Here is the gift received by graceandham.
"Thanks again to my S.S. for the perfect little laces and beautiful monogrammed initial, which doesn't show so well in the picture. Isn't it darling?"
A great present Betsy
Sue you did a wonderful job organizing this as always!
Has everyone received their SS gifts now?
Yes - all accounted for now.
Yes thanks Sue for your super planning for us all with the SS
Great thanks to you, spendlove for your perfect organization, it is a great success
Congratulations to all the SS all the gifts are wonderful
Yes, they are.
Woo Hoo!!! I should say double thanks to my Secret Santa Sister...the original gift she sent, I never received...although the post office confirmed it was delivered...so what did my Secret Santa do....well she made another gift and sent it to me and I received it yesterday....I am so grateful that she took the time and effort to make me a second gift and then expense the postage again...just so I would have her gift...I can't thank you enough...and I LOVE the hand towel you made for me. It is the perfect design and color to match my bathroom...So I say double thanks to you my dear!
So pretty - love the colors!!!!
Ah, what a nice Secret Santa Cutie. I love it! Sorry to both of you for all the trouble and the wait.
Phew! Many thanks to SS for going the extra mile!
Very pretty, well done SS
Aren't Cuties just the best? So kind and caring.
Bless you SS
Beautiful design! I'd hate to use it!
Yes, thank you to one and all who participated in the Secret Sister Santa swap. It was lots of fun. Sue thankyou for all of your efforts to organize and monitor the progress of the swap. Happy New Year everyone!
I want to say Thank You to those who participated for the first time this year . I hope you enjoyed it and it breathes some new life into the exchange so we aren't giving/getting to the same people each year,
it was my first time to participate and I really enjoyed it. it think giving the gift and waiting for their reaction was more exciting than getting the gift. 😊 Both were fun though!
I agree with you. This first timer loved observing the different gifts and the reactions to them. Thank you Sue for organizing it and to everyone who participated.
Unless I miscounted, I counted 29 gifts. There should be 2 more!
I counted 29 also. Since dragonfly's gift is MIA there should be one more that hasn't been shown yet.
graceandham hasn't posted a picture yet.
Thank you Sue for organizing this. It is not a small task and we appreciate it.
To all you very talented SS you did a wonderful job. I am always amazed at the quality and ingenuity.
Well, I think some kind of record has been made! All but one gift has safely arrived and has been reported in here for all to share. Poor dragonflyer's gift is still wandering in the US postal system.
Well done everyone!
Sue, thanks again for expediting this year's exchange. And thanks for insisting we keep to the 1 gift rule. No competition or hurt feelings that way. Happy New Year to everyone.
A couple of gifts pushed the rule to the absolute limit though!
Sue you do such a wonderful job of making this possible for all of us. Thank you! But one not only pushed the limit but went beyond. That makes it hard for those that stick to the rules because it makes us feel that perhaps we should have done more.
Sorry I haven't posted before this I have been quite ill since Christmas Night.
I got the perfect gift from my SS and I have told my "Family" it's mine all mine and if you touch I'll sew your fingers together. Thank you SS.
Beautiful coaster. I just love glittery and sparkly things!
What makes it sparkle, I love it.
Sew sparkly, great coaster SS!
It is the type of fabric she used it is by Michael Miller and the designs were a combination from Kreative Kiwi and Cute..
Are all the gifts accounted for now? Hugs. Nan
One is still wandering in the US postal system!
Marian hope your feeling better, Love your coaster, :)
I love my gift. It's my favorite color. Thanks Secret Santa Sister. It's one project I have not yet learned to do.
Love it...great and useful too!
Hi Nan, as you had asked about a new thread, once we all received our gifts, I noticed that you had not posted yours. I was curious to see what you had received. It sure is a pretty font and useful item. Lovely card too, great job SS.
Its hard to decide what the person you give gift to is making, nice SS found one your not doing. Very nice!
A lovely gift, You should never loose your keys with this gift, Well done :)
Very usefull !
Sue, you may need to update your post and let Nan/ mrskiki know she can post NOW !- lol
I want to thank my ss for my heart bag. I going to use it for lip gloss to hang on my purse.
How delightful and enjoy using your great gift
Splendid...would be great for lots of small trinkets....
Great gift Love it :)
Cute ! And it seems it is getting a practical use, never have to look for you lip gloss again :-)
Beautiful fabric and very useful gift.
Sorry for the delay in posting. Technical difficulties. Thank you, thank you SS. I received this beautiful Christmas Book. It is such a lovely idea. I have already started recording this years events. I've included the poem that came with it.
A great gift
so nice great job SS
Lovely...I have not seen the Christmas Book Poem before...
What a great idea and special gift, nice SS
Clever gift, Very thoughtful. Like a diary only just for Christmas ,Well done Love it ")
Very nice gift !
I love this!!
What a lovely idea. I keep a book with a list of the gifts we have given to family and close friends so as not to repeat and this book would be perfect for that as well. Love the poem.
It has been so busy at my house, with lots of company or I would have posted sooner. My Secret Sister sent me a beautiful candle cover (and my daughter gave me a wonderful candle for Christmas - perfect fit!). I also appreciated the wonderful Christmas card. Here is a picture of them at the edge of our Christmas Village that my DH loves to set up each year. Thank you Secret Sister - the candle cover is perfect!! Hugs, Laura
Sorry for the sideways!!!
I love the lighthouse. Such a cute gift.
A pretty gift
Very nice candle holder, great gift SS!
Wow stunning . Love candle covers .Well done SS :)
Very pretty candle cover. I love both candle covers and lighthouses.
I counted 24 gifts/photos posted. Exactly how many Cuties participated this year, Sue?
There are 31 including quite a few who have never been involved before.
Hopefully all get displayed. Love seeing how creative we all can be :)
I hope all gifts arrived so far ?
Thank you to my SS who has made me this great pincushion and added pins too. Now what my SS didn't know is that I didn't have a pincushion I relied on a plastic tub. The great design is from UT which is about my fav site. So SS thanks again and hope that you have enjoyed your gift too
Love the pincushion...and how thoughtful to include pins too!
Beautiful design and work.
I have liked this design too, sure looks nice on pincushion and extra pins! Great SS!
Pretty design and color

