Until yesterday the weather was more like summer and now in the shops there are all the christmas treats on display. Because christmas day is in three months time …
… so there are only 91 days left to make christmas presents and seasonal decoration. Some of the embroidery designers are very helpful at the moment:
- Embroider Library has its Christmas Club already since the end of July where every purchase earns points so that we work on our own gift (a gift card) with every purchase we make. And of course there are lots of new festive designs every week and old designs on sale for all our ideas.
- Flowerdog Designs is having a free sew-along since the beginning of August until the end of September for a table cloth with 8 block designs. Until the end of September these designs in 5 sizes are free! And in the Facebook group there is a lot of inpsiration already.
- Sweet Pea has started a 12 week sew-along this week. In the facebook group for the mystery christmas quilt there is a weekly code with which the design can be bought for 30% less. This week there is aditionally the border design on sale also.
Now I only have to choose which I want to do this year. I would love to use the pretty christmas fabric by FruBlomgren which I bought at Spoonflower. But that would match perfectly with her embroidery designs from last year’s adventcalendar, which I collected but have not stitched yet…
A thinking of adventcalendars, there are already several available but later more on that, as there are still 69 days to go until they start.
