    I hadn't noticed that, but I sure liked the label when I saw it. I had to laugh when your package came in the mail, because my mailman (lady) brought it right to the door and rang the bell. She said "You have a package from Santa, I want a package from Santa." So I had to tell her the story of the Secret Santa. Then when I saw the return address I had to laugh again, because I am from Michigan and applied for a job in Battle Creek after I graduated from high school. And of course every year the school trip was to the cereal factory. I hope your son is okay. And thanks again, quiltymom. I love the patterns, BTW.

    Terri, I just want you to know what fun I had with this. I had never done this before, and I sure will do it again, and be better prepared, giftwise. I had a nice response from my SS PM. How did you decide who to pair up? My SS and I are both from Michigan, and both are Sue's. Haven't heard from the one I sent to, but am sure she had something else going on.

    A "GREAT BIG THANK YOU" goes out to Cheri_J for the wonderful Secret Santa package, that she prepared & sent to me. I feel so blessed & spoiled at the same time, but I am loving it!! Cheri you couldn't have picked out anything else nicer than what you sent & I can use every single item. This has been such a fun swap & I am so gald that I joined in again this year. Now we will have to wait another whole year before we can do it again!! Terri, thank you over & over for taking charge of this big project & I am so glad you liked all of the coal that you received. I wish everyone a Blessed Holiday.
    Sew Happy,
    Cheryl

    Thanks grann....I really have no "rule" as to how I put the names together. I just put them in Microsoft Excel, then click on SORT. It all depends on how I want to sort it. This year, I sorted it by first names.
    Don't know how I'll do it next year. ya'll will just have to join and see!!!

    I'm glad everyone is having/had a great time with this. This is a lot of fun and it's the ONLY swap I do. It's alot of fun for me because I get to tease all of you with you is sending to you. hehe
    BUT...ya'll get to tease me by sending me coal! lmao

    I do appreciate the package, the bag is gorgeous, Leota did a great job on it and the fabric,,,O M G ! ! B E A U T I F U L ! !
    Ya'll outdid yourselves!

    now, start shopping for next year. Last year I had, I think 245 people, this year was 202. Lets see if we can hit 300 for next year! (I must be insane suggesting this)
    If ya'll start shopping now, you can get some good sales, then start your SS package(s) and then all you will have to do is include the fat quarters.
    Everyone can use pins & needles, notions, patterns and the like. Maybe you'll find a cute ornament on sale and can get that and tuck it away for safe keeping.

    Big thankyou to sewhappy57 for her generous parcel. I will try and post a picture (never tried before) later. Here's what I had - a beanie cat, 2 christmas tree ornaments, toffee crunch chocolates, Bali Pops batik strips - gorgeous greens and purples and a book "Layer cake, jelly roll and charm Quilts" by Pam Linott. How blessed am I?
    And a thankyou to tirnhi too for hosting the swap.
    There is nothing you can do to make God love you more and nothing you can do to make Him love you less.

    LMAO!!! Hubs and I went to a party about 6 months ago. Some guy told hubs that he needed to "keep me in line". Hubs looked at him and said "when you figure out HOW I can do that, let me know, I've been trying for over 20 years but no luck". lmao

    Darlene (DHaren7), thank you for your wonderful present. You are soooo generous and I absolutely love everything you sent. My Secret Santa package contained Avon foot scrub, lotion and moisturizer and a scrubby, a tin of cookies, a little bag with some sweet treats. a Christmas potholder and mitt, a potato bag, some Christmas socks, a magnetic wrist band, a seam ripper (I can really make good use of that), a 2 inch mini suction and some beautiful fat quarters. I love everything you sent. I am truly blessed by your generousity. I hope I can figure out how to post a picture. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year. Oh and I forgot one thing Go Blue!!! Sorry Darlene my sister and daughter live in Ohio and they still haven't converted us yet to "OSU fans!!

    Thank you SS/ Shortnsweet

    Thank you for all the wonderful gifts. I sent you a PM. Have not been able to get a message in here. Keeps telling me I am not logged in. Have been enjoying all the messages, seeing others gifts. Wish I could post a picture of all my goodies, but I have become a non person since the board changes. Vivian
