    Happy May!

    Well, we finally made it through April! I waved it good bye last night and hopefully, we've turned the tide to getting back to normal.

    So far, we've covered Red Rover, Curves, Pets/ Wildlife, and Made by Hand for our themes.

    We've had a few members drop out and a few resulting adjustments. I hope everyone is still on our Santa Bandwagon and ready to roll into May.

    May's theme is open... Pretty in Pink (or Green) OR Get Out of Town... I don't know about you, but I'm ready for getting out, in town or not!

    Happy May to all of my Santa's. Remember we'll have a check in soon... like June! Can you believe it's that time already!

    Take care and enjoy

    Mask making is slowing down so I'll be getting back to Secret Santa sewing. I've got some catching up to do.

      I'm still in, just slow going right now. I have copied all I need about themes and getting to know me lists. Now for inspiration to set in.
      Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!


        I have to play catch up too...I will endeavor to persevere however.

          Been slowly plodding along. We're heading into winter here and the last few days have certainly announced their arrival. The wind has been very lazy (goes right through you) but the days have been gems - clear skies and warm suns. Have made a few charity quilt tops to hopefully help people who lost their belongings in the recent bush fires around Canberra. Restrictions are easing but I've forgotten what normal is - but it has to be better than things now. Hope everyone is well.


            I have my January and April projects 99% done. I have lots of ideas and plans for the rest, but can't do too much until stores open again. It's the little things that hang me up!

            If I ever got it all together, I'd be too tired to do anything with it.

            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.

            If you would like to join please "subscribe", "join". Read the Rules in the discussion section and sign. You will rec
