Okay, may I just state it officially here: WOW clap 

Thank you Redwork for the gorgeous sparkly panel and two partial panels (click to biggify!),
     


a new-to-me fine point Frixion pen, the Perfect For Me applique pattern AND the Hello Kitty fabric (she's even got a RED bow!)!!!!


I'm not sure if you did your homework or if you are Just. That. Good. at picking out stuff for me, but this is way more than I could ever have expected and I am absolutely thrilled with every single piece. Thank you so much!!  Hug

I received a beautiful set of Christmas tea towels, a Taz Christmas ornament....so cute on my tree, and a fat quarter of Australian fabric with Aus animals....I'm love it!  Thank you Bev!  I have some other Australian fabric my husband brought me...I may use this in a throw with that!  I also got a beautiful Christmas card with Aus pics .....I will keep it in my sewing room to enjoy all year.
Hugs and thanks Bev!  pressie :santa1:  gift ss

All the gifts are so nice.  I love the table runners/toppers made by Gimpy and Laura.  The tree panel and pattern are so pretty, Fiber, sent by Redworks. Good work everyone.

Now, believe it or not, I finally took pics. Here they are: My gift from Hummerlou.



Now this is the inside of the scissors and needle case shown above. Isn't it beautiful?



I can't wait to organize my different types of needles in this. Thanks again, Hummer.
Now I will post more pictures of Christmas decorations.

Love, love, love all the gifts. And being the lazy, I want to see it now type, I changed many of the pictures to the large size so we wouldn't have to click back and forth to the gallery. I think everyone has done a super job with the gifts this year.

And here is what Cassie and I got.
Cassie got an ornament, fold up shopping tote, notepad and GORGEOUS hand crocheted cowl shawl from Alicia (quiltmom9). She loves it and plans to wear it Christmas eve, among other occasions.



Here she is wearing the shawl. Ignore the look on her face, her dad was messing with her.



My secret Santa was Nancy(TxMusicMom). She sent me so many goodies. Fabric, fabric and more fabric. I adore the western one and the blue is so perfect for Texas projects, which I am sure she knew  winking and the other pretty FQs. She wrapped them all in the red bandana fabric. So cute. She sent darling Christmas buttons which are hiding in the picture I just realized, and Christmas napkins which I totally intend to use Christmas eve when everyone comes over. I love the little vintage look Santa sign BUT as if allllll that were not enough, she sent chocolate!!!!!! :santa1:  Oh yes she did. A whole bag of Dove dark chocolate which is now safely "being treasured" in my sewing room.

Wow, what awesome lovely gifts, such thought and care in every one, they are all beautiful and Im chuckling at the sparkly tree panels for the sparkly chicken FiberBabble  hahaha 

 gift2 gift2  So glad our gifts made it safe and sound, I will pass messages along to mum for you Nancy. Gwennie you are now the proud owner of Laura's first ever project using a sewing machine, she designed the cat cushion cover all by herself, she wanted you to have something girly and something garden-ish because you like those things and something kitty to represent herself :-)
Marian, so happy you like your gifts, the teas are yummy, good luck choosing one, I can never decide myself and Im glad you liked Laura's photos on the note cards, I thought it would be something a little different :-)

I need to get pics of laura and mums SS taken and on here

Breezie, your gift is from my DD Cassie. She designed and made them herself so she is very worried wondering if you like them.

Nancy, no worries here on that fabric. Can never go wrong with western.  Thumbup

Of course.....after I got back to Houston, I found a wonderful collection of Texas themed fabric at a thread and monogram store not far from here that also carries reduced priced quilting fabric.  I know they have a website...  Thread Art.  Their sale corner is my FAV haunt....$4-5 a yard....Moda!  (I think it's like last year's or something).  But....really got the bargains at that Black Friday, so I'm glad you like it all! Wanted to make something, but....between bouncing back and forth from SC to here and other projects....sigh.

Hi All,

I got from Sheemos a beatiful mug, mug coaster and a pretty bag that she made (I've already put my bits and pieces for knitting in).

Thank you so much!

I will try to post pictures this week.

Gloria, glad you like your hat. You are the first adult friend I crocheted a hat for! DH and I really like that soup, sprinkled with shredded cheese and those tortilla strips. Didn't think I should send shredded cheese. ( :

Hey don't worry about it at all. I am so amazed you do all that traveling alone. You remind me of the old Dunkin Donuts commercial, "time to make the donuts". The man is going back and forth so often, he meets himself at the door. I keep waiting for you to meet yourself at the state line!  lol!  
I loved the gift.  hug08 

Love your hat Gloria. And I bet you can never go wrong with hot soup where you live.  snow 

Qbee, were you afraid your gift would be too "cheesy"?  Cheesy

I have been eve's dropping on everyone's gifts.  They are all so wonderful.  Everyone here has a great eye and good judgment in picking just the right thing.  What fun even to watch and not participate.  

Maybe a spring swap?  Hum?  Just maybe? paint
