  46. I’m a sucker for mittens (maybe being a Minn transplant here in TX – moi???) and I instantly fell for your mittens on a line. I also like Counting with Santa – but the mittens win hands down (oops, I didn’t mean to sound corny like that but then it’s true!).

  47. Lost Mittens is such a fun block! I can’t wait to make it–maybe in blue and yellow because I’m originally from the Mitten State! Your Peppermint Stripes Christmas pattern would be grand to do also!

  48. Santa’s Pockets is my favorite Christmas pattern.
    Love the lost mittens. It just needs a few kittens. Or perhaps lots of forest animals lurking – a la Jan Brett.

  49. Darling block and love it made as a tablerunner. Love your Christmas Sampler pattern. Congratulations and Thank you for a great giveaway!
