Mimi, 

Your quilt was huge success, I posted a photo of all 3 quilts on here. they could not make it till last Sat because the dad was busy, so all the hurry was for not. Kids were shy but seemed pleased.

See you at retreat!

You all are just not going to believe the beautiful gift we got from Timeless Treasures. 

I'd like to propose a game. Since I'm getting so many "door prizes" I thought I would wrap them up and have a "white elephant" gift exchange, if we get enough for everyone to get one. If you have something nice that you don't plan to use, some fat quarters, notions, kits, etc., feel free to wrap them too. We put everyone's name in a jar and the first one pulled gets to choose one of the packages. The second named person gets to steal from the first or open a new gift. It goes on like that until the last person. The first then gets to have a turn to steal if she wishes. The only rule is that once an item has been stolen 3 times, the third person gets to keep it and nobody can steal it from her. 

What do you all think? This is for new items, not the "I don't need this anymore" free for the taking stuff.

Okay...I almost had a stroke here. I deleted the last post I put on because I realized that was tacky and I don't want you all to feel obligated to ask. Then I got a message that what I thought was the whole post was deleted. Thankfully, it was only my latest one. Whew!

Mary,    I like this idea.  We do this at our Guild Christmas party and it's so much fun and lots of laughs.  I'm sure I could find something to add.  Local quilt shop is having a 40% off sale on everything in shop and I'm going there tonight.  Let's see what I find.

Our LQS is also online    www.mmija.com      Their sale is also online if anyone is interested.

Wow...we are gonna have a fun "white elephant" exchange. Please don't feel like you have to buy anything. I just went through my closet and found a couple of kits that I know I won't do because I waited long enough that they don't really fit my decor (ain't I fancy?). If you have something new that you know you won't use, wrap it up and bring it. I have 10 items myself right now. Any we don't need for the exchange will become door prizes we will draw for.

Great. Don't forget to wrap them so nobody sees what they are. I'm so excited! Can't hardly stand it.

Oh my goodness! I just got a big box from Connecting Threads. Couldn't remember ordering anything over the past few days. Opened it and there is an amazing amount of gifts for our retreat from them! I just cannot believe how much they sent. It's a good thing I'm an honest woman or you all would never see most of it! lol
