I don't know about you, but this unwelcome Polar Vortex that has returned (UGH!), and submerged most of the U.S. in cold, winter weather. That chill in the air has worked to get me feeling like the holidays are coming soon.
As we all prepare to give Thanks, and create innumerable To-Do lists of cookies to bake, groceries to buy, cards to send, and lots of shopping for gift giving, all in efforts to do wonderful things for your friends and family, I invite you to take a break, and do something very special...
...... for yourself!!
One of my favorite blog hops ever, A Primitive Christmas Handwork Blog Hop, is returning, and this year, I'm soooo jazzed to have been asked to participate!! (Still pinching myself!)
Beginning December 1st, and for fourteen days following, your favorite folk art and prim designers are offering a special, little something just for you!! Free...a little Christmas gift, from us to you!! While most of you know me for my "Prairie Style" roots, traditional quilting, and love of early American history, I do love to work and decorate my home in country, folk art as well, and this has given me the perfect reason to design something folky, and work with wool (hint, hint!)
Each of us will be offering a new holiday project for your stitching pleasure, along with a favorite holiday recipe (those tried and true...."everyone looks forward to it" treats) for you to enjoy. How much fun is that??? Oh, yeah!
Here's the line up of your favorite designers, and the dates to visit their blogs. And, that's not all! There will be give-aways, too!! Oohh...I can hardly wait!!
