BTW, I'm going to get Tink's nose checked...she told me that this box came from a dog free house. We were chatting about this on this thread, and I talked with Grann about it couldn't be from her...cuz Tink told me she didn't smell Gus and Heidi.
Thank you again Grann...I will post pics in the morning...too tired from the craft show to look for the camera.
Just to let you know, I made everything in there except the pins and glue, and the box. I wanted to put some bones in but as you can see there was no more room. As I have said before I don't buy gifts, I have made my gifts since I was 9 years old, so it was hard to know what to put in there for you. The box came first, so it was tough finding what would fit in it.

I'm off to bed too, back is killing me. G'night all, and thanks for a wonderful fun day!!!!

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.
I'm starting now, too, Terri! I did this past year but then with all the evacuations....I may have to send girliegirl another box when I find the rest. :

I just got home and wanted to say thank you to my secret santa, ljs317 for the wonderful gifts. She sent me a teapot, some handbag kits, a pattern, LOTS of pretty fabric, and some other small goodies. Thank you very much. Now, I have 30 pages to catch up on!

Had to work today so just got home and could hardly contain my self - I was like a little kid in a candy shop. I received a wonderful package from my Secret Santa BrushandThimble. She was very thoughtful and generous. There was fabric and footies (cute pink socks), black and white fabrics to die for, a large package of charm fabrics that were already prewashed AND starched. A great book on needlecraft terms, a puzzle book and patterns. Brushand Thimble - Thank you very much - it was an awesome package =) Koko
