  17. My mother is Dutch, so we grew up with Sinterklaas. This was much better according to my brother and me because we got our presents delivered on 5 December. My girls have also been signed up for Sinterklaas ro come and deliver. The poor man has to make a special trip to the UK for them but he doesn't mind because they always sing songs for him and leave a carrot in their shoes for his horse.

  20. Well I just love old St. Nick. But I tell ya, when I was little, there were some questionable Santas at the mall that I had pictures taken with. One time he looked drunk with huge red undereye bags. That was not a great picture to stick in the old photo album.

    ReplyDelete
  21. One Christmas I was playing Santa late at night while my two little girls were sleeping. While putting gifts under the tree I moved the wrong way and my back went out! I had to spend the night sleeping under the tree!

  27. Years ago I made a Santa suit. This past Halloween a friend's son wore it to his part-time job at a local grocery store on a day when employees were to dress in costume. His name is Nick, so when he put his name badge on the suit it was perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Our Ben was 2 1/2 the first time we tried to take his picture with Santa. We have some lovely photos of him screaming in Santa's lap ;>) That Christmas Eve the kids set out cookies and milk for Santa. When Ben got up Christmas morning he was VERY UPSET, to the point of tears, to discover that Santa had actually EATEN those cookies! Ben was in the habit at that time of telling anyone who displeased him "No presents for you. You're on the naughty list." Santa promptly went on the naughty list! Thanks for chance to win these cute fabrics! (EMAIL: marshudson at comcast dot net)

    ReplyDelete
  72. My favorite Santa picture is of my younger daughter at 6 months old happily sitting on Santa's lap laughing at her older sister who was screaming and crying off-camera. Now, they don't care so much for pictures with him, but leave out cookies and milk each year.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Ho Ho Ho! I love Santa! Especially the big ceramic Santa that my mother made for me many years ago. He always peeks out from behind our tree in the living room. His black boots and fat green glove covered hands are my favorite parts of him! Santa also brings lovely things like those wonderful pre-cuts you are giving away!

  85. At 50+, I will confess I love everything about Santa and he always makes me smile. But, the best part is to see a small child fall in love with Santa and enjoy this fun tradition.

    ReplyDelete
  88. I loved playing Santa last year, leaving a small present every day during December under the tree for my 2 years old daughter. The happiness on her face while opening the little bag to find out what Santa has left for her was priceless.
    I do want her to believe in Santa for as long as possible, Christmas is a magic time that I love to live year after year. Hopefully she will too.

    ReplyDelete
  89. It makes me nervous every year when everyone starts counting down the days til Santa arrives... I'm never ready.

    ReplyDelete
  91. If Santa would like to drop by early with these new charm packs, I'll have time to make some mug rugs to leave his milk and cookies on this Christmas ;o)

    ReplyDelete
  92. Love love love these prints!!! I have a story about Santa. Each year our church would have a dance/party on Chirstmas Eve and at the end Santa would make an appearance. When I was a young teenager, my friends and I decided to go out to my (parents') car and sit for awhile. When we got outside the car was idling (odd!) and upon opening the doors, we found "Santa" inside staying warm while waiting for his debut! It was pretty funny. Thanks for the chance to win these adorable fabrics. This is the best time to start some Christmas projects.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  101. So cute! One of the many wonderful things about grandkids is experiencing the excitement of Santa all over again.

  108. What a nice giveaway! I love Santa, always have, and have many happy memories of Santa both as a child and as a parent.

  112. When I walk my dog at the lake in the mornings there is a man who looks like Santa. I'm worried that he's checking up on me year round to make sure I'm behaving.

    ReplyDelete
  113. My oldest is three now, and I think in three years we've never had an easy time taking the kids to Santa! :}

    ReplyDelete
  114. Santa - I think my dad dressed up as my small town's Santa one year. I don't remember ever believing in Santa. Every year I would ask Mom if Santa was real, and her standard answer was, "Santa Claus is the spirit of Christmas in all of us."

    ReplyDelete
  115. What's not to love about Santa? He is always jolly and kind. He gives you presents that you really really want. You can sit in his lap and feel all comfy because he's fluffy and warm. You can touch his beard and know that he is real. Santa loves children. Santa is good.

