Time To Strut Your Stuff

Welcome to the first Christmas Through The Year link-up post!  This is where you get to shine.

There are two ways to do this.  If you have a blog, and your gift recipient doesn't read it, you will do a blog post with a picture of the gift you made.  Then you'll come back here, and add that blog post link to Mr. Linky.  That will automatically put you in the running for the give-away.

If you do not have a blog, or don't wish to post a pic of your gift, you'll email me with a picture of your gift.  I will post a pic here on my blog, and you will be entered in the give-away.  You MUST email me by January 31st to be in the give-away. 

The cut-off for this is midnight, January 31st. 

Please do visit the links, I've seen some absolutely wonderful gifts already, I promise you'll be inspired!  And don't forget to leave a comment for your fellow bloggers....encourage each other on being so organized! 

Let the fun begin!

Thanks so much for doing this, Allie -- it was such a great idea, and it's just what I needed to jump start my Christmas gift-making.

Looks like the old gray mare is even better than she used to be (smile)! So sweet of you to take all the time to do this Allie! I'm hoping to join up in the coming months!

Hello Allie, lovely bookmarks....I learnt a technique when machine quilting you hold the thread and use a very small stitch....stitch a few...then lengthen the stitch...you do the same when you come to the end....Hugs Lyn
