NOW IS THE TIME TO THINK AHEAD

I finished my first project for Allie’s (of Allie-Oops Sweet Happy Life) Christmas Through The Year. Our goal is to finish one project a month and get a head start on our gift making.

This pattern, titled May Flowers, is a 6” by 22” wallhanging and is from Patch Abilities. It is perfect for a little nook in my sewing room, but I’m putting it in my “2011 Christmas Presents” basket. I hope it stays there. Be sure to visit Allie’s blog here and see the other ideas people are coming up with in order to get their Christmas gifts completed on time and avoid that last minute rush. You can participate too and join in the fun. By participating you will also be entered into her give-away. The nice part about Allie’s program is that you don’t have to commit to anything. You can enter this month and maybe not next, but enter again another month. Thanks, Allie, for getting us to think ahead.

DON’T FORGET:

HEART OF WINTER TOUR takes place Saturday, February 12. For more information, call the Attic Window Quilt Shop.

This is the last week for the SNOW DAYS OF JANUARY at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. You’ll want to take advantage of the sale and pick up your gift.

Oh now Caroll how are you going to give that away, lol! That is just gorgeous! SO bright and cheery - such perfect border fabric - and it looks like it was very fun to make. I don't know girl, I don't think that would make it into the Christmas basket! I love it!

Jeanne said...

Caroll, your first finish is so cute! Is it a Possibilities pattern? I have a year's worth (plus) to make.

Sooooo cute!!

Loralynn said...

Darling! Wasn't Allie's idea the best!!! This is going to help us out so much. I know what you mean about the gifts staying in the gift-away basket though...it's going to be tough!

Sarah Craig said...

That's adorable! But why not hang it up in your sewing nook until you get next month's Christmas 2011 gift done - that way you get to enjoy it for a while before you consign it to the basket.....

By the way - Whoop Whoop!! Nice finish!!!

Joanne Lendaro said...

Love this! I've got to get this figured out before the 31st....I hope to be a part of it!

Jamie in Louisiana said...

So cute! I make gifts all year too, but they seem to disappear before Christmas (birthdays, weddings,etc). Your project is darling!
