Did anyone hear from Jonnie over the holidays?

It is always my favorite swap of the year. I look forward to putting the package together all year.

I'm so happy to hear that you gals enjoyed the Secret Santa program and are looking forward to 2019. I've already started my package and have some prizes for Kathy's impossible missions! So give me a couple weeks or so to finish settling into my home. But keep an eye out for Secret Santa 2019 coming soon!

Happy New Year to All!!

Kathy, I had a good laugh reading your message and rereading it to my husband. He laughed also.

All the gifts turned out to be cool stuff. Just what a quilter loves!!

No not at all Kathy. I totally agree. The first thing I thought of was I need to set up a basket to start collecting for 2019 Secret Santa. This was my first year participating but I definitely plan to sign up again.

Happy New Year to everyone.  Is it terrible that I am already looking forward to next year's Secret Santa box?  

As mothers and grandmothers, it seems that we are always in charge of making sure that everyone else gets something that they want or need.  Whereas, I usually get something that I wonder "What were they thinking?"

For instance, this year from my family, I got a make-up kit (I don't wear make-up), I got some pierced earrings, (I don't have pierced ears and I seldom wear jewelry), and I got a lot of hand-made soaps. (Now those I really love) 

However, from my Santa sisters, I got all the type of things that I love to use and do and read and eat, from ladies who truly understand my passions.  Thank you to each and everyone of you.  Now, could one of you fly to Atlanta and teach my family how to Christmas

Look at the adorable apron.  Then so many beautiful books and patterns, bobbins, pins, thread, chocolate, towels, cute page markers, and the beautiful advent calendar from Spain.  Kids were fighting who gets it when it is made.

Let me try and post all my goodies I received.  I was so truly blessed.  She even thought of the dogs.  Wow, Kathy, you know my babes.  They fit and are so beautifully embroidered.

Comment by Pam Atkins on December 28, 2018 at 10:55am

Here's a picture of my goodies!  Sooo many! I'm sorry the picture is so big.  Cant figure out how to make it smaller.  Thank you so much!

PS. Kathy, there was just the one.
