I cant cover it up, its all about Christmas…

Anyone who knows me, knows I LOVE Christmas, so I couldn’t resist making a quilted Christmas countdown wall hanging, that way i can keep you guys up to date too 😉 A free pattern for this will be available very soon, its on my to-do list for Monday. as of today there are only 37 till Christmas  – yay!!

The Christmas countdown wall hanging comes with a cute drawstring bag to hold all the numbers in, and is tied onto the quilt with some adorable ribbon from Groves, and available in all well stocked craft stores

I couldn’t resist a cute ‘HO HO HO’ wall hanging to go with the ‘SNOW’ wall hanging i made last week, i just love the cute Christmas fabrics from Craft Cotton. The blue fabric was perfect for creating snow globes for the ‘O’s and a little fussy cutting of the snow animals

Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a special quilt for my dogs, and Camelot fabrics have released the cutest Christmas dog fabric, available from Craft Cotton and Hobbycraft

  1. Hi Michelle! I love every bit of this post. I adore every moment of Christmas, and in fact have some Santa gourds on my mantle 24/7/365. The are too darn cute to pack away. It’s never too early to decorate for it in my book. I’m so glad you’ve enjoyed your IBA time. I would love to try being one, but don’t think it’s the right time. I don’t need any stress trying to come up with new and/or different projects each month. That sounds really, really hard. I’ve enjoyed all the projects you’ve shared. Happy Sunday! ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. I don’t do much for Christmas right now. The kids – my son and the cousins are mostly late teens to young adults, so we are in the in between time. I am making one little Christmas thing this week for a blog hop next week. The countdown is adorable, I am just glad I have little to do this year!
