Happy Dance!! Happy Dance!! And I really did twirl around!

My Santa is Sharon/Womster!! It was a big box & stuffed full. I'll start with my favorite a yd of Dr Who fabric, I'm going to make a curtain for the sewing room. LOL.....I'm watching Dr Who now. Thanks!
*You did a wonderful job on the bottle apron, love the bit of bling. Your machine does great work.
*I thought you gave me 2 patterns but closer inspection I see there are 4 in one of the packets. There all El's & then none that I have.
*The mug rugs will cover my for the whole year. I like the stars & hearts your machine makes.
*I've never seen a little bug needle threader...something I need.
*The needle tweezer will be perfect for pulling threads.
Love you LQS....it sells things I've never seen like the double sided seam ripper. A large & a small ripper. (:
*Love the Dimples packet of FQ...love that print. And the aqua FQ are beautiful I can't wait to use them all in a project. Maybe a spring table topper.
*The colors in the jelly roll are beautiful & so many different fabrics.
All are sitting in a beautiful covered box with a snap to close it.

Sharon.....you did a wonderful job & were very generous.

Love & Prayers.....Kathy

magnetic memo pad for the refrig.
notepad book with coffee mugs on it (how did you know coffee is in my blood)
a tape measure (mine had scotch tape on it)
organizer for pens and pencils, sewing needles and bobbins.
needle organizer.
wall hanging kit (beautiful colors) I'll start it after the holidays.
2 mug rugs, 1 with snowman and on the other side the nativity . The other 1 is a patriotic angel.
a coffee cup mug rug of a sewing machine and it has my initials on it.
a paperback mystery which I'll take on the flight to NY
A frog LED keychain that also croaks (to funny)
Reese's snack size cup bag. I'll have to hide them from hubby.
Enclosed also was a letter from Mary about herself and her family.
Thank you so very much for all the great items.

My secret Santa was Flo in Missouri she sure spoiled me! I received 4 large tea cup mug rugs with matching smaller cups one set for each season, 3 Christmas table pads , a bag that I hope to attach to my walker, a needle case, 2 table runner patterns, hand lotion, a lighted needle threader, chocolate caramels from Wethers and Ghiradelli, several old quilt magazines to look at and some very pretty Christmas pens and my favorite some pretty quilted tree ornaments! Best of all she included a pretty card and a letter about herself!!
THANKS AGAIN FLORENCE FOR BEING WONDERFUL SANTA!! MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE May you remember the reason we celebrate this season!
Love, your quilting sister in California , Beth

I got up this morning and went to the gym, while walking on the dread mill, I realized, Hey it's opening day. What a goofball I am. We had some shopping to do, since we got snowed in yesterday. WOW my Secret Santa was wonderful to me. She is Judi Cabanaw aka Grammiequilts. I received this box that was packed full of presents all wraps in Christmas paper. I got Embroidered mug rugs that are just so stinking cute, love, love, love, them. Cute wall hanging kit called Cherry Hut. Multi pocket tablet tote kit, super cute. A stack of Fat Quarters, darling materials. An ice skate mug rug kit. Black and White Tote, with Baby it cold outside, boy your not kidding. Note pad for my frig, A jar of buttons, boy those sure come in handy. A plaque that says "Because I said Sew" hanging that one over my sewing machine. Seasonal hankies, how did she know I always keep a pack in my car? Oh yes Chocolate too Lindt Lindor Chocolates. Thank You sew much for all the sweet gifts. Your way to kind.

My Secret Santa was Beth (bethstreet), and oh my what a wonderful box of surprises I have received!

I received the cutest snowman rug mug PLUS a mug! Also, apron, purse, and a very cute penguin wall hanging patterns. The Christmas fabric is regal - fit for a queen. Love the minkie - I can't wait to try the pattern listed on the package. Plus a layer cake - I have the perfect pattern for that. And then there was a sewing organizer filled with lots of goodies: flower-head pins (my favorite), side-threading needles (I just saw these in a catalog), a neat retractable tape measure, these really cool itty bitty scissors with a rubber tip protector, a 'press to the dark side' bookmark, and probably some more stuff I haven't even found yet. And to top it all off, a wonderful confetti cake mix for my birthday - plus balloons!! Oh, plus my favorite candy - Lindt!
