The Stockings Were Hung...


by the chimney with care...

But these stockings can be hung, just about anywhere.

They hang from a package, they hang from a tree, you can fill them with goodies,
be it candy or dinner and a movie!

And for that Disney addict in your house...
Just fill them with Disney gift cards, you see.

Best yet, they are quick and easy to make with the help of Crafters Edge dies.
You can cut up to 6 layers are one time, with their
 Crossover II cutting machine. The pressure settings makes it so easy to do.

Fuse your stocking to 1 layer of felt and stitch using your favorite method.
When your done, add another layer of felt on the back and straight stitch around the stocking, leaving the top open for adding goodies. 
Trim felt with pinking shears.
Cut a 5" strip of felt 1/2" wide and stitch it close to the corner by the holly leaves for hanging.

These 3 1/2" wide by 5 1/2" tall stocking will tickle anyone's toes!
Did I mention this die is on sale?
Hurry on over and check it out

til next time...
Keep on Stitchin'

Santa Stop Here

 These are the words, that are music to children's hearts...

and this time of the year, we all have a little child in us now, don't we?

What better way to show the big guy we are waiting for him, 
 than with a "Garden Flag" hanging right where you want him to park his sleigh?
This is another in my Garden Flag series for Thermoweb, using their 
I love that you can take the fun outdoors, using this unique product.
It paints on easily and cleans up with water.
You choose the degree of protection you need, by adding up to 3 layers.

Check out my post on the Thermoweb Blog
and download the free pattern for yourself.

May Santa bring you lots of goodies this year!
Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?
Oh I gotta go, I think I hear him now!

I do wish you all, a very Happy Thanksgiving this week. 
It's a good time to count our blessings, and start the holiday eating binge!
I'm thankful, I'm not worried about the calories until next year now.

Talking about calories...
Make sure you join us for "Crazy Carols Calorie-palooza"!

But she is hosting her yearly "Virtual Christmas Cookie Exchange" starting Dec 6.

But you need to hurry, as she is finalizing the schedule soon.

Sneak Peek at 2022 Blog Hops

What's a Blog Hop, you ask?
It's like a quilt show, you can participate in, or visit in your PJ's,
right there in front of your computer!
No admission fees, no entry fees, and best yet...
You just make a quilt or sewing project, in the theme of the hop 
and share away on your blog!
Yep...that's what we call a "Blog Hop"!

Posting 101
There is plenty of time to see what's coming up,
 and it's important that you post on your scheduled day. 
Life happens...if your project isn't finished, that's ok, show us what you have anyway.
Sometimes its nice to know we aren't the only one, who is behind the 8-ball.
Unfortunately folks remember if you are a no-show, so don't be one of those!

Blog Hop Etiquette 101
Visit all the blogs in the hop. You find the most incredible folks
 and make such good friends.
Leave them a little sugar, by saying something sweet about their posts.
You know it makes your day to read them, as well!

Blog Hop Nice-ities
Have fun, inspire each other with your projects. Share patterns or tutorials.
Have a give-away, or don't have a give-away, that's completely up to you.
Please share pattern information in your post. We all love patterns now, don't we?
Invite new bloggers to join in. We love seeing our hops grow. Best yet...we cherish the old faces and friends we have met along the way. 
(OK, I don't really mean, you all have old faces! LOL)

Your information
Your name, blog name, complete blog URL and email
 are never sold or shared. 
We use it for scheduling purposes, of the hop only.

With that being said...

We would like to announce, next years hops!

Carol from "Just Let Me Quilt"
Carla from "Creatin' in the Sticks"
and I have been busy putting our heads together and we think we have come up
 with a fun filled blog hop year for 2022.

To keep it simple, we will only take signups 2 months in advance,
 but we wanted you to see what we have planned, 
so you can get those creative juices flowing.

January is the "Polar Bear Plunge" blog hop.
Bears, blue or anything cold. That's what Polar Bear Plunge makes me think of.
Share your favorite chilly project, with us all!
If you haven't signed up for the hop I am hosting in January
you can do so by emailing me with "Polar Bear Plunge" in the subject line and the following
A date preference, if you have one as well.
Thanks in advance...
it really helps us out if we have all the information as shown.
(Selina, Brenda and Becky, I have you on my list already)
Again, this information is only used for the hop. 
It's never sold or shared.

We look forward to seeing you in our hops next year!
