    I am in chat all day every day cause well.. I have no life.. so I find it funny that you are all going to descend on it and take over for an evening. It's going to be a shocker for a few regulars in there and I shall sit back and giggle. I await the day with glee.. I just have to make one thing for my person and then I'm going to be a pest and individually wrap everything, and probably put a ribbon and a jingle bell on each thing.. tee hee. And then I can ship it out. I'm glad that I'm pretty well on top of it cause mine has a little trek to get to it's new friend.

    Hmm... a PI.. I wonder who that might be..

    Hi all I am one that didn't put much down. It's hard for me to put down what I want as I don't want someone to feel bad if they can't get it. I don't have any of the Tucker rulers. I will get some after Christmas if my man Santa doesn't come through. I really like batiks (who doesn't) the colors blue, green, purple, almost any color. I really don't care for yellow, orange. That said I have been given fabric in these colors and I learned to like them. I don't receive many gifts so any surprise is good for me. When is a good time to mail the packages? I have quite a bit of stuff, some old, some new, some bright, some dull, some hard, some soft. I think I am having more fun filling the box than anything.
    I know that I still haven't been very helpful, but just know that whomever my SS is that I will appreciate what I get. You all are making this so much fun. BrendaK

    Ok I guess I'll take a turn, some people are so bossy!!! LOL Ok I need everything because I'll be spending a month a year in Florida til I retire and can spend 5 months there and I need stuff to be able to leave there. I need rotary cutters, blades, machine needles, 6 x 12 ruler, I love christmas fabric and don't have very much of that. All table runner patterns that are easy, easy purse patterns (I have the bow tux, and the city bag nothing complicated to make tho) scissors, anything with quilting stuff on it (mug, little quilty sayings for the wall) for Florida....omg I'm so easy to buy for, I wish I had my name lolol

    This is so cool, to read all the comments after I've joined the swap. As a lurker by history, I can tell you, making the jump into a somewhat more active role has altered my attitude. I am so enjoying the play and may even eventually be able to join in the banter. I've been collecting goodies for my gal (oops! a hint!) and am almost giddy with excitement. Is there such a thing as overkill? I find myself stacking things from my sewing life that I don't use or have never used, in hopes of giving them a more appreciative life...in addition to the fqs and purchased gifts, of course. To those of you who have done this exchange before, I ask: have you ever felt like you were the recipient of someone else's house-cleaning efforts? Where is the line between treasure and junk? For the record, I've loosely defined it by whether I've been unable to part with something. I welcome feedback to help clear my muddled thinking here.

    I never feel " like I was the recipient of someone else's house-cleaning efforts." I feel that I'm special that they want to share their "loot" with me ... One man's (quilter's) junk is another's treasure

    Your all having too much fun for me not to join in. Maybe I didn't give much info on my sheet but here are a couple of ideas. I only have a 3 room apt.,so nothing too large. Decorate my kitchen with apples in summer and gingerbread in the winter. Love to cook and bake. Love lighthouses,sea shells,fabric of course, quilt patterns,and would like some templates don't have too many. Also collect t-shirts from different states,recently go one from california from a secret pal. Now, for my SS box have it ready to go except or a couple homemade things,working on Halloween and fall right now,then Christmas. Ok,I think I gave enough hints for now.
    Patience comes to him who waits providing he knows what he is waiting for.

    That hat surely belongs to ME. It's my birthday soon and I claim it :P I have plenty of hair to fill it up. That's my problem.. I don't like most hats cause I have so dang much hair most of them don't look right or don't fit. someone make me something that works for meee.... pleeasseee?!?! ok.. *hangs head* I'll behave.

    So.. since I"m new, just started this sewing stuff in May.. I started out by raiding my mom's stash (she's also on here and in this swap but I think she's only posted once or twice on this thread) and most of the other stuff I've acquired have been through these swaps. So I totally appreciate any "house-cleaning" anyone does. I's a poor unemployed college student. I need all the help I can get. I promise to make pretty pretty things. I have references. I will give your goodies a good home.

    So.. since I have very little of anything, I love EVERYTHINNGGGG.. I just love getting boxes. But I didn't wanna be complained about not having given information so I know I gave plenty but serious.. love anything.

    SURE... I have most everything EXCEPT these few things left on my "wish" list
    Lets see, I need 1/2 hexagon papers thingys to do my "Hexagonal Wreath" with English paper piecing technique.... there are over 350 1 inch hexagons (yes, I cut everyone of them out - 30+ years ago) still haven't completed it... didn't know what I was doing... (no smart mouth remarks)
    Next on my list of "I don't haves" is all the fancy odd shape rulers. I have the basic square rulers and 3 x 18 inch ruler... I need the Kaleidoscope and 60 degree triangle rulers...

    WHAT I REALLY REALLY WANT http://www.ebay.com/itm/WOLFF-Profes...10768394860%26
    I've been asking for this for YEARS....I have the Bench Grinder.... What I need is the jigs that attach to the grinder...They are no near as expensive...
