Ho, Ho, Ho and on We Sew - more drinking!

Well, given that we have not really had much of a summer this year here in the UK it is not so difficult to think about Christmas, and just so that you know there are 18 Saturdays left until Christmas! Don't say you haven't been warned :)

As it is the 18th of the month, it is time to unveil another Ho, Ho, Ho and on We Sew Link Party to encourage/cajole you into getting organised for the Christmas Holiday season.

This month's link party is hosted by the lovely Deborah, who blogs at Sunshine through the Rain . Deborah has created a brilliant tutorial for Envelope Christmas Stockings that are the perfect project for children to make as end-of-term gifts for teachers and classmates. Think how smug you will feel when you have a stack of those sitting in the cupboard so far in advance of that frenetic run-up to Christmas!

Of course, it wouldn't be a Ho, Ho, Ho and on We Sew Link Party without a giveaway and this month's giveaway comes courtesy of the generous Annie at the Village Haberdashery.

One lucky linker will receive a £10 gift voucher to spend in Annie's great store.

I know that I would have no trouble spending that :)

The winner of last month's mini charm pack from the Fat Quarter shop was Frederique who linked up her paper-pieced Christmas Forest.

My own Christmas make this month complements this wine bottle cover that I made in June,

a set of Christmas coasters!

More linen from Latvia for the tops with plain red cotton for the letters and red and white gingham for the binding. I started to make these a while ago but tidied them away in a cupboard (!) so promptly forgot about them altogether. When we come back from our next trip to France next month I will also have the wine to go with them, so one more present sorted :)

If you have made any Christmas or Holiday gifts or home decor items this month head on over to Sunshine through the Rain to link them up and be in with a chance of winning that Village Haberdashery gift voucher.

As ever we could not provide you with all of these great giveaways throughout the year without the support of these generous sponsors.
