It’s July and for many that means Christmas in July and time to get started on sewing for the end of year festive season. For those of us taking part in Ho, Ho, Ho and On We Sew, however, it means that we are seven months into our festive sewing and well on our way to being organised for the end of year festivities.
As always there is a monthly link party for those who have been sewing away and this month the party is being co-hosted by Martha over at Weekend Doings and Chelsea at Patch the Giraffe. Both ladies have great ideas to share: Martha has shared her pattern for an envelope bag, perfect for storing stationary, ipads or other tablet devices; while Chelsea has a tutorial for the cutest Christmas pillows.
The link party will be open till the end of the month as usual and don’t forget that if you join in the fun and link up your makes you will be in with a chance to win this month’s link up giveaway which is being sponsored by the Fat Quarter Shop who are giving one lucky winner the chance to pick their favourite from the Fat Quarter Shop’s range of mini charm packs. I wish that I could say that I was as organised as Martha and Chelsea this month but I have to be honest and say that I have barely picked up a needle. We’ve been enjoying/surviving what I can truly say is the most amazing of summers and all thoughts of sewing have just been abandoned for now. I’m sure that once things cool down again I’ll get back to it with renewed vigour. In the meantime I look forward to seeing what you all have sewn and if you haven’t done any festive sewing yet then don’t fret as there is still plenty of time left to get sewing and to link up your makes.
