Dear Santa

Dear Santa,

I'm sorry to be writing you this letter so late but this cold is kickin my butt. I have been drinking lots of water and orange juice like a good girl and hope that all the vitamin C will soon take care of it.

I'm writing to let you know that I really REALLY would like the the fat quarter bundle Blessings by Brannock and Patek from The Fat Quarter Shop. As you know this has been a very trying year for me. I have been very patient through the trials and the tribulations of Navy Medical and the many appointments that I have had. It was recently decided that the Navy is going to do a second nerve surgery on my arm. I think that this Fat Quarter bundle says it all! It would forever be a reminder to count my blessings and to remember the blessings that I have already received.

I would be really grateful if you would bring me the Blessings Fat Quarter Bundle as I think it would be just the ticket to a speedy (well as fast as it can heal) recovery. I could spread the bundle out where I could see the beautiful colors and feel the wonderful fabric. I think that this would be just the inspiration that I would need to get through the trials of therapy and even be therapy in itself! Hmm... imagine that Fabric Therapy. You know they were teaching some people over at the therapy clinic to sew when I was there earlier this year!

I know just what I would like to make with the fat quarters too!! This year I want to set a goal to make a Dear Jane Quilt or one that is similar in design and Blessings would be just perfect. I'm sure that my quilty friends will be the blessings that I need and promise to help me through therapy and cheer for me.


P.S. Mom if your reading this, this is a blog "Challange" and not something that you should secretly pass on to Keith. Although I wouldn't mind if you did.. Smiles
