From Santa...

** edit: We've got a few questions about the quilt in the photo! It's a new kit with Martinique fabric you can look forward to on the Coming Soon page... :) **

I saw someone use this quote in her comment, and I made a mental note to use it.

"I'm in love...I'm in love and I dont care who knows it!"

Santa came by for a spell and gave us a little message for all of his faithful writers (you). His handwriting was a little wonky (I'm sure his hand is cramped from writing the names of all those people all around the world) but I was able to transcribe it.

Dearest Fans,

Mrs. Claus and I were so thrilled to see so many of you blogging your letters! I'm an old-fashioned fellow, so I'm glad my little online Jolly Jabber elves helped me sort through all of your blogs and comments! Ho ho ho, it brought me so much laughter and cheer to hear from you, especially those I hadn't heard from in quite a while! I knew you hadn't stopped believing!

Here are the lucky gals who will be getting their biggest Christmas wish from Fat Quarter Shop. If I list your name, you'd better e-mail Jocelyn right away to make sure I'll be shimmying down the right chimney with your gift! Wouldn't that be embarrassing...the missus wouldn't ever let me forget.

    My Santa gift arrived yesterday IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS and it is under the tree now! What FABULOUS timing!!! What is even more amazing is that the address was correct but the last name wasn't even close to I'm grateful the mail carrier still got it here for me. THANKS for this great gift!!!

    Khris said...

    Congratulations to all the lucky winners....I probably should have tried bribing Santa with cookies rather than dressing up for
    Hugs Khris

    Thank you so much for granting my wish! The timing was perfect too, it arrived Christmas Eve and went right under the tree as soon as I stopped running around the house yelling like the dad in the Christmas Story movie (I won! I won! It's a major prize!)
