Ok....I OPENED!!!!! TEEHEE.....Am about to be late for church, but have to post pictures.

Schnookie gave me the most adorable rooster pin cushion (gamecock in this household....lol...for the U. of S. Carolina Gamecocks). I don't have a hand made pin cushion....LOVE it! She also gave me a pattern for four more cute pin cushions and the most adorable snow man pin she painted herself. I will wear it to preschool tomorrow!


Breeziepines gave me the CUTEST wooden tool tote all painted up on both ends with quilt squares! It has a cute saying on the front...."Quilts are fabric with attitude!" In it was THREE pairs of scissors, quilting pins, a double ended washable marker, an ergonomic seam ripper (I didn't have one and wanted one!!!!) a set of black and white thread spools, and the cutest zebra striped rotary cutter! I'M SO EXCITED! Thank you so so much!






Sorry the pics are sideways......late for rehearsal! Have fun everyone and Happy Secret Santa!!!

shemoocows, oh my goodness!!! I can't thank you enough for the beautiful gifts in my SS package. They are all so precious and each one is my favorite. Sorry you had to pay so much to get it to the States. I'm very grateful for the cup--the Birds of Australia--which will be looked at daily but never used for drinking.

Sorry I won't make it online for the chat. I am having back spasms since last night and am under the influence of muscle relaxers. Have fun and I can't wait to see all the pictures.
I forgot to put mine in my gallery so will do that now and then put it on here.

Merry Christmas to all!

Jill

My gift is from TexasMusicMom and my camera batteries are apparently dead? She made me an adorable Santa wallhanging and included this cool wood brooch that has TINY pieces of different woods making a quilt block. THere is also a crazy little light that straps on your finger! What a cool little gadget, will be useful when I am crocheting with dark yarn in the evening.

Thank you so much Nancy. I will post pics ASAP (dumb batteries).

Oh, I am so sorry that I didn’t make it to the opening and Chat of our SS Gifts, DH and I got carried away with decorating the stairs and with Mr. Marley it wasn’t easy ended up having to lock him in his crate for awhile…poor puppy cry2

I am very excited to let you know that my SS really made me feel so special! dance Linda 2B was my SS and sent me these wonderful gifts! A cute little Snowman runner (the fabric sparkles) he even has a twinkle in his beaded eyes! Linda put the cutest label on the back with a little snowman face. I am going to hang it on the wall right when you come into my house, so that everyone gets to see it right away! It’s so cute, it put a smile on my face every time I look at it! Linda also sent me a Nine-Patch quilt book, has 7 quilts in it and 2 bonus pillows, all very cute and I am already trying to decide which one to make first, may have to move my next project down one lol The little ornament Linda sent me is a little Lady Bug with Red shoes and polka doted socks…too cute it is! Also Linda sent along a little pocket calendar for next year…something I really need to use…so not to miss out on anything again…
Thank you Hug so much Linda 2B I love Smitten my gifts and wish you a Very :merryxmas: and Happy New Year too!
