And if you're my Secret Santa, a wool pincushion would be wonderful for me. But I love all handmade items. Including UFO projects that you want to pass on. :-)[/QUOTE]

Love looking at them, especially the really colorful ones; but DON'T DARE TOUCH THEM as I am very allergic to wool! I made the mistake of picking one up at my LQS 'cuz it was so pretty (didn't know it was wool), and within a couple minutes I had hives all over my hand & arm. The girls now warn me anytime something wool is around!

I like the idea of helping struggling working women get out of poverty. Good idea, or bad idea? Would you guys like something like this if you were the recipient?
the tote came in! I hope the recipient likes it.

There it is. I hope she likes it. It has a tag with the name of the woman in India who made it. I like the idea of helping these women out of poverty.

Hello, everyone. I don't post often. But am hoping to change that not that I am retired. Just wanted to let everyone know I mailed my Secret Santa package today. Delivery is to be on Monday or Tuesday next week. Had to mail early as we are taking a holiday before the holidays and will not have time to put my package together before the deadline.
I have enjoyed reading all your posts and just loved the suggestions, they really helped me with putting my package together. This is only my second time participating in the Secret Santa, last time was way too long ago. I feel like a little child waiting for Santa to come on Christmas Eve. My thanks to everyone for that feeling.

That tote bag is very pretty. My son and daughter in law buy things that some of the women in India have made. They are very nice.
