Secret Santa Stocking Swap!!!

Today was the day! We all got to open our stockings from our secret Santa's. Too much fun. Marion was my secret Santa and she spoiled me rotten with the goodies she sent! Thank you, Marion, you are such a dear! So, here is what I got...

I loved everything! I got a wonderful stocking and holder that have been hung up for many days taunting me. There were a few things that didn't even fit in the stocking. Let's see... I received two beautiful asian print FQs. Bobbin covers, scissor tip covers, a cute needle holder kit, needle threaders and some hand lotion (all needed and appreciated). A large Mocha Latte scented candle (oh, so yummy). "Chalk It Up" book and chalk board fabric (too cool). I also received a gorgeous little tote, a sweet note pad, wonderful Christmas Memories book, and some dark chocolate. Thank you again, Marion, it was all so very wonderful!!!!

Yesterday was our annual Christmas get together and dinner for the quilty ladies at my church. It was a lot of fun. I just love those ladies! While I was there, I finished the quilting on my wreath WH. I just need to trim, make and sew on the binding, but not sure when I'll get to that.

I'm also pleased to announce that I am completely finished shopping for the hubby and that includes taking the kids to shop for him as well. I even have all of his stuff wrapped. (Except for stocking stuffers, those are still hidden.) Now, if I can just finish wrapping the kids things. I have been wrapping presents every day for well over a week, maybe two. Does it ever end???? LOL! The house is decorated except outside lights, but the weather hasn't been great here and I haven't had the heart to ask hubby to do it. He won't let me climb on the ladder to do it myself.

I have to make some more goodies in the kitchen today for our pastors. I don't really need them until Christmas Eve, but if I do it now I don't have to think about it anymore.

I hope all of you are winding down, relaxing and enjoying the holiday season. And I hope that every gift you receive is filled with love and thoughtfulness!

I was thrilled I was your secret santa! I wished I could have done more, you deserve it. Sorry I taunted you least you got to open the box, I wasn't even 'allowed' to open my box from my secret santa. =)

I hope you and your family have a very merry Christmas!
