I got my name yippee.

She lives South of me.

She has pets too.

I do not know if she likes home baking. But if I was going to send some I would send closer to the opening date. I love to make candy at Christmas. But I also make wicked Butter Tarts. OMG~~~my favorite !!! I grew up on these in BC...White Rock. I have never tried to ship butter tarts before.

Now to stalk her to get some more ideas.

I have been shopping since the Spring for this. It is great to find super bargains and put them aside. I just need to round out the box and get something for her critters. Last year I made dog quilts for my recipient.

I've got a leash on my fingers but have no intention of quieting them, completely. I'm trying to be good but that only goes so far. C'mon! Join me, in the hard, rock bottom of the hole!

I hope it wasn't me that offended you - that was not my intention Sometimes the written word comes out not the way it was intended

Oh Boy, I made it from page 50 -65 this morning.

I went back and looked at the information I sent in and just realized there was not much to go by.

I have a sewing fabric stash, but not much quilting fabric.

I love precuts. I know some do not, but I really love them and have used them for a few projects.

Jenny Doan is my quilting Goddess. I have one of her magazines (first issue) and another would be lovely. Gently used is fine by me.

I love finding vintage (or just plain old) sewing notions and supplies at Thrift Shops.

I love colour. I tend to gravitate to bright and bold colours. My toaster is bright red. I wore a bright orange top to work Friday. But soft colours have their place too.

I am a mother of teens, I have been married to the same fellow for 21 years. I work 6 days a week, so My Time is limited. Maybe that is why I love precuts and Jenny Doan.

I would love to get some time off and join the naughty girls in the hole. I don't have a tiara, but have some glow sticks.

Dark Chocolate not milk or white.
Tea, not coffee (dh loves his coffee)

We have one small (20 pound) funny looking dog named Oscar and two cats Sophia and Charlie.

I really enjoyed Secret Santa last year. My mil could not understand why I would send a gift to a stranger, but she was here on reveal night and just loved to see what I received.

I love to bake so am always well-stocked at Christmas. I have so many "must haves" at Christmas that I'm usually still munching on them through January (having frozen the excess from December). So obviously, I'd rather my SS round out my package with something else.

Ordinarily, I'm not a 'clean freak' but baking is a totally different story. . . and if I'm at all sick, I do NOT bake. Period.
I swear, Nessie, we could be long-lost sisters!

What did you do? I always miss the good stuff! Tell you what, I'll come sit beside you in the hole and you can tell me all about it.

Both of you, come sit by me! I've brought nice, comfy floor pillows, for those of us with runaway typing fingers. Look for the trying-to-appear-contrite woman (that'll be me), sitting beneath the sign that reads, "I'm just a soul, whose intentions are good. Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood!"
