Well, as no-one seems to object to me sorting this out would you all pm me with the following info, please? I shall do my best to pass on the info needed in the week of Nov. 22-28, to give people time to catch last posts for foreign destinations, so I will close the list at midnight (ish) on November the 21st

1. Is there anything that you're allergic to?
2. Is there anything that you would love to receive?
3. Is there anything that you really don't want (ie: soapmakers really don't want soap...)
4. What is your favourite colour?
5. Do you have any pets? (mainly to stop matching cat lovers with people allergic to cats, or to give the sender another idea of what they could send).
6. Are you a boy or a girl?
7. What country/ies are you prepared to post to?

Please include your COUNTRY in your address as I'm hopeless at geography!

PS to Mods, please can you make this a 'sticky' till 21st November? Thanks

Just wondering how this works - do you try to match people up with the sort of things they like and dislike?

Can we not know earlier because it doesn't give us a lot of time to find suitable gifts if I suddenly find I get teamed with someone who wants something pink and fluffy. :pale:

Where-ever I can I'll pick people who like stuff I know you can make/find etc & also I'll start sending you the names of your 'giftee' from the begining of Nov for those already 'signed up' but I want to try to leave it open for as long as possible for as many people as possible to be included.

Oh B******S!!! I never replied with my info (okay so I have been in and out of hospital for the last month with Daisy - but still)
:( :(

Hope all those who actually remembered have enjoyed it ( I really did the last time I took part, it was well up there with my favourite presents for that year and lovely to make something for somebody who would actually appreciate it - unlike some family members :lol: )

I suppose I could look at it that I've got a whole twelve months to organise my gift for next Christmas..............................well maybe not :lol: :lol: :lol:

My gift has arived, and i'm resisting opening it til christmas day!

the one i'm sending will be late though, it'll be obvious to the receivee who sent it...There's no festive feeling here at all, and i didn't even realise it was December until a couple of weeks ago...

Sorry.
