This month's link party is hosted by the lovely Marie who blogs at Quilts with Personality , check out her beautiful Winding Ways quilt if you are looking for inspiration for a holiday quilt for 2015. Marie is sharing her tutorial for a gorgeous Christmas Runner too, so definitely worth popping over to have a look :)
If you are new to the party, let me fill you in on the details. Paula and I decided at the end of last year that Christmas 2014 was going to be different, this time round there would be no late-night sewing sessions or frantic last-minute dashes to the Post Office. This time we were going to work on Christmas and Holiday projects throughout the year so come December we would be so organised we wouldn't know what to do with ourselves :)
We decided to share our plans with our blogging friends and invite them to be organised too, with a monthly Link Party to provide a gentle nudge. As ever we have a lovely incentive for you to get crafting and linking and this time we have not one but two giveaway prizes.
Marie and Amitie Textiles a AU$30 voucher to spend at Amitie Textiles. So, if you have always hankered after one of Jen Kingwell's fabulous patterns then this could be your lucky day!
The winner of November's giveaway was the novelty pouch factory otherwise known as Sandra Sews
My own Christmas making this month has been of the edible variety than the textile.
For years my sons and then their girlfriends/wives have been responsible for the decorations on our Christmas Cake. Fierce rivalry, not to mention clouds of icing sugar, were involved in creating icing nativity scenes, polar bears and on one memorable year a Christmas Elvis!
Sadly this year only one son will be at home to decorate the cake, so I decided that if they couldn't come to the cake then the cake would come to them.
So, that is what I have been up to now it is your turn to show off your Christmas and Holiday makes for this month. Head on over to Marie and link them up to be in with a chance of winning one of those prizes! The link party will be open as always until the end of the month so even if your makes are really last-minute there is still a chance to link up :)
As always a big thank you to all of our generous sponsors, we couldn't have provided all of the great giveaway prizes throughout the year without them.
