Lee would like crazy blocks.  12.5 x 12.5"  Red, Whites, and Blues, of course.  I know that Lee likes live theater, so I was thinking maybe blocks that represented a different Broadway play.  Even…Continue

Correction.....Our new group at Needlespot is Our Quilt Place.

Comment by Linda Koller on January 10, 2022 at 11:26am

As mentioned before, MQP is shutting us down and we are moving to Needlespot. The name for our group will be Our Needle Place. To join you must become a member on, then you can join Our Needle Place.

Again, due to all the moving and training a service dog, I will not be hosting Secret Santa this year. If someone else would like to set up a Secret Santa group on Needlespot, feel free. I will be available for any advice if needed. Otherwise, maybe next year.

Yay - glad it arrived.  Yes, go sew!  Forget all the rest of it for a day, lol.

Kris, the package was by our front door this morning. Thank you for all the beautiful things. The box your husband made is beautiful and i am going to put it on our coffee table where everyone can see it. The fabric, templates and books make me want to start sewing right away - forget about cooking and cleaning and just sew.  Have never used Old Bay seasoning before but am looking forward to trying it. Again thank you for everything. Was fun opening the package this morning.

I will be looking for it. The purple is great and is another color that I like.

Trudyann - latest update on your other package says it is in Troy, NY now, and will be delivered Monday. 

Comment by Kris Howell on January 8, 2022 at 11:55pm

Trudyann - so happy the colors of the towel and potholder will suit the new kitchen!  I know purple doesn't usually fall in the spectrum of colors called fall colors, but I was thinking about purple chrysanthemums and hoped the bronze would tie it in to fall colors. I'll keep tracking the other package and let you know when it heads your way.

Kris, The package arrived a little while ago .sorry i did not get this note off sooner but needed to get a couple of things done for supper as our son and family are bring pizza to our house.The potholder and towel are beautiful and perfect colors for my new kitchen, You do beautiful work.The paper is beautiful and will make beautiful cards. I had decided the next time I ordered some stamping stuff I was going to order some new paper.Now I will not have to.The spatula will be so useful. I really get annoyed with the USPS that they just leave things by the door and do not knock or ring the bell. I just happened to look out the window and saw footprints to the porch.I am looking forward to the other package arriving. Thank you so much for the beautiful gifts.

Trudyann - USPS has failed again.  Which doesn't surprise any of us.  I mailed you two packages at the same time, because two of the things I got you wouldn't fit in the box.  The first of those packages is showing as having been delivered to your front porch.  The other one is still sitting in Phoenix.  I'll keep checking to see when it will arrive for you.  So - enjoy your first Secret Santa package, and look forward to the second one!
