I'm VERY disappointed!
Do you have to sign up each year or am I in because I signed up last year?
grannyshep sorry you missed this one but Lori hosts a monthly Secret Pal swap and they usually open about a week before the end of the month for the next month-would you want to look into that one? I'm not sure but I think that one started as a result of this one when members didn't want to wait a whole year for another secret swap.


I'll be looking for some of that delicious sounding wine -looking for the hole now...

In case my SS is wanting to know, I'll answer the remaining questions asked here --

Do you like the Clover binding clips? Have the small (red) ones but could use the bigger (green) ones.
Do you like/use zippers?
Yes; could use poly ones of any size or color.
Do you like Christmas fabrics?
Yes, but have plenty.
Do you have a Keurig brewer?
Yes, and enjoy any kind of coffee except those with chocolate.
If YES do you have a favorite flavor/kind of coffee, tea or hot chocolate?
I like tea in bags but none with mint.

Do you like sewing/quilting notions (in general) such as seam rippers, etc...
Of course.
Do you like/want magazines and/or books (sewing/quilting)?
Sure. I'd especially enjoy back issues (thus used) of Primitive Quilts (just subscribed with the Fall 2015 issue being my first) and Miniature Quilts (now out-of-print). But truly like anything.
Do you like/want/need quilting rulers? (shapes/sizes)
No.

Do you like hand lotion? a special brand/kind?
Could use smaller sizes for my nightstand and car.
Do you like Bath & Body Works products?
Love bubble bath of any kind.

Do you like/use graph paper (for quilt designing)?
No.
Do you like the Clover Yo-Yo makers?
Already have one.
How about the Clover Kanzashi Flower Makers?
No.
Do you like using yo-yo's (already made) in your projects?
No. If I need one, I make it to match the project.

Hope this helps. Truly, I'll enjoy and appreciate anything you send!

Lee, I'm not big on Reds, but have seen this brand and been curious. Can you tell us why you like it so much? Is it sweet?

Their Dark is much better than the red, but it does cost a little more but well worth it.

I'm doing the happy dance, I got my name and it time to stalk!!!! This year should be fun, she lives in a state that is warmer than mine!

Well I am very much into reds, so no help there. The Apothic is a blend. A lot of the time red wine can give me a headache, but this one never seems to. It is a bit sweeter than your average red.

Here are some answers to the questions about things I like or dislike.

Favorite Color : any color that is not Yellow. I really really really hate the color yellow! I cant say it enough. I hate the color yellow. It sometimes actually makes me feel queasy.

Favorite fabric: Lecien flower sugar, merry taupe, Old New 30's, just about any lecien fabris will do.

Quilting style: eclectic

Pets: Sadly no due to allergies

Coffee or Tea: Iced Tea Only and I do have a keurig for making iced tea only

Chocolate: Yes milk chocolate only

Home made or store bought: Both

Favorite Flower: Lisianthus

Favorite Snack: Popcorn ( not microwave) Cashews, almonds and peanuts

I listen to the tv, classical music and American songbook classic music.

Love clover binding clips

No to zippers, No to scissors have an overabundance of both.

Fusible applique only

I guess that's about it for now.
