Sorry Anna, I forgot about your travels.

Yes, shipped some time ago. It should be there. Nothing here yet.

Melanie, you're good. I'm having problems too. As long as I know you sent it. Thank you. So everyone should be getting a package. One package will be late but we got it covered...waiting for an address.

Riana, you may post photos as soon as you open if you wish! I can't wait to see how generous our Secret Santas are this year!!

Riana, Will you be in Lady Lake in 2021? 

If any of you have the quilting book: Wear warm clothes.  That is the look I'm thinking of.  I'm too lazy to go upstairs and look for mine, which I might have put in a  SSS box anyway.

Hello Linda - I have tracking number but did not want to post it here. I can wait until my PM is fixed or you can call me tomorrow and I'll read it to you. Whichever you prefer. You should have my phone from the questionnaire I filled out.

I like all of the ideas I've read 1-3 and some from earlier pages.

I guess I used the wrong term. I AM trying to PM Linda, but when I hit reply nothing happens. I then tried to do a separate PM and my TO box is empty - NO FRIENDS listed. They were there last week, but not today. I reported the problem to the MQP help desk and hope to have an answer soon.

Melanie, you can't " email" via the inbox on must use your regular email method. On here you can " private message" to friends using the " compose" tab, then chose which friend you wish to message by scrolling thru your friends list at top. Next fill in subject, then type your message in comment box. Lastly go below that box and select " send" button ( or it won't go anywhere!). However, l believe Linda prefers confirmation plus photo by regular email.

Mary, l'd be glad to have you all come up to Canada in summer.There's only 2 guestrooms, but we have plenty of room for campers! Don't forget your passports, and leave any guns & ammo at home because you won't be crossing the border with those,lol. Or we could meet in Lady Lake in Jan or Feb., though only 1 small guestroom, however plenty of RV places and motels to stay at close by. As well, we're just 1.5 hr. from Disney World and Universal Studios, so bring along your young grandkids ( the grandads can entertain them while we sew...there's a lovely sewing/ quilting room at the clubhouse here, and machines in the quilters' closet we could use.

Linda, l like #2 but in a winter theme as Mary suggested. That way the quilt can be displayed from early Dec. to Mar. instead of just 3 weeks in Dec.

I've been trying to reply to your email since this afternoon, Linda! MQP won't let me sign out or send emails. Hope this post shows up. My packages went in the mail today and should arrive by Sat, 12/14. Yesterday when I got to the PO to get a bigger box, I found that I had not finished sewing something that I had packed! OOH BOY! Rushed home to sew but could not get back to the PO before bowling. Hope it is OK that I mailed today....SORRY Secret Santa Sister - yours will be be delayed 1 day!.
