This is my one-hundred and first post! I started this blog in mid-January 2010 ... which by the way, feels a lot further away than it really is ;-).
I got my first Christmas package off in the mail today ... December 4th is the date for sending packages to our troops over in the Middle East, so my brothers little Christmas tree hit the mail today, with a few extra goodies packaged in there for him to enjoy. Our next deadline is for those Canadian packages late next week.
I found some great inspirations here and here and decided that I too was ready to create this pattern. I particularly like how the strong solids stand out.
The back is a cute print I found at 50% off at JoAnns this morning, by Debi Mumm and I'm quite smitten with it.
I liked it so much ... I actually went to my LQS this morning to buy Christmas fabric to make one for me! Stay tuned.
I am off to Chicago on business for a few days next week ... but then it's right back to Christmas sewing!
All the best
