    Holy Cow, It's October 1st!

    I was going through, minding my own business and all of the sudden I realized- it's October 1st!

    Merciful heavens, Gabby got her flea/tick and heartworm meds (on the first as always). I've been off and on here all day and it never dawned on me to Welcome October to all of the Secret Santas. I'm sooooooooooo bad. 😣

    Anyway we're a month closer to Christmas. 2 months from our mailing deadline. Where has this year gone!

    October's Theme- October- Applique or Embroidery by Auntimern

    Enjoy appliqueing or doing some embroidery. My embroidery machine is gone with the wind, so applique it is!

    Have a great month!

    Check in please and let me know if there's anything I can do to help. Also be thinking of who would like to take the reins for Secret Santa next year.

    I love applique but I might try some embroidery! Should be fun!


      Thank you for the reminder about the heartwormflea & tick meds as we do ours on the first also. However, we wait a couple of days on the flea & tick meds because the vet recommended not doing it all at once because some dogs get sick from having both given at the same time.

      I am hoping to get projects done soon. So much other things going on, I need to get back to work on my Secret Santa projects.


        Wow October already. Katrina you are doing a tremendous job with the group.
        Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!


          Yes, October has arrived. Got here fast in a very slow moving year.

          I still have one project to decide on, quite a few completed and the others are in various stages of completion.

            Where has the year gone? And what a year its been!! Happy to report all my goodies are finished and ready - just waiting for Christmas wrapping paper to come into the shops. Will check today. Have applied "quilters imagination " to a couple of the themes but I think they will work out. They seem to fit in with my Secret Santa's wishlist.

            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
