Toy Society Christmas

Today, along with heaps of other crafty people I joined in the Christmas toy drop for the


This is Eustace and she was quite excited by the whole thing


She didn't even mind getting popped into a plastic bag (I assured her there were small air holes).



She snorted a little when it was obvious that I had forgotten some string to hang her up with,

But I think she was quietly impressed when I found a selvedge strip in my hand bag and saved the day !!!!

  2. I love piggies! Totally my favourite animal and she is just adorable.

    ROFL @ the selvedge/string moment. Why am I not in the least bit surprised that you happened to have some of that "lurking" in your bag?? ;)

  28. My nan use to carry "emergency supplies" in her bag, toilet paper, salt, band-aids, if only she had known of the value of a lurking selvedge.
    Did you leave a not, please enjoy my gorgeous pig, but leave the selvedge for later pick-up

  32. Love this idea (I have visited a few other participants too). How exciting to leave your creations for a stranger to find... and how incredible and lucky they must be to find such treats.
