Your Dear Santa Letters!

"'Code word is: 'Santa's got a brand new bag.'"
I have to start these posts with Elf quotes. Have to.

We've been having a blast reading all of your letters to Santa! They're in all languages, and they use all sorts of persuasive tactics. From flattery & rhyming couplets...to bribery, wheeling 'n dealing, the occasional threat. Someone "elfed" herself (go Jeanneke!)...and someone got "modus vivendi" in their poem (Kleiosbelly, your vocabulary rocks). But all in good fun! :)

So here is the full list of everyone who blogged their letter to Santa!
Up next, the list of comments to Santa -- then, of course, the lucky "good girls" who'll get their wish!

My lucky nuber is 14 - so since that's my number on Santa's list, hopefully he'll send some treats to me!

I've had fun reading all the other lists. But I have a few more things I NEED now :)

lisa said...

I am so glad you made that list. I posted a comment on the 14th that isn't there like it should be, so I re-posted it today. Maybe that was the computers way of helping me? Or more likely just an odd fluke.

Thearica said...

Kathie said...

Dear Santa: I know it has been many, many years since I wrote you a letter and I almost forgot how but it is coming back to me. I have been very, very good this year. The Fat Quarter Shop has so many wonderful things. They have a beautiful collection called Blush Charm Pack - Basic Grey that is just beautiful. I don't think it is available yet so I will go with my second choice which is the "More Pink & Chocolate Quilt Kit".

I promise to be good in 2010. If you need any other ideas on what to bring me I have a whole list of fabric and patterns you can pick from.

Kim said...

Looks like I'll be busy this weekend reading Santa lists! Thanks for posting all of them--I've had fun reading so far!

Oooops, I couldn't decide what to talk about with Santa and missed him before take-off!! :(

I am a reader of the LA Quilter blog and found my way here to your store and blog. I so enjoy my visits. My problem is trying to decide what I would like to order. :) I will take care of that soon.

My wishes to all of you at the Fat Quarter Shop, to have a very Merry Christmas! Also, I would like to leave you with a compliment. I love how you detail your patterns. It will be so helpful when I order, to know what the fabric needs are, in detail. Good job!!

Oh NO.. I feel so left out....are only "good GIRLS" in to win? I have been a good BOY..well mostly anyway....

I Purr-Furr to Craft said...

I have set aside my night to visit all these blogs, I think my list of blogs to follow is going to get much larger, Wishing all of you a Very Merry Christmas and a Safe and Happy New year.

CieAngel said...

Merry Christmas to all of you and thank you for the change to win. It was really fun writing the letter to Santa.
Huggs,

Dear Santa, I know I am writing late but could not resist.This year has been a hectic one. My husband lost his job in Jan. and is still looking. My youngest daughter was in a terrible car accident and moved home during her medical treatment and can not work yet. Though we have little we took in a homeless young man and my hubby taught him how to drive. He is also unemployed.So with all this I have not been able to buy fabric for any projects.I would love to have some modas aster manor linen portico and matching fabrics to do some projects or blue and pink florals to do Jenny of elephantz "blue roses" project this coming year. God Bless

Oh man! I joined in the fun last week, and obviously forgot to link my letter to your blog. Rats! Oh well... this happens a lot in my busy life!! lol

My Dearest Santa...
How I've missed you and Clausette (hug the Dear for me, please, and tell her I faithfully wear the red velvet apron she made me; the glistening snow balls dangling from the hem are a kick)!

No need for sugarplums to dance in my head when I have magical memories of my last visit. Ahhhh...the snow, the chorus of elves singing all my Christmas favorites, the village that always twinkles like a night packed with stars... I'll have you send your sleigh again, soon; I promise.

I still thrive on baking batches and batches of cinnamon rolls for you all; it makes me laugh remembering how the stacks of them tottered as you whisked up the chimney!!!

Awakening on Christmas morning is still as fun as ever! You always know what I want! OK, that was a joke, since I send you a letter every year with my list! Christmas humor, you know!!! HO HO HO!

Anyhoo, Santa Dear, you know how much practice I need quilting (yes, still having a bit of trouble cutting off points). That means... PLEASE SEND ME FABRICS! Since this letter is very, very late, I have some elves who can help this year, over at FatQuarters.com. I am going to go hightech on you now, so don't roll over (it's painful watching you try to get up, ya know), just order from them and they'll ship them to you, so that you can drop them by on Christmas Eve when you pick up the hot, gooey cinnamon rolls....

MY LIST: :)..... http://anencourager.blogspot.com/
