Can you believe that Christmas day is only 6-months away from today? I usually freak out when I hear things like....only 6-months away. It makes me panic and go nuts that I may not finish everything....really? I have plenty of time and instead of freaking out, I am going to use my time in the next six months wisely and do my best to finish everything on my list. But I am also going to try to not put too much pressure on myself, just enjoy the creative process. How about you? Do you freak out when you hear deadlines or do you just take it in stride?
Kim and she said I love a gift you can give that the recipient will take out of a box every year, look at it and smile as they remember where it came from! Thanks for the variety of gifts in one book.
And Kay in NJ said Here are my three criteria: cute, quick, and useable. Check, check, and check!
Ladies, please send me your snail mail addresses and I will pop the books in the mail to you so you can get started stitching.
Alot of you commented on how the little projects in the book are easy to take with you when you are out and about. How right you are! And because I always need to have something with me just in case I have a minute or two, I figured I need (and you too!) a project protector/take along holder. So I came up with the "Tag Along".
It's a fun filled project that has 2 very useful sides. One side is for your thread, needles, floss and what-nots. The other sides has a big pocket for your "Simply Christmas" book or patterns. It is big enough to hold your 8-inch hoop too.
It makes a great project holder for just about anything. It works great for little kids to take on the go with their color crayons and coloring books or even for the buddy artist that needs drawing paper and pencils.
I use one for my knitting notions and patterns to keep organized when I am busy running my kiddos everywhere. It's the perfect thing to keep packed with a project or two so you are always ready to grab it and go!
And if you need a project or two (or three) to fill up your Tag-Along, here are my six new embroidery patterns~
This is "A Little Flaky"
"Blessings".....When I count my blessings, I count you twice.
"Choose to Bloom"
And last but not least...."Treasures"......Simple pleasures are life's greatest treasures.
I hope you like them as much as I do. And since Christmas is only six months away, I thought I would give away a collection of the 6 new embroidery patterns and a "Tag-Along" pattern.
So...please leave me a comment and you will be entered to win. I draw a winner on Friday June 29th, so be sure to comment today.
I have alot more new patterns and books to share with you in the near future so please stop back!
