December Christmas Through The Year

It's our last month, and a short one at that!  Remember, anyone can join in, all you have to do is make one gift to be entered in our monthly give-away.  It can be something you sew, or jewelry, or baked, anything, as long as it's handmade.

Our cut-off this month is December 21.  At midnight of that day, I will pick our winner.

I have some tutorials for you, starting with Mary, from Quilting in the Sunshine State. Remember the gorgeous Sewing Mat she made?

Mary has generously created a pdf of the pattern, and sent it to me to share with you!  You can get the pattern here, and please do go thank Mary!  What a sweetie!!  Thank you Mary!

Val Spiers has created a darling journal cover, love the kitty cat!
She also has two more kitty designs!  Scroll back through her blog, and don't forget to click on her My Designs tab at the top of her blog - she has lots of great stuff there!

Linda from Buzzing and Bumbling has a very sweet owl ornament tutorial!

Caroll from Attic Window Quilt Shop designed the cutest rooster wallhanging!  I really love this little guy!

Jenny from Elefantz has shared some really gorgeous tree designs, this one is made into a table runner!


I dearly love Jenny's designs!!!!

And finally, Michelle from L7 Quilt Co. has some of the best ideas I've seen yet for gifts.  Not handmade, but all about buying local and keeping jobs in America.  I LOVE this post!

So there it is, kicking off our last month in our Christmas Club.  If this is your first month joining us, welcome!  And if you've been here all along, thank you!  You have kept me inspired to keep going, and I hope you have a nice pile of gifts ready. At the end of the year, AFTER everyone has received their gifts, I would love for you to do a post showing everything you've made this year.    You can also upload your pics to our flickr group, found here.  Now go get busy, time is running out!!!
