    Maine Ladybug - Thank you so much for for your considerate and generous gift! I am beyond delighted! I love everything and am so overwhelmed by the thoughtfulness of it all.
    The pot holder is going straight in my kitchen. The mat I'm putting in my living room. The tag is going on my tree.
    I got a Presencia thread set, delicious McKenna Ryan pattern, batik FQs, fabric, yarn, labels and I wonderful needle holder made just for me.

    Anticipation!

    Nice note and her daughter really helped.....picked out a cute purple kitty stocking just for the Sass...catnip included! Got an Oklahoma mug with a little wool jacket to keep my fingers from getting hot, a homemade Christmas tree pincushion filled with pins (darling), hot cocoa mix (homemade, I think), chocolate candy bar from England, Fiskars thread snips (need them)m, chip clip with Rt 66 on it, green flowered fabric and a beautiful pack of fat quarters from her LQS, I think. They are so pretty, metallic with butterflies (and she said Jayla picked them out) That little girl has great taste!
    Thanks so much Jamie. I will try to get your screen name from Terri so I can properly thank you.
    Love it all!

    I think Sassafras sniffed too much catnip. She looks possessed!

    I just opened my package this morning after a message from Scrapquilt. I totally forgot, I have sick kids and lost track of what day it was. She sent me several wonderful books, beautiful charm packs, BEAUTIFUL angel material, multiple templates and patterns, and ALOT of other stuff and even some yummy gummy worms for the kids. I will post pictures later! This was my first SS and I will do it again.

    THANK you Scrapquilt for your thoughfulness!!!!!!

    Jamie, Jayla, and Beau

    Thank-you so much for the gifties from my SS Saraaev (Sara). Love them all. What a neat idea putting a magnet in the wrist cushion would have never thought of that Love the pin cushion attached to a picture frame it gives it a antique look and how did you know my favorite chocolates I absolutely love chocolate covered cherries. Oh my batik fat quarters my fav for sure. Will hang my 2 christmas ornaments on our tree. Oh and the flavored coffee I can never get enough of that. The apple flavor is new to me can't wait to try that out. Will hang my cardinal plaque in my sewing room. You did such a wonderful packing job, love those packages. Thanks again for being the bestest SS. Have a very Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year. Best to you and your family during the Holiday season and all year long.I was unable to be here last night as my 2 sons decided to have a surprise bday supper for my father and told me late Saturday night...really more notice would have been nice as I had to drive 123.5miles to get there not to mention having to drive back last night....But all went well and I came home to a wonderful package to open...

    Sorry ladies....we were in the process of decorating and watching football. With everything going on around here last night I totally forgot to open my gift until around midnight. It was wonderful!!!!! I will take a picture and post here soon. I would like to thank my secret santa JuneBillie for the wonderful box stuffed full of fantastic things!!!!! I love it all!!! And you're a sneaky one too, asking all those questions about my memory tree and all the time you were my SS. Love it when people are sneaky....LOL. My dogs and kitties all send big thank you's too!!! They loved their treats!!!!! DH & DD eyed up the hot cocoa and chocolate bar....until they realized it was dark chocolate.....hehehe. They don't like that kind of chocolate. Told them they don't know what they're missing!!!! Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the wonderful things!!!!! And how did you know I needed a "cozy". That will get a bit of a workout

    Beautiful children, you are blessed.

    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...........
    Don't worry about having to change the rules, Terri....
    It's sad when people don't live up to a commitment, without letting you know....sigh...maybe next year we won't have any "flakes"...

    Alright, finally got the pictures taken. Here's what JuneBillie sent me. Oh, and my DH loved all the ziplock bags. He said that was his gift. He uses them when he's working on old cars to put all the small parts in...who would have thought that JuneBillie would have found the perfect gift for him...LOL. Men!! Anyway, here are some pics:

Size:  1.36 MB Found the perfect place for the "scrap" mat. It's in the middle of my memory tree, on top of the old wooden crate the tree sits on. Looks awesome there, like they were meant to be!!!!

    Terry, in Neb. Thank you soooooo much for the lovely Secret Santa gifts! I was in a state when it arrived and opened it without thinking. My Mom's health was going down and that took all my thoughts. BUT The one thing I needed at that time was HAND LOTION! I was washing my hands a lot and the disposable gloves really tear my hands up and the hand lotion was a God send! My Sister and I got such Joy out of each and everyone of the lovely gifts during a time when we were frightened about loosing our Mother. You had no idea that your package would bring such Joy.......Christmas. A Big Heartfelt THANKS! Melody ( a newbie who is not a flake)

    *ZugZug* - Thanks for all the goodies! Sorry I couldn't get on last night - family/holiday craziness!

    The furbabies love their treats, the fat quarters are beautiful, and the pins and needles will come in handy. I don't know where they all disappear to!

    I shouldn't want for another pincushion, the sewing machine one is adorable! and the shopping tote is great. I can keep it tucked in my purse for my shopping trips!

    The furbaby treats aren't included - the (real) kids took those out to play with the furbabies.

    Thanks again!

    Thank you so much for the very crafty gifts. Whizzy( cat) said "meow, meow" which means thank you ! He said he would wear it on Christmas . You really put a lot of thoughtfulness in your package.

    In the middle of moving and got home too late last night to post . . . but not too late to open my package :-). I got a TON of great stuff! Will post a pic tomorrow (had to go to work early this morning). I know I got enough material to make two lap quilts and maybe even a wife quilt. Seriously thought about playing hooky today and spending the day in the sewing room.

    Thank you so much, Linda.
