I've decided the easiest way for me to update the latest links and ideas for the "Great Ideas for a Handmade Christmas 2009" is to just keep updating my original post about this. That way I won't be making new posts and then having to add all the ideas together at some point. So please go back down to the original post and look at your ideas I've posted so far. I'll update every few days. Thanks to everyone for the ideas so far. Keep 'em coming. My resolve for 2009 is to be better organized and having all the Christmas links together will help me keep that resolution (better than a diet!).
For Des - I can't make another post without a picture. So here is what I'm currently making, other than finishing quilting and binding the last of my "doll house" potholders.
You know Valentine's Day is 37 days away. I am making quilted Valentine Cards. They are small - 6"-8" in size. I seem to be making lots of small things lately. It is kind of fun to finish a tiny quilt in a jiffy. You can see the post mark feed sack, that I got for Christmas, is coming in handy. I am sewing a little post mark square in the upper right hand corner of each Valentine.
Underneath the valentines is fabric I'm going to use in the black/white challenge. I'm designing the quilt in my mind right now and pulling fabrics I think might work.
Go wish Eileen a Happy Birthday today! And in 2 days it is Terri's birthday at Purple and Paisley. And she's having a giveaway everyday all week to celebrate. Yayy Terri (I couldn't resist putting that in purple font). Happy Birthday to two of my bestest gal pals.
