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!

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.

Linda Kohler.   I was just in AZ and tried to get you prickly pear tea bags.  Unfortunately everywhere I went, I was told it was the wrong time of the year.  Everyone was sold out so boo hoo - but I tried.   Had a great time with my sisters and then with my son in N MX too on the same trip.

Wilma   I love Patchabilities too!  I have some of them but would always welcome more - either already made and ready to hang on my small hangers or patterns for me to make my own.

Mine has all the "bought" items I need and am working on projects and "made" items to put in the box. I have some vacation days coming and am hoping to really focus on the gifts now. Trying to make a zippered sewing case of some sort but not great at zippers....maybe something else instead.

Good morning everyone! My SS box is getting full! I hope she likes hers!  It's a cool morning here in KC and I'm getting ready to go to brunch with some high school friends.  have a great Thursday!

How is everyone doing with their Secret Santa boxes?? There's only 6 weeks till shipping day!!!!! Yes, I said 6 weeks. Where has this year gone? Christmas movies start on Hallmark channel this weekend!

I just have to finish up one gift for my Secret Santa box. I have all the makings, just need a container.

Comment by Linda Koller on October 26, 2017 at 5:41am

Wilma, I love, love, love Patch Abilities!!!!!!! I have several of their patterns, but don't think I have Christmas Cactus...will have to double check tho. A friend lost her sister a few months ago and gave me a lot of her patterns and stash. She loved Patch Abilities too.

Wilma,  I'm sure we would all like some small ideas to play with.  Wish I wasn't obligated to two large raffle quilts each year.

This is a quiet group ... must mean you are all helping Santa with his SS stuff.  Me, I a de-stressing!  Trying to sew some binding on a quilt so it can go to the quilters for the Holiday Luncheon giveaway.  My SS Box is almost half-full, need to come up with a few new items...No Magazines, I promise.

Do any of you like the Patch Abilities, Inc. items.  They are 6" x 22" or 6" x 20" wall or door hangers.  I have been making them as part of an applique group in my sewing club.  Working on a December one "Christmas Cactus."  Some are just so cute.  Maybe a pattern or two might finds its way into my SS box.
