          14. Quilting/sewing project: I have a really neat paper pieced quilt kit that my son gave me for Christmas several years ago that I need to get out and tackle. I put it on my "Fabulous finishes" list this year, so maybe I'll actually do it.

My husband, sons, and grandsons are team ropers as well as ranch cowboys. I love making quilts in bright colors, and most of them are scrappy, it seems.

                        About this Group

                        Secret Santa 2020

                        Membership is now opened for Secret Santa 2020

                        We had a lot of fun with the Secret Santa 2020 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 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.
