Our movie this month is Miracle On 34th Street. Another annual favorite of mine. Edmund Gwenn is so perfectly cast as Santa, and who doesn't love Natalie Wood in this? Adorable.
Our give-away gift this month comes from the gorgeous Lyn, from Blue Bird Quilts. She has made the most beautiful table topper, I'm so sad that I can't enter the give-away!
Isn't that so gorgeous? Lyn also has a free BOM going on, Retro Nine Patch - on my sidebar - really lovely!
So, what to make this month? Well, I do have some tutes for you! First up is Talin, at Talin's Corner - a gorgeous wallet - anyone could use one of these!
Next, from Teresa at All Things Vintage - a lovely makeup bag, that looks so much easier than the one I just made! This is another must make for me.
From A Spoonful Of Sugar, the most adorable little gift bag - cute cute cute! Thanks Carmen for that link!
Another that Carmen sent, Cluck Cluck Sew has free quilting tutorials!
From Craft Snob, an adorable t-shirt headband, darling for little OR big girls!
From Joan at Ouvrages d'une Acadienne, the most gorgeous mitten mat tabletopper - Joan, I'm so sorry I forgot to email you about asking to use your pic - folks, go see this, it's too sweet! My mom will love this.
And last but certainly not least, if you need to make things for children and babies or you want to make a lovely purse, Made By Rae has all KINDS of tutorials on her sidebar!
So, will that be enough to keep you going for a few days? If you have found a tutorial you'd like to see here, feel free to email me with it - the more the merrier!
Today is also Tickled Pink Tuesday - I was going to do a seperate post for that, but honestly, 3 in one day? I don't think so. So - what's tickling me today -
IT'S THE FIRST OF MARCH!!!!!!!
This is my favorite month for several reasons - it may still be officially winter, but to me it means spring. The trees may still be bare, but there will be buds by the end of the month. The earth is waking up from her long slumber...she may yet pull up her winter blanket and we'll see more snow, but we'll also see rain and the beginnings of the greening. This is the month of hope for me....longer days. Warmer breezes. Not having to wear so many layers. There is one more reason, but I won't tell you until the last day!
Now get your cup of favorite beverage, browse some links, and gather your supplies - make sure to check your list for who you're making for! Happy sewing!
