    Thank you, Cowgirl Quilter!!!

    Oh my goodness - what a treasure!

    Thank you so very much for all the beautiful gifts - I'm all verklempt over here! Your gifts are so incredibly thoughtful, from the giraffe wall hanging to the table runner & towels that match my new kitchen, to the glorious holiday kitty cat fabric, the appliqued pillow., zipper bags, and leafy potholders, the adorable woollie valentine bears and st paddy clovers, the ice cream sundae pin cushion - I'm sure I'm leaving something out! - so beautiful and thoughtful. I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate all the time you put into making these beautiful gifts and how personalized you made them!

    The giraffe - oh my! I've always loved giraffes, they are such gorgeous animals, so graceful. When I was pregnant with my son, I saw the most adorable stuffed giraffe when out with my mom one day. It was very early in my pregnancy, and since I had lost a baby before, I was very careful not to get my hopes up, you know, so we weren't buying "baby things" until we were more sure I would carry to term. Well. The day my son was born, my mom gave me that little stuffed giraffe! She went back home from the visit, then conspired with my then-husband and they cooked up Operation Get The Giraffe - the store had already sold it, but they worked with the owner to find another one and ship it to my mom; there were all sorts of impediments, I actually can't recall now LOL.

    My son is now a freshman in college, and his father and I (very amicably) split up two years ago. This is my first "alone" xmas in many years, as my son is spending xmas with his dad this year. So your gift of the giraffe wall hanging was most especially meaningful and I am so very grateful to you for making this such a lovely Christmas <3

    I am so glad you are enjoying your gifts. I had fun making them for you! Merry Christmas!

    Secret Santa 2019

    About this Group

    Membership is now closed for 2019.

    We had a lot of fun with the Secret Santa 2018 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 &quot;down and dirty&quot; 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 can be smaller projects so any challenge is not overly difficult. Choose whatever difficulty you are comfortable with. You may also, twice a year, swap out the named theme for one of your own choosing. You may also purchase rather than hand make 3 items during the year.

    If you would like to join please &quot;subscribe&quot;, &quot;join&quot;. Read the Rules in the discussion section and sign. You will receive a questionaire from the mod
