    Yeah We made it through another year!

    2017 is drawing to a close. Christmas is three days away and it looks like everyone will be in one of two groups. Gently opening each Secret Santa present, folding the paper neatly and cherishing their gifts, or, some of us who frantically destroy wrappings in our rush to see each precious Secret Santa gift. Even Carlie will be opening her gift that my Secret Santa sent to her (Carlie is one of those from the first group believe it or not)

    Don't forget your last commitment to the Secret Santa 2017 group and upload pictures of all your gifts to the Gallery for all to see. And don't forget to thank your Secret Santa in a Discussion group thread for her thoughtfulness, talent and caring. :-) Merry Christmas!

    A BIG thank you to you Carlie, for being our hostess/administrator/guide/and all those other hats you wore. Merry Christmas to all.
    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

          Thank you for another successful swap. Already looking forward to next year. You did great keeping us all on task, even me....I may not be on schedule, but Ido manage to get it done, and sent on time for Christmas. You rocked it in style, oh fearless leader.

            Yes, I too want to say thanks for taking the swap on. I know there is so much to deal with in life putting another duty on our plate has got to be a challenge. Like Marilyn I am looking forward to next years swap, I have so many ideas floating in my head, I better write them down or I know I will forget them.

                Thank you so much for all of the work of putting the swap together. It is so tempting at the moment to open the gifts as every child is sleeping in bed, dh is working on his own projects, I am in my warm pjs with a cup of hot tea. But I will be a good girl and wait. I, personally, love to savor opening each one.

                    Thank you Carlie and to my SS Beth. I've been looking at posts of Beth's projects and getting a bit nervous. Her projects are so perfect and beautiful. So do we open tonight or tomorrow. I do have a confession to make.. was just sort of rearranging the packages and well the fabric wrapping was sort of slipping and yes I peeked but not all the way but I seen a zipper. Oh my a zipper! I'm dying inside. A gift with a zipper. Are you kidding me? Well to late now the gifts are mailed and soon to be opened. Merry Christmas.

                      Thank you Carlie for hosting this year. You did a wonderful job! And thanks to everyone for ensuring your gifts arrived at their destinations in time! Thanks, too, to Juliet Taylor. I haven't opened the gifts yet, but I know from looking at her albums on the Forum that everything in my packages is sure to be beautiful.
                      Now I would just like to say Merry Christmas to all and a hope for a truly wonderful 2018!

                        Carlie,
                        I will join the rest of the ladies in thanking you for running this swap. I know it takes a lot of effort to keep track of all of us goofballs over the course of the year. You did a really good job, even when it got a little tricky at the end!
                        Merry Christmas to all!

                            At last I have a few minutes--I just wanted to add my 2 cents to the great job Carlie did. She kept us all inspired and on track. I hope that those that were unable to finish take a few minutes to read thru the comments about the gifts and see what they missed. Again thanks Carlie for all your hard work.

                              Thank you so much for everything Carlie (Noel). You did a fantastic job! This year was a lot of fun! We had some great challenges both sewing and even personally, but we made it! I can't wait to get started again!! Like I said in a previous post, lets see if we can get more people involved. I know people say they will join and then they drop out. I don't know how we can encourage people to stay involved. I know it's really hard when you get behind. I got behind this year due to some personal things going on, but I managed to get caught up and I'm so glad I did!!! Let's start strong and finish strong in 2018!!! What a great group!!!!!
