    What great gifts!

    I'd like to know more about it, too. Is this one that starts over annually on a specific date. Is there a possibility for new people to join. Thanks.

    Yes, it's done monthly and you have to indicate by a PM to the person who runs the swap that you'd like to be in it. So some months you can do it and others not. It's a different partner and you can choose wether you want to do overseas postage or not. It's money limit is $10 before postage which is about $15 in the US for a medium sized box, but most folks also shop their stashes and places like Tues Morning, Big Lots, Dollar Stores and make goodies such as pin cushions, mug rugs anything you'd like to do and send. Check out the thread http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-109109-1.htm

    Suzanne has just had to give it up, but we have a person who has volunteered to do it so look for May Secret Pal and join in. It's as much fun to pack and buy as it is to get!

    I received my package from Terry Russell - with lots of goodies! Lifesavers, with my favorite flavor pineapple, a fluffy blue flowered pin cushion, a date book with a kitty on it (I love kitties!) six pieces of fabric in blues and purples, a pair of thread snippers, two rotary replacement blades, and a box of spring-decorated band-aid type bandages so I don't get any blood on the quilt! I'm sorry I don't have a picture, Terry! But Thank You so very much for everything! It was a great package to receive in the mail! Bless you!
