I've been sewing for my SS today, a few things that I hope she will like and can use. Don't know if she is a longarmer, she hasn't posted anything yet...but I know she sews I do love the longarm, just need to quit piecing quilts and get to quilting them.

Skaduzy, that's my first laugh for the day....

If I go to the hole I'll gain 10 lbs. But what the heck is holiday time. Not much of a chef, but everything sounds so good.

My Sp is getting some of this material, hope you like it
[ATTACH=CONFIG]533139[/ATTACH]
My SP does not post and her list was very very short. So I am using my imagination here. Everything you will be receiving is something that I wouldn't mind getting. There are store bought items, handmade items, items from my stash. I do hope that afterwards you will post pictures. (Do we post pictures of what we get on here?)

Tried to stalk her but as long as she has been on this board she has not made one posting. There is nothing on her profile at all.

I thought of a couple of items last night that I would be happy to receive....sewing machine oil and drop in bobbin washers. Maybe that will help my SS

Wow! My box is almost full already!! One more shopping expedition this weekend and I'm ready to mail at the end of the month!! And a good thing too because I'm leaving town on the 11th to head to Utah to visit my sis.
My SS posted very little, but then came back and posted a bit more, so luckily I had no problem finding goodies to stuff her box with!

And on another note, I'm NOT a longarmer. As a matter of fact, mine are very short.... ha!!!

I'm shocked!
Everyone is behaving....so far....

I do have a bit of information for all of you.

You remember the glitch I had/have, right?
Well,,,,there's still a glitch in there and I cannot find it.
Soo...instead of tearing my hair out and making my eyes go completely crossed where they'll never uncross, I have decided to just roll with the flow.
There's one person, who WILL or WILL NOT receive 2 packages.
It looks like that person has someone sending to them, but then again, it looks like they don't have someone sending to them. See my delimma?
I have checked and double checked and triple checked and cannot find the problem.
Sooo......ONE lucky person MAY be receiving 2 packages! Isn't that a great present?
And yes, the person will be receiving from me! Yep ME! Little 'ol me!!
Remember, I live in Amish Country and there are some really cool things here. And NO! I'm not sending an Amish Quilt.
Who is the lucky person? Well? Not telling and I'm not giving hints either.

I think I'm also going to randomly send out little giftees to people. It will be sent from me, so you will be able to open it right away and won't be confused.
Will put names in a hat and have hubby pick the names.
Could be anything from a fat quarter or a pack of needles or a cute note pad or anything that I have in my box of goodies...who knows? I shop all year for things and when I see something on sale, or something really cool, I buy it.
Sound like a cool idea?
