    I'm very excited to hear from my partner - I even sent a message to remind her that it's time to open! Here's hoping that I hear from her tomorrow...

    a tad bit overwhelming on BI so just put in a corner.
    will deal in a day or two.
    Please keep in mind those loose lips discuss you also !!!!!

    Many thanks to craftymatt2 (Mary) for a wonderful SS package!!
    DW was looking through 'Learn to Make a Quilt from Start to Finish' and is eager to share it with me. *
    The patterns, thread and fabrics are great and feel nice and warm. The photo frame calendar is a great idea and I love to print pictures! I can use the Harvest note pad. Thank you for _everything_ in the package! I'm off to eat some smarties/peanut butter logs !!!!

    Thanks,
    Buddy aka Mr.JuneBillie (and PROUD of it!) :-)

    * Okay, she said I could tell this. She keeps eyeing my book as if it made it into the wrong SS package! Not quite drooling, mind you... but it *is* a very good book! LOL

    P.S. THANK you for the coffee!! (not pictured because it went straight to the kitchen! yummy!)

    Hi Happy Tails,

    I had a lot of fun shopping for you. My dog Oscar loves his rag quilt. I knew you had two dogs, but I was not sure about their sizes. I hope they are not Collies or St. Bernards, or the quilts will be too small.

    I hope you have a happy Christmas.

    Morning - Looks like everyone did well with their gifts, I know I did. Would love to post pics, but haven't been able to get that to work yet. My partner made me a Christmas tree pillow cover. It is so beautiful. She included some fabrics I have never seen before, which I cannot wait to use in a special project. Also included was a calendar and key chains from her area. Some candy, bath fizz, ornaments. It was such a surprise. This was my first xmas swap and now I have ideas for next year. WHOO HOO!!
    Have a great day. Hugs, Margaret

    Oh my gosh. I totally forgot about opening my gift as I had company this weekend. I want to give a big Thank You to Carole aka Chester the bunny for a wonderful package which she way out did herself. I received many awesome items. And everything was wrapped and whatnot which made it even more exciting. Please look at the attached picture.

    Thanks again Carole. Loved everything.

I am a passionate newbie though, so I am hooked, and ready to learn. I find it all so relaxing, and rewarding. Yes I am a bit sneaky, but when i seen your beautiful tree, I wanted to ask about it so bad, and almost didn't knowing I was your secret santa...lol. Now I am still making ornaments for mine. I hope you and your sweet family have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

    Merry Christmas to Everyone
    Happy New Year




    He takes all my package stuff....bags, boxes, cans, plastic containers. He's my own little recycling bin. He uses everything!!!! I think he was spying the can holder too!! I know that will get a workout when crabs are back in season!!!! I took pictures of my Memory Tree decorated for Christmas. I will have to PM it to you as it won't let me add a picture to this. I love lighting it, and now that I'm off everyday for a while it will be on everyday. I'm going to make felt bird ornaments for it for Winter, since we have birds at all the feeders then.

    The tread is wonderful!!!! It will get used. I usually buy spools that size as I use it here and there in my machine applique. I never use it in the bobbin, usually use white, black or a neutral.
    The trouble with Trouble is.....It usually starts out like fun!!

    Ok, I was so eager and then totally forgot about opening time when I got home from work. I want to thank my SS so much for a wonderful box stuffed full of pressies. Teabag you did a terrific job. The chocolate is great and so is the book on feathers. Maybe during my Christmas vacation I can try some of that. Kitties love their treats also and say meow meow meow! The fabrics are lovely too. I love the one with the sewing machines. I will try to post a picture soon.

    Hi Guys,

    I have tried to post a picture of the lovely fantastic Secret Santa goodies that Nancia has sent me, but the board is having problems taking pictures from my iPad. I only opened my box today as I have been away.

    I will try to post them later.... But I just wanted Nancia to know that I have opened my package and I love everything.

    hugs

    Caroline

    I am not home right now, I am in Ga. and I had a "santa angel" come thru yesterday. My son called to let me know I had a package. Since I will not be back home till Dec 22nd and I just could NOT wait to see my goodies I had him open the box and send me pictures.(hehehehe) All I know is that your name is Deborah and that you live not far from me in Louisiana. I just want to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.......I LOVE LOVE LOVE it all, now all I have to do is get my hands on it all.....My DH is just as excited about the LSU table runner as I am. Can't wait to check out the Quilt Magazines, FQ's in my fav color!!!Scissors, square ruler, pattern.....from what I can make out on the photos son sent. Some kind of goodie that I need my son to take a better pic of if I am lucky enough that he won't eat it.....LMAO...........Anyway whoever you are you truly are an "angel"..................THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!

    Thanks, I would love to see a picture of your memory tree with your decorations. Making those little felt birds sounds nice too. We love watching birds around here. Your husband sounds very resourceful in what he needs for his things. I have learned a bit more of that myself since quilting. It sure does come in handy.

    WOW..thought I was the only one like that!! I didn't hide my SS for that exact reason!! Right now going crazy trying to find the Christmas presents I have bought all year for the 14 grandbabies!~! I figured it was better to be tormented by the SS box than to lose it!! Good luck finding it and know that you are NOT alone!! LOL

    I happen to know who your SS is (a little naughty elf told me) and let me tell you, she is the most absentminded person in the universe. She will laugh when she hears what happened to you, because stuff like that happens to her daily. Her friends say that she would lose her head if it was not firmly attached to her neck...I also know what is in your package...but I am not telling. LOL Good luck looking for your goodies and happy holidays!

    To my secret santa,

    I am so sorry. We were called out of town unexpectedly this weekend, and then I had to come straight back to work tonight. I will be opening my package as soon as I get home in the morning. I know I will love whatever it is, so please dont fret!