    ReplyDelete
  116. My favorite thing to do at Christmastime is to sit down with my little girls and write letters to Santa .

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  123. Santa will not be here for a while, maybe if I win I will have lots of time before Christmas to make something!!

    ReplyDelete
  124. When was a kid, Santa would come during the night and leave the presents under the tree (unwrapped). We all knew whose present each would be somehow. We had one or two presents each. Guess we went to sleep early and hard as my parents were Santa and left the presents under the tree when they went to bed (by 9pm). Always, the milk and cookies we left were eaten. Sweet memories that can be wrapped in those charms...

    ReplyDelete

  127. I love watching my daughter sit on santas lap & talk so seriously and in depth with a man who is a complete stranger but yet to her he is the wonder of Christmas.

    ReplyDelete
  128. Santa always brought me new pyjamas every Christmas :)

    ReplyDelete
  129. Santa does not come to our house anymore since our kids are grown. Can't wait for grandkids to come up for Christmas this year. Santa will definitely make an appearance for that.

    ReplyDelete
  130. Thanks for the giveaway.

    Santa can come at anytime of the year, not just Xmas

    ReplyDelete
  134. Santa is a jolly old fellow.

    ReplyDelete
  135. When we were little kids, my grandma would stay with us at Christmas time. We would all go to bed early and grandma would come running up the stairs saying she just saw Santa leave and we should come downstairs and look for ourselves. This went on for many years because there were 15 years between the oldest and youngest children in my family. We loved playing the game as we got older and the youngest ones didn't know about Santa yet. paweis at yahoo dot com

    ReplyDelete
  136. I keep a wooden Santa placque that reads "This house believes in Santa" up on the wall in our den year round. Love the beautiful fabrics - thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  137. Through the years, Santa's been 'berry, berry good to me'. ;-)
    Merry Early Christmas, and thanks for the giveaway. Fun fabrics for the funnest time of year.

    ReplyDelete
  138. It's just a big fat lie. j.k. Thanks Corrie. Both are cute lines.

    ReplyDelete
  139. The best memory of Santa was the year we had sleigh tracks on the front lawn (because we didn't,t have a chimney, we had to leave the front door open for him).

    ReplyDelete
  140. A couple of years ago I handstitched a Santa wall hanging and his beard is the most amazing feature because I stitched French Knots tightly together with Pearl Cotton! Everyone compliments me when it is on display for the season!

    ReplyDelete
  141. Thanks for the chance, these are both great lines!

    ReplyDelete
  142. Oh, my goodness! I'm so glad it was BOTH charm packs. I was looking at them both wondering how I would choose between the two if I won. :) I know some parents feel like telling their kids there is a Santa is like lying to them, but I remember the belief in magical things I had as a kid and how fun it was. I don't want to deny my children that. They handle it quite well when they figure out it's us. They're even more grateful when they look back on what "Santa" gave them.

    ReplyDelete
  143. Santas are so much fun. I love it when there are all different sizes of santas. I love the look of those cute santas.

    ReplyDelete
  144. When I was a child, we never left out cookies (or anything else) for Santa :(

    ReplyDelete
  145. Growing up, Santa always left a stocking filled with fruit, candy and small toys. I still remember my stocking was white with a tree and a gold star. Thanks for bringing back that memory of good times.

    ReplyDelete
  146. There's a story my mom tells about "one of you kids" (she never remembers the "who" in a story - failing memory). Anyway, we apparently called Santa "Noah" when we were growing up because in all of our bible storybooks Noah had a long white beard. I guess he would have - he was over 100, right? So that's my story. No Santa, only Noah. Good thing it never rains at Christmas in Ohio :)

    ReplyDelete
  147. All of the fabric lines are wonderful...it makes you want to get started early on holiday items...thanks for the uplifting post...I love it!
    Carol

    ReplyDelete
  148. I would love some Santa fabric...I wonder if he's busy making toys this time of year?! Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  149. I got in big trouble when I was a kid for hiding under the couch to prove Santa wasn't real. Problem was it was the 70's when furniture didn't have a skirt around the bottom, so they could clearly see me lol. Hadn't fully thought that through...

    ReplyDelete
  150. The Santa Spirit lives in the Hearts of all who believe in him.....he creates Magic, Wishes & Dreams! "Make-believe" is FUN!
