    We are not having a chat to open the Valentines, you can open them when you get them. :)

    Hope everyone enjoys the exchange. :)

    This is so exciting! It will be mailed out by the 20th however
    I wasn't aware that we were supposed to contact the other person to see what they wanted...
    It appears I have done mine wrong so I will apologize now...

    It could be that who they got has posted some things in other threads that they like. Not meaning to say what they would like to get in this swap, but a comment like 'I work more with pinks then reds'.

    I am seriously confused that I have done this wrong..
    My intentions weren't to hurt anyone.

    Dreamer, don't worry about contacting your person...I'm sure your Secret Valentine didn't mind being asked what she/he might like for Val.Day. No big deal....remember, on this board the rule is "WE HAVE NO RULES." Happy V-Day to everyone.

    Dreamer you didn't do anything wrong. It's the fun in doing it that counts, there are no rights or wrongs from this kind of exchange. :)

    I didn't contact mine either. I'm glad mine didn't contact me. I don't like telling someone what I want. I feel that a gift is a gift. I love the surprise. And it's up to me to be creative with whatever I receive. I can't wait for my surprise !!

    Sent mine out today. I love surprises so I can't wait to get mine. I am the easiest person to give a present to because I love getting surprises. Hope mine feels the same way. This is sooooo much fun!!!!!!!

    Oh my, sorry for any confusion. Just to clear this up, I did not contact my Secret Valentine at all. I simply did some research on her posts to give me some idea of what she might like in the way of fabrics. That is all.

    To avoid further confusion, that was not a rule of the exchange, it was just something I wanted to do.

    Sorry Shadow, for the confusion.

    Mine in getting into the mail about right this minute, DH left for the post office with it and a package for DD in Iraq. I guess I am boring, I didn't do anything "special" either. This is fun anyway, can't wait to see what I get!!!

    OOOOOOH !!! I received my Valentine surprise this afternoon!! Thank you soooooooo much, Dreamer. You must know me like a book. I especially like the stripe and the geometric ones. I love paisley and the hearts look like paisley prints. They're all great ! The colors are perfect. I may not sleep tonight, just wondering how I can use them.

    I just went back today to read the thread because it had bothered me that Dreamer felt so bad thinking that she had done something wrong. Isnt' it hilarious that without even knowing it (that she was my secret Valentine -- or is it that I was her secret Valentine :?: ) I was trying to console her and let her know that I had done the same thing. Things all worked out well. And I repeat, I am soooo pleased with her gift. I really appreciate the beautiful FQs. Can't wait to have time to do something with them. It will have to be something very special. I'll probably name the piece "Dreamer." :lol:

    This is so cool! I never get surprises, as my dh has me pick all my presents and he writes the check. (At least, I usually get what I want!)

    It's in a pretty red wrapper....and a froggy gift bag, how cute! and beautiful fabrics, all so loving, THIS IS WONDERFUL! And chocolates and a valentine...
    Thank you, thank you!



    my valentine loot, so fantastic! thank you
