Yes I did ~ I signed up for the Christmas Around The World Swap! And here are my answers, as best I can, to the 25 for each of the 25 days of the Christmas season!

Thanks so much for sharing Cary! I love both Charlie Brown Christmas and Rudolph :) Well, all the shows actually! My dad and I try to get together for Charlie Brown if we can each year. How interesting that you like yellow - I do too but it seems to be very unpopular with most of the other knitters I've encountered in swapland :) Hope you're enjoying the swap so far and thanks so much for filling out your questionnaire!

I am confused. I am your secret partner for this swap. Maybe Penny means another swap?
Great answers to the questionnaire. Able to get some good ideas from it.

Hi Annoymous (grin),

You are right, Peggy was writing about another swap I am in, but I
think she just read my questionnaire to get an idea for that swap ;)

Yesterday we hit a record high of 89 isn't feeling much
like Christmas weather here in mid-Michigan yet!
