    I was able to open my SS parcel along with my Christmas gift, we had an early family
    Christmas today as hubby and I are leaving for Mesa on the 15th.
    My SS was Marne of Ohio. She packed my box just full the most awesome
    items. Marne, I love everything. Thanks so much.

    Hi everybody, Merry early Christmas, or Happy Holidays or Happy Opening Day to everyone.

    My secret santa is Quilty Mom, (Sue) Thank you soooo much. I loved and will use everything. This year, I got to enjoy opening day with my mom. And she could not have been anymore excited then if the box were sent to her. I tried to get her to join in this year with me. But, I will share everything with her.

    We opened the box together. Sue sent 8 generous fat quarters. (6 in my favorite polka dots, 1 coordinating stripe, and a beautiful gold tonal angel fat quarter). She put togeter this cute little gift bag with fabric strips rolled into what looks like tootsie rolls. They are sew durn cute!! 4 of the cutest handmade christmas coasters. (Which will be used with great pleasure.) Momma, loved how they were made. And, a polar fleece stocking filled with an adorable gingerbread ornament and some DMC embroidery thread. (I love to embroider.) And, thats not all, A pack of Carol Doak playing cards. And, an embroidered hand towel and matching toilet paper. Omgoodness, that just tickeled my funny bone. My brother came in and was teasing me, told me he would loan me the money to buy toilet paper, I didn't need to initial mine. LOL, I love it. And last but, not least, an adorable handmade christmas card with a lovely note inside. Thank you so much Sue. (p.s.I'm going to try to upload photos. But, if it doesn't go, I will do it tomorrow when the site is not as busy.) Thank you again Sue for sending me Christmas cheer and laughter along with your box.

    Ooops, I forgot the dark chocolate York peppermint patties. (A personal favorite.) Aack, I can't forget the chocolate. Shame on me. Thank you Sue, for the chocolate. Your a life savor.

    Wow I am caught up. It looks like everyone was very generous this year.

    I posted a photo of my gifts on Facebook and have had several asking how they can participate. Including a 23 year old college student.
    Attending University. I will graduate a year after my son and year before my daughter.

    Tell them they have to be members of the board.
    Next year, I will be changing the rules once again.
    I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to include that you will have to have been an ACTIVE member for at least 6 months. I was giving new people the benefit of the doubt and it seems that I had 8 people "flake" on me and they were ALL new people. I'm not saying that new people will always flake, I've had oldies flake on me too. It's just sad when I have to do this.......sigh...........

    I got sidetracked with people coming by and then feeding them some dinner and finishing the tree. I got my box opened though!! I am so BLESSED. Seriously. I love everything...it is wonderful. I kept pulling out all kinds of wrapped goodies. I'm gonna post the pics, so everyone can see. I can't quite read the name on the card, it looks like 'mosher92' but I can't find a name on the list of that. She is from Maine though!!

    Anyway, here is the wonderful bounty I received and I want to send my Secret Santa tons of virtual hugs!!

    Starbucks Christmas blend, a massive amount of chocolate. lol. Beautiful fabrics, a wrist pin cushion. Two jams, one strawberry and one triple berry. Some coffee candies (which somehow did not make it in the picture. lol the dH got it) The beautiful little snowman, which I put on the tree. And a wonderful candle, plus so much more!!

    I am sooo glad you liked your package. This is my first year doing this and I already can't wait until next year. I had so much fun picking up stuff, last minute because I am the poster child for procrastinator. Have a Merry Christmas everyone.

    My package is yet to be open as I was to tired last night to go out in the car and get it and it is snowing her so I won't go out til later. I didn't get my package until late as I was one of the santaee's that was flaked out on. Thanks to our wonderful host I was not totally forgotten. I will properly than my SS when I go get my package.

I must have been really really good I love them all. How did you know. Thank you Thank you Thank you! I will post a picture in the morning when there is better light. It is a miserable wet evening here in my part of Australia .

    This is what I found in my parcel.

