Well, let's see... In the past, I've received needlecases, decorated towels, cute memo pad holders (I carry one in my purse so I always have paper), potholders, tissue packet holders, ornaments, a multi-pocket organizer, keychains, jewelry, a thread catcher, coasters, pin cushions, to name a few. It can be anything that you like to make, and the packages can all contain something different if you don't want to make 12 of the same thing. We all love getting and opening those packages of hand-made goodies no matter what it is. I hope you do join us.
Just keeping us in the list so you can find us. Quilter Chris
This has been a great swap. It's always a mystery at the wide assortment of gifts. In addition to the items already listed, which are wonderful, I have also received candles; greeting cards,travel supplies, small WH, mug rug, original photography cards, casserole carrier, and stuffed fabric balls. Lots of ideas, and each appreciated. What little items do you like to make? I open one each day, so can enjoy it for the full time.
Well I'm glad you'll listed that stuff I have been obsessing over this whole thing. Now I have a better concept in my head.
Just keeping the thread up there. Quilter Chris
Okay, all you fence-sitters. It's time to come down from there and join us in the 12 Days of Christmas Swap. If, for some reason, you've sent a PM to Quilter Chris to join and haven't heard back, then please send a PM to me. QC has been having trouble getting some pm's while all the others have been getting through just fine. (I get the feeling that when they "fixed" the board a couple of years ago, they created more problems than they fixed.) Anyway, we'd love to have more of you join us in the fun. November 1st is coming!
Thanks for the list of ideas. Think I came up with one so will join. Sending PM.

Good morning 12 days ladies and welcome to Coffee/Tea or me (Shirley) we are up to 19 persons so far. Hope you are working hard on your gifts LOL Quilter Chris (Chris Holub)
Okay, I've added CoffeeTeaorMe to our list and we're at 19. Still time to join us. Sign-ups will close on Thursday, Nov. 1st. After that, QC will put together a PM group and send everyone her mailing info. In the meantime, let's all get our 12 gifts started.
Just moving us up the list. QC
I finally decided to join the group, since it was so much fun last time. Got some ideas, but nothing definite yet. Yes, holidays are approaching.
I've got 8 gifts almost done. The other 4 may or may not be the same.
Welcome aboard Barb - gemsq. We love having you join us. Ladies we are now at 20. We are really getting there. Quilter Chris. Keep working on those projects LOL.
Just finished my 12 gifts They turned out really cute if I do say so, think I will make a few more for some other special people. It's amazing what you can get done when your computerless! Glad to be back online, missed everyone.
Thanks for the ideas, I have come up with an idea I hope you will like.

Good morning ladies. Just moving us on up to catch any last minute people. Hope your projects are moving right along. Quilter Chris
Tomorrow is the deadline for sign-ups. If any of you have been considering this, please sign up today or tomorrow. We'll be having a lot of fun!
Come on ladies where is your sense of adventure. You will find that it is really fun to do this one. Quilter Chris -- Chris Holub
Hi, there. Today is the final official day for sign-ups. Please send a PM to QuilterChris with the info requested in the very first post of this thread and join in the fun!
I have 5 sets done. I've shown them to some ppl, who really liked it. I hope you all like it too.
Ten done, two to go...
I know what I'm doing and have the pattern ready to go. Now I just need to cut and sew (ha ha). Luckily, I don't have to mail them, just take them to Chris's house with me the day we do the swap. Speaking of Chris, she should be setting up a PM group mailing soon with all of her mailing info for you all. In the meantime, back to work for me!
Well I haven't started anything yet but, the wheels are in motion. I've been on the road for a week down south. Good to be home and close to my machine. My hands hurt from sewing in the car. Talk at you soon girls have a great day.
Ok I got 6 down, 6 to go. I'm pooped though I've been sewing all day. I'm in so many swaps I had to take notes. I think I'm still ahead of the game though. I do need an address to send though? I'm not sure if it's my computer or the message board, it's been acting weird. If you can help QC I'd appreciate it.
With this project being officially closed, I have sent a PM to each of you with all the pertinent information and dates so we can finish and enjoy. If I missed something or the dates are wrong Linda will let me know and I will correct with a new PM. Remember once the box is being mailed to me you must PM me with the confirmation number so I can keep track of what I have and what I am still waiting for. Thanks Quilter Chris
Since QuilterChris has sent the PM to everyone involved, we will no longer be checking this thread. If you have any questions or comments, please use the PM group. We'll just let this thread fall back to page 10 (oblivion). Thanks to all who are joining us for this year's swap.
done and hope to mail this week.
Ok my fingers are killing me. Finished my last gift tonight. I'll have them in the mail tomorrow. I'm excited to get this party started.
I mailed yesterday; have a conf #, do you need it. The nice man said it should be there Monday
I checked the conf code and it says delivery on Sat Nov 17th
I reviewed this again, and it sounds like these will all be special. This is my current focus project; won't be long til its in the mail. Hope you like them. Happy Thanksgiving too.
