All I'm doing today is sitting so I might as well do the post to start us off for the month! How are you coming with your Christmas gifts - running out of room to store them yet? Only five months to go! We're on the slippery downhill slide to the big day....
I found a couple of tutorials for you, well one tutorial, and a site well worth a visit. The tutorial is for a patchwork camera strap cover, and boy do I need one of these myself! You'll find it at Fabric Family Fun. If you have anyone on your list who has a larger camera with a strap, this will help their neck.
The site from Sulky is wonderful. There are several categories on the left hand side to browse through. They have BOM quilts going back to 2006 [although I'm not sure what happened to 2007], hand embroidery, Christmas projects, you'll have fun there.
I also found a tote bag similar to the tutorial I used for last month's Christmas gift - it has six outside pockets like mine, but uses fabric instead of webbing for the handles. You'll find it at Craft Gossip. My tutorial called for 2 3/4 yards of webbing.
No movie this time, I've totally run out of movies to recommend. I guess I tend to watch the same ones over and over every year. Maybe put on some Christmas music while you stitch and get in the spirit!
Remember, there is no stress involved in our Christmas Club. You either make something and get entered in the give-away, or you skip it this month and try again next month. You won't get kicked out of the club for taking some time away. You can start anytime, and end anytime. Making gifts is supposed to be a joy! If I can ever figure out how to do pages on this here blog o' mine, I'll make one with a list of tutorials I've posted, so we have a handy reference guide and don't lose the links.
In the meantime, go play and create something beautiful!
