"Riana, thats a great pickle dish.  I would probably do it by hand, I like doing hand work and I get much better accuracy by hand.  Haven't done a pickle dish yet, it's on my bucket list though.  "

"Wow, these blocks I've seen are gorgeous.  I've got mine done but, very traditional, kind of a novice compared to some of you.  Well, anyway mine will be in the mail next week."

UFOs

If you're a REAL quilter, you have at least one UFO (unfinished object) and one WIP (work in progress) stashed in the closet or stacked on a shelf. Maybe you just need quilting suggestions, or maybe a fresh eye from a new online friend can help with block arrangements. How about a UFO swap? Any UFO conversation is welcome.See More

"She pays pretty well I'd say.  What a nice way to "buy" more fabric, doing something you love to do.  That's a win, win in my book."

Welcome to Secret Santa group.  This is a fun group and hope you join in on the fun of chatting now and then as you have time.

Gail, feel free to take part in all the discussions. Sometime in January I will be asking to see who wants to participate next year. Then I send out questionnaires. Secret Santa sisters will be assigned usually in April. Then  you have all year to work on things for your SS box. We mail them out around the first Saturday in December. 

This year we  had a couple of contests. There are discussions all year trying to find answers to questions that maybe weren't on the questionnaires. We post tutorials for gift ideas. We have general discussions too.

So welcome to the group. Take part so we can get to know you for next year!

Linda
