A Christmas Surprise From Santa!!!!!

Not all of Santa's surprises come via the chimney!
Not at all!  
Sometimes they are brought by wonderful brown trucks (UPS)!
And sometimes they come right when they are needed most!!!

My entire morning was spent on the phone trying to take care of all the fraudulent charges on our credit card. Sigh. Not exactly on my to-do list, but, obviously, it was top priority. 

I had just hung up with the very last call, when I looked out my window in time to see the UPS man running (literally) to my door. Wracking my brain for what had been ordered, I opened the door and there on the welcome mat was a most welcome sight .... 

For me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(especially ones that I can turn into quilts and other handmade items!)

Anyhoo, you can imagine that I wanted to cry when I opened the box from FatQuarterShop and saw this HUMONGOUS stack of 
fabric (click on L' Amour to see how stinkin' cute this fabric is...and how much they sent to me - wow!

The card said,

"Have fun!! You have been a good girl."  

So... while I was busy taking care of someone who was naughty and not nice with our credit card, Santa's surprise had been on its merry way to moi! I had no clue (duh, which makes it a surprise! LOL)!

Remember how I told you about the Santa letter giveaway at JollyJabber??? Well, this is where my fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuun surprise of love came from!!! Now, next time I share about some fabulous giveaway, be sure you take heed and let your fingers click on over to the blog I tell you about, 'cuz you just never know.... (And I wasn't even listed in her winners, so you reeeeeaaaally just never know!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

THANK YOU, JOLLY JABBER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Merry Christmas!!!

Jocelynilla said...

Awww! Thanks for sharing...although I must say this is not a gift Santa had FQS send either. You've got some other secret Santa activity going on... ;)

Oooh, you are a special girl! Not like the naughty person who did their Christmas shopping with your $$. I hope that is all sorted out now and you are happily stitching away with your suh-weeeet pile of prettiness!
