    Yep...iron and polyester batting fighting...not a great thing. I think I'll bet on the iron winning. What about dampening and then laying on the dryer while the dryer is running drying clothes? Helps mine.

    Maybe...if we time it right there will be milk and cookies for us to partake in while we (whisper whisper whisper) and then when we go to (whisper whisper whisper) we will be wired to (whisper whisper whisper) and hunt through (whisper whisper whisper) while we (whisper whisper whisper)...

    I guess I'm one who didn't give a lot of information. The problem is that I like everything.

    A little bit about me - I have two kids, the oldest just went off to college and the youngest is a sophomore in HS. I live in the middle of North Dakota, two hours away from the nearest "big" town. (Can't really call it a city in ND.)

    I'm into bright fun colors for my projects right now, and just found that I really like paper piecing. On my (someday) shopping list, I have Amy Butler's weekender bag pattern and the 2012 Stitch Gifts magazine. I've seen it advertised, but haven't found it in a shop yet. I could always use more pins and a pin cushion!

    I'm positive I'll love whatever my SS sends me, it's just so much fun to get a special package in the mail.

    Ok cool. This won't be long term storage so hopefully it will be easy enough to get them back out, and it is a cotton batting, though I still probably wouldn't iron it directly. Thanks

    LOL...Beware if Sharon gives you a box with air holes...it is the neighbor's always barking dog.
    Sharon, you can't put that dog into your Secret Santa box...besides...it might eat the chocolate and you know that isn't good for a dog.

    OK I stand corrected (was never good at geography)

    If you're from the MID WEST and live with both a cat and dog, please give more details. I've been searching through posts for 3 days now. "I like everything" doesn't help.

    I popped out at lunch and was able to find a few things for my SS gift. I also found the things I need to make one of the gifts.

    A good start.

    This weekend is a long weekend in Canada, I will be working on the project as well as visiting a couple LQS to find some extras to include in the package.

    A question for those who have participated in the past, do you usually wrap each gift individually in the box? My mil loves to have every little thing wrapped on its own.
    Attending University. I will graduate a year after my son and year before my daughter.

    OK, I started shopping today! I went to Tuesday Morning and found something(s) for the box. If you've never looked there, sometimes there's notions and precut fabrics, and often quilting books in the book section. Often nice cookbooks too. Never know what you'll find! I know most of what else I'm going to put in the box, but hope to find some nice fat quarters during a shop hop in two weeks. My person lives in a lovely part of the country. I've visited her state, but at the other end, never been in her neck of the woods.

    I am another who didn't give out much info for SS swap or in my profile. I live with a wonderful man. I have a full time job plus we are raising our 3-1/2 year old granddaughter, Cienna. I am hoping for her to be a future sewer/quilter. She is always into my things and trying to help. She is my favorite critic! She thinks all that her mammie does is beautiful.

    I am new to quilting. I am currently working on the embroidery work on my crazy quilt which I made from clothing that belonged to my mother, plus clothing from my daughter and granddaughter... memory quilt. This will be the first quilt I have ever made. Am also in process of making my first table runner. I plan to learn to hand quilt when the quilting time gets here.
    I like colors from the entire color spectrum. I like both traditional and contemporary styles of quilts. I have fallen in love with redwork and applique so they are on my "bucket list". Think I am probably like all other quilters when they first start...amazed by all things "quilty".
    I honestly do not have any dislikes. I, too, shop at thrift stores so am not offended by receiving items pre-loved by others.

    I will be pleased with whatever I receive. The idea that a total stranger will put thought and time into creating a package for me is a gift in itself.

    I get stuck in the hospital for 24 hours and took me forever to catch up!! Snickerdoodles work for me in my package!! My favorite cookie to make at the holidays are venetians..
    Word of warning..depending on how long the box with holes is in transit, you may want to open it outside...One snifff will tell you!!
    Of course I stopped to do a little SS shopping on the way home from the hospital!!

    Dreamer--venetians are the 3 layer cookie (pink, green and yellow) with either raspberry of apricot between the layers, covered with a thin layer of chocolate on top..then cut in squares...

    Leota- I was in the hospital..not dreamer!! Unless she was in the "Happy Ward"...
