Okay, Friends. Here's the story about my Secret Santa recipient, AQM9 / Alicia. I was so glad to have her name and I made her a gift and I sent it and she has it. But. . . she won't open it. She says she wants me to have my gift before she opens hers.

I PM'ed Alicia to tell her I don't care if and when I get a gift from her, I'm excited to have her open the gift I made for her. She hasn't responded, though, so won't you all help me?

Please encourage Alicia to open her gift! I think she's been feeling a little blah and down in the dumps, and maybe her gift will be a bit of a day brightener.

Deb, so glad you like the wall hanging. I love anything with Santa Claus, so, I thought you would like it. I actually have a Santa collection. Our mail is slow and alas no parcel yet. Maybe tomorrow. Thanks for the nice compliments ladies!

Open that gift, Alicia. I can't wait to see it. Maryann is so creative, I'm anxious to see what she made.

Aliciaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa... Qbee is not the only one that has not got her gift yet, my partner is still waiting for hers but I opened mine so that she can see how wonderfully thoughtful and happy her gift made me. I think the most valuable gift to Qbee would be for you to open it so that she can be happy that you like her gift. I hope that I had reached that inner voice...so lets see what cha got...the gift for christmas is also when the receiver shares her joy...

Alicia spare QBee the misery and angst, open her gift, do her the favour, save her christmas soul - open the gift (please!!)

Betweens that quilt is beautiful, love all the santa's, well done marian, its jsut perfect.

Has anyone heard from Dara? laura is dying to know if she liked her SS gift she made her.

Gwennie I used my bag on tuesday, thank you muchly, it fitted the two small boxes and all the cards I had to take to the post office, was comfy to carry everything and worked beautifully. the ladies in the post office loved it, thank you xoxo

My gift from Alicia arrived! And I tore right into it! Waiting is not my syle. Cheesy

I got a Fiskars project tote bag, reusable market bag that folds up into a case the size of a cell phone (!), and a nice pad to keep grocery or to-do or e better yet quilt store lists on!

Pictures will need to wait until we're back home.

Now Alicia can for sure open her package!

Thank you, Alicia. Again and again, thank you!! lovehearts

Cheesy clap Yeah! Christmas parcel arrived from my Secret Santa! It's absolutely beautiful! A Christmas mini quilt! I just love it. It was also wrapped in some pretty fabric I can use in a quilt. I will post a picture later today when Gwennie brings my camera over! I love it. Thank-You Deb! This swap was a fun one.

I haven't heard whether my gift has been opened yet. I assume it has and Brenda hasn't had time to post. I haven't seen her on here much lately, so she must be incredibly busy.

Perfect Marian.. so glad that the mailman decided to get his but in gear!! I had mailed my Signature blocks at the same time and Linda2B got them last week...

It is very hard to decided what to do for the secret santa`s but it was very helpful to have the likes and dislikes post. I had resourced to that a couple of times to figure it out...

Have a great new year looking forward to 2011

Has anyone still not recieved or opened their gifts yet? Seems a few are getting confused as to if their present arrived etc, just wondering.
