I hope everyone is enjoying the Ho Ho Ho blog hop. I sure am. Christmas is my most favourite time of the year and my favourite crafts to make weather it is sewing, cross stitch or painting. I don't do so much painting anymore but I do a lot of cross stitch and now sewing.
Thanks to Carol from Just let me Quilt for being our cheerleader. And thanks to Madame Sam from Sew we Quilt. They do such an amazing job and I always look forward to whatever project they come up with next. You will find the schedule here. So enjoy. Here is the list of the August 8

Make sure you visit everyone to enjoy all their projects.
Well time for my projects. I have this book that I bought a couple of years ago" My Runners" by disa designs. This is a great book and if you get a chance to buy it you won't be sorry. The second one is also great and now I see she has a third book also. You can find them on Connecting threads. Great books to add to anyone's collection. Fun easy and something for every occasion. Here is the one I did for the Christmas theme.
I really like this piece.
A very nice piece to do. This piece is called "Snowball Runner" designed by Lisa Bongean. It is 12" by 42" and the snowballs are 2 1/2" squares. Love this piece and it is going to be a keeper. Actually both pieces are a keeper.
Did anyone see these little tree mug rugs that someone had on a few weeks ago. Well I thought they were cute so I made a couple.
This is a paper pieced one and very easy to do. I also went shopping one morning and came across some Christmas material that I can't wait to make something with. The sale was suppose to be over but someone forgot to take the sign down so I got it for 30% off. Lucky me.
I wished I could of bought more. I did make a mug rug out of one of the blocks. I know I should of had a nice Christmas mug but hey I am at the trailer. I thought some Christmas runners would be nice also.
These could make some cute Christmas gifts. I also picked up this Christmas panel.
This could be made into some pillows or runners or a small throw. Not sure yet. So I hope everyone is enjoying the hop. Oh and what would be Christmas be without a gift. I decided someone might like the pattern for the Snowball runner and a mug rug.
So just leave a little comment and I will have a draw went the hop is over with. If you are not a follower make sure I will be able to contact you and have a great summer before winter does appear to us. It won't be long.
