Annual Christmas Letter to Santa

Dear AppleJack Santa,

My apologies for being remiss in writing my annual Christmas letter to you.  Just as you, Mrs. Claus and the Elves have been busily working and preparing for deliveries on Christmas Eve, Thistle Manor has also been a beehive of activity.  I have limited my list to twelve items (for the twelve days of Christmas)

  1. The Feller Needlework Collection Volumes I and II
  2. Sajou Scissors
  3. Gift certificate to Nashville Needlework Market March 2013
  4. Jo Morton patterns and fabric
  5. Boxwood and Berries at Country Sampler in Spring Green, Wisconsin
  6. and since Scarlet Letter is also in Wisconsin and visit to Marsha
  7. A bird bath for Next Year
  8. David Austin Roses
  9. A new digital camera (including classes)
  10. Membership to Ladies Prim Society (Dyeing to Stitch)
  11. Amazon gift cards to refill my Kindle
  12. Running shoes adapted to keeping up with everything
I have been very good--that Elf on the Shelf--well, he needs to be called back to the North Pole and given a permanent assignment.  His observations and nightly reportings are beginning to add some anxiety to my life. 


  1. Mmmmmm, I love your list for Santa!! There are lots of things on it that I want too! Hope you get them all. :D

  2. If you have been a very good girl I am sure that Santa will bring all you desire.

  3. May Santa fulfill your every wish! Have a Merry Christmas!

  4. Wonderful list for Santa. I live in Wisconsin only 30 miles from Marsha but haven't been there for a while. Her open houses were wonderful. Country Stitches is wonderful also. Is in a quaint little town. Hope you get everything you want for Christmas. Merry Christmas
