Secret Santa Opening
maryq Send a Message
Good Morning Girls

I know you all are so excited to open your Gifts! I guess it's time!

I was awake at 0500 this morning, thinking about how excited we all are to open packages, but at the same time my heart is heavy for those who have not received a package yet. To say I am disappointed in those Santas who have not mailed in plenty of time, well, is an understatement. I won't get into it much here, I'd like this to be the Happy Place to post when you open. And to share pictures if you are able.

There are two elves that have not received a gift yet. Vinae and Carolyn. I will not open my gift until I am assured that they have a gift.

Next week I will post a topic for "Follow up" and there I will share my thoughts and feelings about this year's Swap and how things are going to change for next year.

Merry Christmas

I am agreeing with the other posts. I will wait until everyone has gotten their gift to open mine. I have waited this long so I can wait a little longer. Hopefully theirs will come soon.

MaryQ thank you for hosting the Secret Santa every year. You are great to do this for us.

Good morning everyone.

My Secret Santa is Linda Hertzing. She was wonderful. I got a teaser that was chocolates and a pincushion. Then my gift was lots of fabric. Fat quarters, some beautiful blue fabric, some 1930's repro fabric. Plus a pattern for Christmas table runner and a wonderful quilting mug.

Thanks so much Linda.

It is same for me, I agree with what has been said. I will wait for Vinae and Carolyn to receive their packages before opening mine! Sure hope they will receive soon!!

Love & hugs

Although the anticipation will hurt, I as well will wait. I hope my Secret Santa understands.

Do we need to send out packages to our sisters to make up for it?

I don't have a package to open as my Secret Santa, Lea, sent a gift certificate through my LQS and I used it to purchase some fabric that I wanted. But I am with our quilting sisters in spirit to hold off opening our gifts until all have a gift to open.

I'm with all my sister quilter's holding strong until everyone of us has our gift to open. I was going to say something more but I too will save that for another post. Anticipation is making wait, keeping me straight.

I just received a $20.00 gift certificate to Connecting threads from an anonymous Secret Santa Helper. I want to thank who ever stepped in and did this for me. That was so very generous! :D I will pick out some fun things to enjoy. Thanks so much again. Merry Christmas.

Almost 4 pm eastern time, No mail today. I did not receive a package for opening day. It is not OK, but It is over, and we move on. However it is OK for all of you to open your packages. I want you all to be cheerful over your packages, I have known many of you for over 9 years on this forum. Happy Holidays.

The anticipation is great, however, will not open my package until EVERYONE has rec'd their package.

Mary Z thanks for helping us, you are gem and such a blessed soul.

Will check back later on to see when we have a green light to open gifts.. Zac, my adorable fur baby keeps walking by my unopened gift, sniffs around and then walks away. HA

Hugs and blessings to all!

I'm so sorry for the glitch....I will wait for the others.

Please let me know if extra SS are needed to step in...I'd love to help.

Those that want too could all send a thing or two = fub

Mary thank you for all you ((((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))))))))