    Beautiful batik fabric (love it)
    4 gorgeous Xmas themed fat quarters with Cardinals (I love cardinals)
    That Purple thang (wahoo wanted one of these for ages)
    6 1/2 "ez quilting ruler (I haven't seen these before I like how the ruler has two colours to see on it)
    Gorgeous red ric rac with gold sparkles (so pretty)
    A beautiful vintage themed address book and two year planner by paper craft
    The coolest pair of xmas socks I have ever seen. Adoreable my daughters trying to talk me into giving them to her!
    A lovely sewing and knitting tote bag pattern
    Rotary cutter blades (I never have enough of these)
    The cutest little key chain with a 2"thimble template
    The prettiest ltittle bag to carry my quilting gear to classes it has vintage bluebirds and birdcages butterflies and roses on it.
    A wrist band with bells on it I'll be wearing that all Xmas day
    A stick of elmers school glue. I had wanted to try this on a quilt after reading a thread here on QB.
    The biggest tube of M&M's I have seen. Yummy there goes the diet
    And last but not least the most amazing recipe book by a family called Family Favourites The Hazel/DevineGenerations it is so cool. It tells you about the family and shares their fav recipes. What a great idea.

    Well, it's just after 9am in Scotland so I'm not long up (recovering from a nasty virus ). Opening time was 1am and I couldn't last - sorry!
    Thought I would read all the other posts to get in the party mood. Wow! the packages are fantastic! I'm off to have another cup of tea - still a bit groggy - and get the camera ready.
    Back soon with pic.
    Lang may yer lum reek. (I'm a knitter - hence - 'Knit-ette'. Confuses a lot of people!)

    I had a great time opening my box from my SS too. I don't know who it is other than Oz and Lily from Nixa, MO 65714.

    She sent me wonderful things and I had the hot chocolate already. She sent a beautiful table runner and an antique purse and antique buttons which I collect, and a candle that smells heavenly, and a really wonderful Christmas tree ornament in a super matching box. So many lovelies, I want to tell her thank you so much you brightened my day! This was my first SS swap and it was delightful and I really want to do it again next year! Can't wait.

    I opened my SS package this morning. I couldn't wait until after work today and I was out all day yesterday. I don't know who my SS pal was, I only know my package came from Parsippany, NJ, but the card wasn't signed with a name or a screen name. So thank you SSpal. I'll catch up with you through Terri.

    I got a cute mug with doggies on it putting a bow on a basset hound, lovely fat quarters in cream and black and cream; Hearts Affira Pattern and Paper Foundation by Delsie Douglas, several sizes of square templates, Circle of Quilters by Jennifer Chiaverini, Granny Nannys Quilting Gadgest 12 paper Impressions - 3 1/2", Fat Quarter Quiltys by M'Liss Rae Hawley, Quiltede Animals - Continuous Line Patterns by Marta Amundson.

    Thank you so much. Here is a picture.Name:  001.JPG

    I opened my box this morning. Thank you so much Melinda(nexxus831). My box was stuffed full of packages. I received beautiful batiks one prettier than the next and gorgeous coordinated fabrics including(if I am correct) lovely florals by Kaffe Fasset. There were pens(how did you know we can never find a pen that works around here)
    and a really cool Frixion pen. There was an adorable jelly jar pin cushion and pins to go with it. I just finished weeding out all my bent pins and tossing them. I also got a jelly roll, a notepad, a book about Washington State and ironically, a copy of Fat Quarter Quilts-the very same book I sent my SS(great minds think alike). I also received an adorable hand made wreath one of those thingies you hang around your neck that holds a tool so it's handy and doesn't get lost. The hounds each received a toy. They are now all in Gracie Allen's crate-she's a toy hog and last but certainly not least I received an adorable basset hound necklace that looks an awful lot like Huggie Bear, my avatar. I hope I haven't missed anything-wait-musn't forget the package of hankies which are going to work with me and my cold this morning and Swiss Miss cocoa. Whew-I think that's it. Thank you so much for making this year's SS exchange so much fun.
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
