Have you jumped aboard the Christmas Train?



We're near the end of January, the first stop in our Christmas gift making journey!




Are you excited because you've completed your January Christmas gift goals? I've heard from several of you who are chugging right along - woohoo!!! Mary completed two Full House Schnibbles projects, Carol has some adorable kitchen towels, Carol completed a pillowcase for her granddaughter - the list goes on.





If you're still struggling with gift ideas please visit Cheryl's blog for lots of wonderful tutorials. And, there's more to come - she's really good at finding lots of terrific ideas!





Last week I told you I'd have a big announcement today! Well, you'll have to wait till next Monday because I don't quite have my act together. teehee!!! I will tell you that it should provide more motivation for you to jump aboard the Christmas Train as we continue our Christmas Through The Year journey.





Next Monday I will provide Mr Linky so you can link your blog to show your finished project(s). You'll have till the end of the month to provide your link and on February 1 we'll draw a winner of the January stocking!





If you haven't started working on your Christmas gifts now is the time to get busy. Remember it's about no stress and no pressure with fabulous results in December!





In Friendship!

I'm glad to know I still have a week to get my act together. I have an idea what I want to do I just need to make the time to do it.

I'm still in the "planning" stage! Wahhhh! I have all kinds of ideas, but I haven't taken the initiative to "just do it" by starting on one. I am, however, in the midst of making a special quilt/wall hanging for my dad and stepmom's 30th wedding anniversary, and that is taking priority right now. I'm glad I still have one more week to get something made for January!
