Zealand! You can see Youtube clips here, here and here. Go take a look! She wants to drum up as many visits as she can, to encourage sponsorship for more filming. I know that, between us, we can shoot her visitor stats through the roof. Check out her pin cushion ring in the second clip! I need a pin cushion ring in my life…
Secret Santa? Are you listening?
