    A quick thank you to all here who have welcomed me to Secret Santa.

    I have not been sewing for almost 3 years due to a number of stressful events. I would still fondle fabric and buy a very few pieces, but my mojo was gone.

    Since joining SS I have made my giftee 3 items in the last week, as well last night after work I made a rag baby blanket out of stash. It is running through the wash cycle for a second time right now. I am going to a baby shower after work today and decided not to go in on the group gift certificate yesterday afternoon.

    There are snippets of fabric and bits of thread all over my house. Yeah! My sewing mojo is back.

    Thank you ladies.

    Hi Secret Giftee, I have been out for the first time today. A shopping trip to JoAnns. Oh my, what a sale they were having. I only had 2 things that weren't on sale. And, and, I had 2 coupons I could use. Yeah me. I saved lots and bought lots of goodies for my secret giftee and some things for me. I can't believe they had it ALL on sale at the same time. That like never happens. I bought ______s, and special ______s to make a special suprise for you. And, I am also ___tt___ a few somethings as well. (A special request made by my secret giftee.)Oh, busy, busy, busy. And tomorrow, I am making another trip to a certain quilt shop or 2 looking for another special something as well. Oh yeah, this is fun. And, did I mention, she has a furr baby.(I'm not telling, not giving away the suprise.) Oh man, I am the worst on keeping a secret. Groan!! I love to give gifts!!

    Winnona, Congrats on your Baby news. Prayers for a healthy baby go out to you!!!

    Tothill, Welcome back. I'm glad you found your mojo again!!

    Hmm, I will see you all tomorrow. Have a good night.

    i've had all of those furbabies and no-furbees, plus a couple of boas and tarantulas, and newts, salamanders, need i go on? for the record, i have 2 cats and 2 dogs. house limit! so please don't send me a mustang from the wild, preferrably a paint with a blaze and under 15 hands--my yard isn't that big, because dh won't let me get any more pets. i have designed something fun, i hope, for my santaee. she may have one but it won't be like this one. then i have a couple more things to get together and everything will get wrapped and professionally packed. i don't want any fq's to break.HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
    since this thread is short on eye candy, i thought i would include a pic of monkey (black dog quilt inspector) and tiger (red cat quilt watcher) and the quilt i designed, made, quilted start to finish for my son's move to london. enjoy! oh, did i mention i like dogs, cats, and bright colors?

    I was thinking of sending some of my homemade plum jelly and salsa. Unfortunately, it looks like my college son and nephews have swiped most of the salsa. But I do have the plum jelly to send. I just about have her box full. Just a few more little things to pick up and hopefully will do that this weekend.
