Secret Santa

We will have all year to prepare packages for our Secret Santa quilter. Tutorials for gift item ideas will be posted. We can share photos of items we've made or ideas for gifts. Share if there is a fabulous sale going on so we can take advantage of sale prices to purchase gifts. We will fill a medium Priority Mail box with lovely and fun gift items for that special Secret Santa quilter. Come join us!

I found some great ITH projects for the sewing room like thread catchers and organizer pockets. I need to get some supplies to make them as they are not items I keep on hand. Hoping to get to JoAnn tomorrow to get some stuff I need.

Chris, Linda's items are great for adders to the box.  I too have an embroidery machine but have not attempted any of the in the hoop projects.  For me I love candle mats, potholders or skillet handle holders, pouches are great for carrying / storing little items.  Hope this helps.

Need to get my box and do an inventory.  Also all knitting projects are in one drawer, can't remember what is for who?

I'm still working on some items

How is everyone coming with their Secret Santa packages? We are one month from ship date!!!! Where has the year gone?????

Comment by Linda Koller on November 11, 2017 at 10:01am

Chris - coasters, mug rugs, Christmas ornaments, potholders, candle mats, zippered pouches (or instead of zippers use velcro), journal cover, mug cozy....Hope this gave you some ideas that you can work with.

I am really trying to find some small items to make to put in the box for my SS pal. Would really like some ideas for things other than table runners. I have an Embroidery machine so I can make lots of items. Just not sure what to do at this point. In the Hoop projects would be great so they can be finished quickly. What would YOU want in your box. Share some ideas with us please.

What!  I was knitting and reading (simple rows) when I felt a tug on the loose yarn.   The dog was eating it!!  I pulled out this nasty wet clump,  with her backing up and falling and getting tangled on the rest of the project.  It is lovely graduated color yarn.  Hope it dries OK.

Thank you for trying, Ruth Ann! If I get desperate I have a couple friends I can call on. Usually I could find it at the Botanical Gardens gift shop or at one of the shops in Old Town Scottsdale where I lived. They always had it on hand for the tourists.

Pam, hope you had a fun lunch with your friends.

I wrapped all the gifts in my Secret Santa box except one. I'm considering using it to wrap around a hot cocoa mix in a jar. I don't have any jars so perhaps I'll just get an unbreakable container instead. Oh gosh, hope I got enough cocoa! I bought several bags of chocolate chips and a bag of mini-marshmallows, but forgot to check my cocoa stash!!

Need to go inventory my chocolate yet I know.  And decide what knitted thing to include.  Getting very curious about who is sending to me???  I can be so mature at times.
