The Family Gift Coordinator



I seem to be the go-to-person in my family for gifts which probably is quite obvious considering I have a shop full of things to give.  Today my brother Nick rang me pleading me to help him with a last minute gift which he needed for today.  I was up to my armpits in emails, quotes, fabrics and paperwork but I dropped everything immediately for his arrival.  I whipped out a few things in the shop and then he decided on a beautiful Sally Campbell quilt which I wrapped for him.  Usually it's a much longer and arduous task which requires me to pull the shop entirely to pieces.  If only I had someone in my life who would organise these sorts of things for me like I do for them!  He left grateful for my help.  I couldn't stop thinking that it was like a drive-through gift service!  Let's hope she likes the quilt!!!

Thats cute and i can relate..in my circles of both family and friends, I am the gift queen as they call me..... I think we should both be flattered, it means they like our taste and style enough to trust us and they believe in us. Sounds like a lovely choice you selected....enjoy your day!

Oh what a lucky brother....and I am sure that he can be counted of for his skills to help you out in a pinch.
I love keeping lovely ribbons and paper and recycled bits for wrapping...show us your ribbons and paper!
You are always so inspiring how you just pull things out of hat! (you wear so many hats so beautifully!)

Ah, Sally Campbell's quilts are always a winner, no matter what. They're so... genuine and graphically attractive. Which one did you choose? An expressive one or rather toned-down?
