Well ladies, I guess I better add my name to this list before I forget.  I would like a 12.5 x 12.5" scrappy string block.  Recently, I have really gotten in the scrappy string block mood.  I love…Continue

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

Melanie has decided to join the log cabin group, so by now everyone should have the instructions for this on, as it has been the most popular block for our group this year.  She would like the red…Continue

Got my box today and found out it was from Kathy Gurgone which made it extra special as we got to meet Kathy and Joe this summer!  Amongst other fun stuff was a T-shirt for me which said: If found wandering aimlessly around a fabric store return to Tom.  And a T-shirt for Tom which said:  I'm Tom.  I roared with laughter.  There are many other fun things in there and I'll take a picture tomorrow.  Thank you, thank you, Kathy!  Loved finding the box too.  Earlene Fowler's books, all with a quilt block as the title, are great fun reading and I haven't read Fool's Puzzle yet.  Looking forward to it.

SS box got mailed yesterday. Now my goal is to get my blocks finished this week so they can be mailed Monday - have a couple more to do. Kitchen remodeling is almost done -appliances came yesterday and washer, dryer and dish washer will be hooked up in the next day or 2. All the bathroom stuff should be delivered Monday and then the contractor will start the bathrooms. Hard to believe how long we have had to wait for some of the things we ordered. Next project is for me to start taking the wallpaper off the dining room walls - grand children are going to come help remove the wallpaper  so we can get it and the kitchen painted. We use to do our own painting but no more. It is to hard on my back, neck and shoulders and my husband hates painting.

Hope everyone is stay well and safe.

Mailed my SS box, but brought the blocks home to repackage.  Post office wanted $4.20 each instead of $1.78.  Crazy.  So will try and send blocks tomorrow.  What was funny…went to 2 diff POs and they even had different rate from first one.  It is not a parcel.

OMGosh! I am just so flabbergasted and overwhelmed by my SS, Beth, generosity! So many wonderful treasures! I will post pictures very soon!

Yeah, I have my secret pals box delivered today.  You should be receiving your blocks soon, they were mailed yesterday.

Comment by Trudyann Robertson on January 4, 2022 at 9:59am

 Linda , can you send me the list with everyones mailing address. I have a list but seem to remember that one address is wrong. Want to get my Secret Santa box in the mail and then get my blocks finished and in the mail. Thanks for your help. 

Comment by Wilma Schirra-Kays on January 3, 2022 at 4:31pm

Finished my blocks, they will be mailed tomorrow with the SS box.  Beth, you are ambitious…all my fabric is packed so I am going to have to wait to make a quilt.  I am thinking a nice picnic table topper for the May to July period as I have a quilt.  I am marking boxes with contents and yellow tape so I know it is something I need to get out of storage.

Enjoy 2022…

Got so excited about the blocks and I ended up making all my connector blocks so when I receive the other pretty blocks, I can put my quilt together quickly.  Who knew I would be so inspired by the combination.  This way I will have a quilt to hang on the wall from May thru July.
