Yea!  I finished the 34 scarves for my students, made hats for two former students, and a pillow for another.

It took me a long time to find an easy but good looking hat pattern, so I am actually on a hat crocheting kick right now!

Just glad those darn scarves are done ...now to wrap them all!

Amen, sister...I understand your situation, and I think you do beautiful work.  Anybody would be thrilled to receive any of those items!

This is my weekly posting but I also wanted to acknowledge my partner for this swap, Quaggy.

We are Craftster friends, and she is one of the kindest, most talented, and generous people I have ever met.

I can't take and post photos but please read on, because what I'm writing about is way above and beyond what she had to do as the requirements of this swap.

*We are Jewish but also celebrate Xmas (long story).  DH broke his shoulder, and money is tight.  Quaggy was aware of that.  Not only did she send the items for this Xmas swap, but she sent EIGHT FAMILY GIFTS for the eight nights of Hanukkah.  They were well thought out, useful, fun, and most of all, were such a great help to us right now.  The girls were very excited to open them every night.

*Quaggy sent me a box of what she called "extra supplies" that she couldn't use/didn't want anymore.  What I call them is hitting the craft supply lottery!  Cheesy  There are items for everyone in the family to enjoy, including some really nifty yarn ball fabric, the likes of which I have never seen here.  Modestly, she didn't take a photo of the supplies, since she said they were "extra".

*Quaggy and I have swapped several times before.  Because of her teriffic sewing talents, I often ask for items for other people (i.e.-DDs teachers, etc...) and she has again, always went above and beyond what I've asked for in a swap.  With this swap, again, she not only sent the items required by the swap, but she sent:  several mini owls (see margiej's gallery for an example), several green/red apple keyrings, and several quilted owl purses!  All for me to gift to people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*I didn't ask for anything for myself in this swap.  Only for DH, DS, and both my DDs.  Quaggy made it a point of including items for me as well.

Quaggy makes me cry with her compassion, kindness, and generosity.   Smiley Kiss  Thank you Quaggy!

I'm not into Dr. Who, but it's amazing to me how many items people can turn into a Tardis! Grin

I love seeing the wrapped gifts almost as much as I like seeing the opened ones!

FYI & BTW, thanks to this swap and the large 12 Days one, it already looks like Xmas morning under my Xmas tree!  Grin
3538  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: SECRET SANTA SWAP 2012 GALLERY!!!!! on: December 14, 2012 01:57:52 PM
I had a secret santa #1, but I also was a "replacement package person" for someone else.  So I received from a second secret santa, and that person was none other than SMLounsbury!

I am unable to take or post photos, I have asked SMLounsbury to do so, and I hope she does.  The package is quite nifty!

Here goes:

-A package of 'traffic stickers' that I think I'm going to let my students at school have a go at on a day when it's too rainy to go outside!

-A package of three "fancy" Kleenex travel tissues...you can never have enough!  Cheesy

-A skein of 'merino handspun yarn' in light and dark green!  WHOO-HOOO!

-A large, lined, cupcake-themed tote which will come in very handy.  We just found out that one of our DDs needs to use a nebulizer and I just gave her one of my fav cupcake totes last night to keep all the equipment in.  Perfect timing!

Thank you so much for the package!  It's great!

Thanks for posting the photos, Koreena!

And I thought the journal cover was removable, but I wasn't sure...thanks for clearning that up!  Wink

You might want to open it texscrapper...there's some extra LSU fabric in there that you could use to make gifts, if you wanted.

Compliments of Quaggy!
