IT'S TIME TO THINK ABOUT CHRISTMAS!

It’s June and the weather is warm, and no one wants to think about it now, but according to Julie at Dolls By Julsie and her Christmas Countdown clock there are only 196 days until Christmas. Now is the time to start those special holiday projects. You can pick up the patterns for these Elf Mittens by Button Stitch Designs at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.

Also at the shop are lots of new Christmas fabrics by Kaufman. These are just a few of the dazzling collection. They shout for attention. Be sure and check them out.

You won’t find this at the shop, but I did want to show you my latest block for the Around The World Quilting Bee Round 2. This one is for Courtney of the Woodland School. Hope she likes it.
.
You have to check this out. The Patchwork Possee has a tutorial on how to end bum crack one pant at a time. What a pleasant world this would be if more people did this.
.
Simply Modern Mom has a cute tutorial for a traveling placemat. Great for kids or grandkids.


Until next time,
Caroll

Oh my, already, well I guess it is just around the corner. No time like the present to get busy on the Christmas list.
Stop by and enter my giveaway. Who know's it could be one of your Christmas gifts if you win.
Good luck

Argh! I know it's time to start thinking about it, but I feel like I just finished it from last year! I can never get in the mood to work on Christmas projects until it's too late. Grrr...
