"I love, love birds.  I will probably do a cardinal or a bluejay.  Do all he blocks have to be the same, or can you do maybe half of one and half of the other?"

Welcome to Secret Santa group.  This is a fun group and hope you join in on the fun of chatting now and then as you have time.

Gail, feel free to take part in all the discussions. Sometime in January I will be asking to see who wants to participate next year. Then I send out questionnaires. Secret Santa sisters will be assigned usually in April. Then  you have all year to work on things for your SS box. We mail them out around the first Saturday in December. 

This year we  had a couple of contests. There are discussions all year trying to find answers to questions that maybe weren't on the questionnaires. We post tutorials for gift ideas. We have general discussions too.

So welcome to the group. Take part so we can get to know you for next year!

Linda
