    Yippeee!

    I am finished with all of the projects for the year. I am very glad that we were able to have the complete list of themes for the year at the beginning of the year as it helped greatly with planning and picking out projects. Having the name of our person early was also nice.

    How is everyone else getting along this October?

    Doing great! I'm planning on digging everything out of the drawer and making sure all of my projects are ready to wrap. lol, which means I need to go to the storage building to bring some wrapping paper home!

    Are there any suggestions to labeling the projects? SS newbie here and I don't want to leave out any steps.

        I have all mine done now. I even got them wrapped yesterday!!! Then I realized I forgot to take pictures of them :-( Granted I don't have to email myself pics of what I finished (like you guys do ) but I really DO like to keep pics of what I made :-/

        Yes don't forget to take pics of what you made and email me a copy for the file. But the person who had my name doesn't have to email me pictures :-)

          I'm working on one now. It has some potentially tricky bits, but we will see how it goes. I like the look of it so far!
          Then, I too, have to pull out all of the separate pieces to see where I am exactly. I have a couple things I'm waiting on from an order I placed, but if they don't make it before I have to ship the box, I'll survive.

          Congrats on being completely done!

            I still have one to go & I'm just stumped. I may just need to use this one as my "freebie" and do something outside of the theme.

              AMG - which one are you stuck on? I bet we could give you some ideas. Some of these quilters have pretty fabulous imaginations and they look at things in very different ways!

              I went back through and double checked to make sure I was hitting all of the targets for the themes. A couple I'm going to the edge of the box, if not a bit outside to get the ideas.

              I have a couple more to finish off!

                Getting there but the thinking cap isn't working very well.

                  I've still got one to complete and then it's time to wrap!! Thanks for the reminder Carlie that I need to take pictures before they get all wrapped up. I would be very upset if I had to unwrap everything after I got them all ready.

                    Ginny, I took my pictures and emailed Carlie. I had to go to the storage building to gather wrapping supplies. It really made me miss Howard, he always wrapped and I fixed the tags.

                    Mike started pulling out gift bags... I had to laugh, we'd gotten everyone's bags back from last Christmas to refill for this Christmas. Now to see if what we purchased for the kiddos this year for Christmas will fit in the same bags. I foresee trips to the Dollar Store to pick up new bags.

                      Togpine - I couldn't decide on anything for the challenge yourself on, which seems silly, lol. I finally decided to use one of my theme swaps & I think it will be a nice substitution.

                        I'm done! Took pictures, wrapped, boxed up and labeled. I also put a reminder in my phone to ship on December 1! This is my first time in this swap so I've been a little nervous thinking "Is it good enough"? I am letting those negative thoughts go and looking at the positive. As I was making my gifts I prayed for the person I was making them for. I'm so glad we got our names early so I could pray specifically for that person. How am I going to wait now until Christmas???

                          I'm finally done! This is my first swap too and it's been such a great experience. Now to wrap...

                            AMG, I am stuck on that one also. When I first saw that one, I thought of foundation paper piecing but then noticed it was a theme for June (I think). So after thinking, and finding it impossible to come up with something, I also am going to use one of the freebie months instead. I am sure my recipient will enjoy it -- maybe even better than whatever I could have possibly come up with for that last theme.

                              I finished my last project last night! ALL DONE! Now to wrap it up and box it up and have it ready to go to the post office. Very excited.

                              About this Group

                              We had a lot of fun with the Secret Santa 2017 group last year. A lot of happy people received beautiful handmade gifts from their Secret Santa's. Each person made and received 12 gifts at Christmas that were made throughout the year, one a month based on a given theme. We learned new things, challenged our skills in a non stressful way and got "down and dirty" creative. Plus at the end of the year we get 12 great gifts for Christmas!

                              This group is a commitment as you are signing on to create 12 gifts during the year. They are smaller projects so any challenge is not overly difficult. You also, twice a year, get to swap out the named theme for one of your own choosing. You may also purchase rather then handmake 3 items during the year.
