    Don't back out! Really, I DO accomodate every one, or at least I try.
    Like Sharon and others said, I will have my hands full, but nothing I can't handle.
    Please, join in, don't worry, all will be fine, HONEST!!!

    How will I also have my husband join in too? I am a member on the board. We have the same account. He does want to be in on this. It will be his first one. He sees how much fun I have on here. He does have his own machine too.

    There are 4 fat quarters and then gift/gifts valued at $20. It can be one thing or you can put many things in. People will make up little package like things to include thread, seam rippers, rulers, chalk, whatever quilters use. Buy things on sale and you can actually make things go farther. I buy all year long when I find things on sale.
    I've found nice thread at $1, seam rippers at 10cents, rulers for just a few bucks. Sometimes patterns/books will be marked down at a great price and I'll pick those up.
    Don't forget, you can repurpose things too. Say someone sent you a pattern. You used it a few times, but don't really need it anymore. You can put that in. Those sorts of things, I really put no price on, so that would be considered a "freebie" in my opinion.

    Veteran Members sound so much better for us not so "oldies" that have participated a time or two or three or so in this wonderful swap.


    My newest Grandson, Caleb Austin, was born May 29th. I am now Grandma to 4 precious babies. I am so blessed!!!!

    Well, I can Bah Humbug the family, but I sure won't Bah Humbug you guys! Now that I know what is going on, this will be EVEN more fun this year. I have collected a few things, I think I may repurpose some of my sewing doodads that I have been collecting over the years. I never even got them out last year. No where to put them any more. I don't care for the "Veteran" thing, personally. It makes me sound like I have been through a "sewing war". I may have, but sure don't want to admit it. I don't mind being an "oldie". I EARNED that! I will promise Snickerdoodles to whoever gets my name. And I promise to not make them "crumbs" so as to make them fit in the box.

    Secret Santa will be commencing in just a short time.
    Get your little gadgets out that you've been saving all year for so you can whisk them away to far and near places for the holiday.
    Remember...it's just a small gift (not to exceed $20 and 4 fat quarters.)

    I'll be posting more soon.

    This is just an FYI for you all to get ready.

    Should be a fun time this year. We have alot of new people on the board, along with the "oldies, but goodies" who are just itching to join in the fun.

    Stay tuned!

    Terri
    I want to participate! I will hit my favorite quilting shop the next time I am at the lake in Eufaula, Oklahoma. She has great stuff! Check her out at www.longtownquiltshoppe.com

    Oh, you new guys just HAVE to join in the fun. You won't believe what goes on before, with the people asking for hints, then the hiding of the packages by hubbies so they are NOT opened up early. And then the REVEAL day is just a hoot. Remember, we are in all different time zones, so we will be getting Geography lessons along the line too! Then there are those that get themselves so busy on Reveal day that they forget all about it. Can you imagine that???? And if you have pets, they get to join in on the fun. They love sniffing of the package when it comes in. My 2 dogs smelled Tinkerbelle (aka Tinks Mom) on the package and I had to keep moving the box so they couldn't get to it. Little did I know there was a treat hidden inside for them. So brace yourselves for a fun and cheery ride.

    I would like to join as well, but there is smoking in my house. Yes, I agree that the smoke can cause things to smell, but I also know that there are ways to keep things from having a smokey smell. That being said, I would like to join in.
    I don't mind receiving a package from a smoker. Actually, I would prefer to receive mine from one. Good old tobacco helped feed me as a child and build this great state I live in.
    This was NOT meant to offend any one, please don't take it that way. Remember, this about Christmas and we would be naughty if this turned into a debate!
    Count me in!
    How do I correctly go about joining in?
    Thank you and God Bless,

    Stay tuned!
    I'm hoping next week to have all the rules tweaked and everything done that needs to be done for people to sign up.

    As to the smoking issue....I will handle that. I don't think we need to beat this into the ground. I understand that there are people who smoke and those that don't. There are people that don't mind smoke and those that do. It also goes along with those that can't have peanuts/chocolate, etc, etc.
    Those sorts of things will be handled once I get the "form" out so everyone can put their concerns down on that.

    So, can we drop the smoking issue for now and have a bit of fun?

    OK, WHO'S GOT THE COOKIES? I'M ACTUALLY WANTING BROWNIES?
    REMEMBER, I CAN BE BRIBED!!!!

    I cannot wait to try this. It will be my first swap ever. I can send to Canada, it is slow but not expensive. I do it all the time. I can be matched with smokers, dog owners, cat owners...anything goes! So exciting!

    I can do brownies too. I also make those peanut blossoms with the kiss in the center of a peanut butter cookie. I also make coconut macaroons. I also make those pecan butter cookies, forget what they are called, but they are great. Place your orders ladies, and I will try to accomodate.

    I can see I will have to cut back on my charity quilting, so I can bake.

    Oh I think this will be fun.

    I will have to think of a cookie that will travel and keep well.

    But I am more inclined to make English Toffee (like Almond Rocha). The only reason it does not keep in my house is that it gets eaten up all too fast. I will have to be matched to someone who likes chocolate, almonds and buttery goodness.
