    Thank You for the wonderful Secret Santa!! It was like opening a "Mary Poppin's Style box" It was seemingly never-ending just like her carpet bag. LOL. It was fun playing the guessing game while looking at the pretty candy cane stripped box as it sat on the dining table just waiting for Opening Day. Now for the list......

    The Notions:
    My 1st Eleanor Burn's Pattern - it's the Oriental Fan pattern for tablerunners & quilts, a Dritz 6x9 cutting mat, a small bottle of Aleena's Tacky Glue, a Clover white makrking pen, a Dritz 120" Quilter's Tape Measure, a Singer Angled-edge lint brush, a Dritz seam ripper, a set of 2 Singer machine & hand needle threaders, 2 Dritz Pearlized 30 count straight pins - one shaped like hearts and the other like leaves, a 6 count of John james Tapestry meedles, a 7 ct. of Gutermann Sew-All threads, a LED Poppy Flower flashlight and a fancy pair of Stork scissors with a white & black print on them.

    But wait - theres more!!! LOL. Sorry just couldn't resist.

    The Fabrics:
    Oh my but wonderful assortment of YUMMY scraps in a quart baggie and then some more in larger pieces of strips and squares. Be still my heart!! Then theres are a group of 3 solids of dark red like a cranberry, navy and dark lilac which will just perfect to make a Amish Mini Quilt to go with my set of Amish soft dolls that are from a panel from Lancaster, PA. Next comes a "Grandma's Scrap Bag" that has me almost drooling with it's 5 shades of brown & tans with a wonderful Toile (sp?) print aling with some Civil War prints, a nice medium blender and a great solid tan to bring 'em all together. I even have the perfect mini quilt pattern singing it's siren song in my ear. But still going .. I found this great bundle of FQ's that has 2 co-oridinating leaf prints on both black & creams background with gold on them.

    And to finish up this great box.... Machel sent me this neat homemade card the has a black fabric Amish Buggy stitched on it. It reminds me of the all the Amish buggies from the Lancastor area in PA.

    Thank you again Machel! You did a wonderful job with my box that I hope you had just as much fun picking everthing out as I will playing with everything!! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Y'all!!

    Tricia

    PS My camera is so not working so I will have to figure out how to come with a picture some how to share with everyone.

    Tricia, I had a lot of fun picking out your gifts I just couldn't stop I am happy that you like your little box of goodies. Enjoy. Merry Christmas to you and your family and a Happy New Year
    Quilting is my crack cocaine!

    Sorry guys, but I finished the last bottle. We will have to make another run to the Wine and Spirits Shoppe. You know how it is when you are busy quilting.....you get very parched. Then your hands strart to cramp, and the only thing you can do for that is to exercise them in a different way. So I discovered that picking up a wine glass by the stem and tipping with the wrist helps immensely. Now, if you're not a wino...errrrrr.... wine conniseur, you can achieve the same results with a martini glass or a margarita glass. Just make sure you hold the pinky finger up to exercise it too. Also, you have to switch hands every few tips, so you get equal exercise in each hand.

    I've been looking for the SS thread since Sunday night! I want to thank PatQuilts for the wonderful box of goodies I received. It seemed bottomless! I got a set of dishtowels (which perfectly match my newly painted kitchen), a wonderful selection of fqs, some pretty snowflakes, a great quilting magazine, a lovely snowflake glass (everybody is tired of seeing me with my red one), and all sorts of goodies. Thanks so much for your time and talent in putting together such a great gift! Merry Christmas to all of you!

    Bless your heart! I'm right there with you, though! I fell down the doorsteps and broke my wrist, my ankle and my foot! Can't sew, quilt, paint (cook or clean or vacuum) so I am just sort of sitting here waiting for the elves to appear and do all I need to do! Oh well!!!

    I think we should have a party this summer. I have some nice wine and plenty of room. If we need overflow....there's always Machel's house. But, she doesn't have as much fabric as I do and I have the bigger sewing room.
    What ya say???

    Now for a fun way to do Secret Santa...
    do as I do and start your shopping with sales and coupons now and thru the year.
    have a box sitting there and when it's full you are done.
    now what can be fun about this is that if you wrap each item
    then when your gifted to person opens it
    you will get a double surprise because likely you won't remember what you wrapped.