Many thanks to my SS for the beautiful towel made like a doll dress, with perfect little bow ties at the "waist". The fabric and thread colors were perfect and my initial is in a beautiful font on the towel itself. It is so sweet. My son is going to help me upload a picture of it next visit, Such a special gift and from a stranger (okay, maybe not - who knows?).
From this momma, tell your son I said he needs to visit his momma more often!- lol- we're waiting for your picture!

It was beautifully wrapped and tied with grosgrain ribbon I can use on a future project. Thank you SS so much for making this especially for me!
Very nice towel..and cute little Santa's Helper!
Love the hen and eggs, sew cute, nice idea SS
Yes it is Kim and thank you, he was kinda cross,needing a nap.

Great present and Gus opening it is a added bonus to a beautiful picture
Nice design and towel. Pretty little helper
Great gift. Cute little one there too. Well done to both :)
Great and very practical !
Beautiful. Love that type of towels you will be hooked and have to make all your towels in that or similar style.
I received a beautifully sewn apron. It had two different fabrics with my initial embroidered on one pocket and delicate butterflies on the other side. Thank you Secret Sis! It is lovely. Sorry I didn't have a model to show it off better. I tried a selfie in the mirror and that was a disaster! LOL Thanks again and Merry Christmas to all.
Beautiful your SS did a great job

Wow, thank you so much Secret Santa. What a beautiful quilted doily you made for me in my favorite colors. I just love it and you are so talented. I am posting a picture of both the front and reverse side for all to see.
Merry Christmas to you!
Such a lovely quilted doily! Great job SS...
Sew Nice, enjoy. Very pretty SS
Great job SS
Very clever indeed, Lovely doily . Well done ")
Very special, the your ss used 2 different types of threads (top and reverse side )?
Very pretty and reversible to boot!
O.K. Let me start over, Put in wrong place. Can't get picture up right. I received a apron from my SS or Kay, as she put her name on pkg. The apron has chick-a-dees, on it. I love my apron and will be using it. Thanks again Sandy
Great apron love the design
Very pretty. Love the colors used
really nice I know you will get a lot of use with this
Nice apron pretty color
This is very pretty, The design stands out wonderfully on the black .Great gift indeed :)
Very nice !
Very nice. Love the design.
I have opened my gift this morning, , My SS has made for me a case for glasses, with my letter C. It is so well made and also useful. Thank you very much to my Secret Sister.
A very nice gift and as you said very useful!
Beautiful glasses case....such an elegant font...
So very classy looking. Great job
Very Elegant indeed. Lovely gift :)
Very usefull !
Beautiful job. Mine never turn out that nice.
I cheated and squished my package so I knew it was a purse. Well I was right and it is a perfect color to go with my winter coat. My SS even included a bright shiny penny. Thank you Secret Santa, it's perfect.
PS, Thank you SS Janet. I recognized the address,
Very nice purse, 2 zippers.
So handy. And cute too
Very practical . Its tradition to always include penny or some money "as in my case a 5cent coin" Love it ")
Practical ! The penny, is it to bring “ good luck” so you never lose the purse ?
Very nice and handy as well. I think the idea of never giving someone that type of gift (a purse, wallet etc) without putting in a coin is so it will never be empty.
This is such a beautiful gift! Thank you so much to my SS. It fits perfect with my favorite chair as I sit here and watch the kids searching for their presents (they left a note for St. Nickolas to hide if them if they were good kids this year). The butterfly is beautiful!! To all the wonderful Cuties we have here, I Wish all a very Merry Christmas and Wonderful Holiday. ***HUGS***
very, very nice. The butterfly on the first picture.. is that handmade too ?
Beautiful Butterfly cushion and Merry Christmas too you!
Beautiful butterfly cushion and very delicate indeed!
Zoefzoef, I am really not sure, It is very pretty though and the colors match the one's on the pillow so it may well be.
Oh so beautiful Lovely and very dainty. Well done
Georgeous butterfly. A lovely gift.

I'm a little confused. I have been watching Santa on the NORAD santa tracker and I see him merrily zipping along at the speed of light but he never lands the sleigh so how does he manage to deliver the gifts? Can someone explain this for me?
When you watch Santa driving the sleigh on NORAD you can see trailing behind him thousands of little star 🌟⭐️ like sprinkles and these are the gifts being delivered to everybody all over the world. Love Chris
He is too quick to see!
It's called SM= Santa Magic
I like the way you ladies explain it, Thank you so much. I hope one of those little twinkles was sent to you to make your Christmas merry.
