Christmas in July plus more ideas for seasonal sewing and crafting

I thought you might like to see some of the projects I did last year during my 12 Days of Christmas event coinciding with the Christmas blog hop event. Here are some links to those projects, plus some other Christmas projects from prior years. In keeping with my blog being about a lot of subjects, there are a number of different kinds of projects here. I also added a page at the top of the blog to gather my Christmas projects together for your convenience later. Click on the titles to see the post.

And one last idea from last year, use a table runner as a bed scarf! Makes a room festive without taking up a lot of storage space.

The Christmas in July Blog Hop ends today, so I wanted to give you one more list so you can get in on the drawings for the wonderful prizes Sarah hasSarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict arranged a great hop and giveaway Deadline for entry has passed.

The lovely folks over at Free Spirit Fabrics have donated not just one item for a giveaway, but THIRTEEN!  And it’s pretty drool-worthy stuff, too – it’s Tula Pink’s new holiday line, Holiday Homies!!!

Sarah has six design rolls, six layer cakes, and one fat quarter bundle to give away – and here’s how she’s going to do it!  Visit each stop on the hop, including this blog, and leave a comment on each post for the day.  At the end of the hop,  Sarah will do a giveaway for each day by putting everyone’s name in the hat who commented that day (from all that day’s hop-blogs), and drawing a winner for that day.  That will be twelve winners – the design rolls and layer cakes.  Then she’ll put all the names from all the days in a hat and draw out a grand prize winner for the fat quarter bundle!  Only one prize per person, though – let’s spread it around a bit!  So carve out a bit of time to visit all the blogs and comment – it makes the time bloggers spend on each post worth it when we see what people think about our work!  The deadline to make a comment on all the blogs to be included in the drawings is July 26th.  Due to some family problems, the drawing will be delayed to August 4th or so, as she deals with her father-in-law’s illness and hospice care.     Giveaway is done.

Here are the participant blogs, have fun!!   The participating blogs are linked to their main pages, you may need to scroll back to find the Christmas In July post.  You’ll note that some blogs are listed more than once as have more than one project to share.    My link will take you back to that page for the travel bag.

Link party

I have found so many neat things on other blogs, and the latest blog to capture my attention is Sew Fresh Quilts.  There are interesting block tutorials, quilt-a-longs, a wonderful quilt gallery, and lots of participants in the link party.  Naturally I had to add this one to my ever growing list on Bloglovin!  Check it out with this link.
