May Christmas Through The Year
Well, I'm going to kick off the month [a bit late] without a picture of our give-away gift yet, simply because I FORGOT [see previous post here] it was May. Um, yes. Pathetic.
This is month five. If you've been following along from the start, you should have four gifts ready for Christmas. If you haven't, don't worry - we still have 8 months to go. But remember, they speed up as we get closer to Christmas - it's a well-known fact that the last six months before Christmas have fewer hours in them. Ok, I made that up. But it sure seems like it's true.
I do have a bit of news - exciting to me, at least - I finished my hand-quilting for my Sis Boom quilt! Ten days ahead of schedule! I'll show it to you when I get the binding on.
So, do you want some tutorials to start you off this month? I do.
From Carmen, who is a perfect dear....
Allsorts has the cutest bunny tutorial, along with the dress pattern for bunny.
Buzzing and Bumbling is a cute blog, scroll down the right-hand sidebar for some tutorials and ideas.
Cute tea cozy at Stash Manicure .
From Our Shabby Cottage, a kissing ball - everybody needs one of these at Christmas!
And a few from me -
Em's Scrapbag has a great tutorial for Stuck On You dishtowels, cute!
Penny from Sew Take A Hike has a darling tute at the Moda Bake Shop, for a reversible rug/bath mat. If this doesn't come up to the proper link, the project is called Strawberries and Sunshine. I really want to make this.
That is IT for now - guess I'd better get browsing! I should have a bit more free time, now the quilt is done. I'll leave you with one more piece of evidence that spring is almost here....
Go forth and create something!
