Welcome aboard the Christmas Train!!!


I'm so glad that so many of you are excited about the "Christmas Through The Year" bloggy club.

This is a fun and simple bloggy club - no pressure and no stress!! I'm going to suggest that you start small (mug mat, pillow case, table runner, etc). If you're ready to start BIG then by all means. :-) We're here to cheer you on. Remember you have all month to get your first gift completed. Cheryl, has done her first post about the bloggy club and has some awesome tutorials for some adorable projects.

By the way, I know it'll be tempting to give your gift away right away...........don't do it! LOL Finish the first gift and put it away in your box, totebag, drawer or basket. It's going to be fun to look back and see your pile of gifts growing.




Here's a little teaser - teehee!!


I'm already having fun - could this be the start of my first gift or the giveaway prize? LOL


I promise this is my last post about the "Christmas Through The Year" bloggy club until next Monday. :-)




In Friendship!

Perfect forum for doing my X-stitch ornaments! Hope I can keep up!

I took the last stitch in my first gift last night...snapped a few photos this morning too! Does this mean I'm on a roll? I sure hope so!!! Did you see all the things happening in blogland for 2012?!!! I've been trying to add them to my sidebar...just cause.
