Angels Stop Here - Day #4 of HOHOHO hop

Wheewwww.......  I made it!!!!  I didn't want to see what the wrath of Madame Samm was like (wink, wink) so I've been busy.  Boy has this hop started out with a wonderful bang.  I have loved all the projects that have been displayed...Some bloggers have really been sewing and then there is me with just one project to show.  This one project has been laying in my sewing bin as fabric idea for a rainy day project for about two years now. I decided it was time to dig it out dust it off and get to work. Sew it turned into a sunny day project. 

First I'd like to thank Madame Samm our leader and CHRISTMAS CAROL (labeled by Madame Samm) was our HO HO HO cheerleader.

I downloaded this free pattern several years ago from the Christmas quilt along.  It was posted by Erin  @ One Piece at a Time.


Back
could be used but it is kind of plain...I put it together using the pillow method instead of a binding. 

Now for a giveaway...I haven't had one in awhile and I wasn't planning on one this time, but Friday I went to JoAnn Fabrics....oh, my bad idea....well for my pocket book it was but JoAnn's made out alright.  hehehehe....ssssshhhhh don't tell my hubby....my girlfriend posted this on her FB page Thursday....
Stephen has two jobs today: Chauffeur and Chaperone.
Chauffeur because I don't want to drive myself to the fabric store.
Chaperone because I am not to be trusted unsupervised in the fabric store. 
I understand well what she is saying.....
Anyway....While at JoAnn's I found some clearance Christmas postcard fabric....
and some other as you can see...There are actually six postcard stamps it is folded under.

after getting home and pondering what to do with it.  I decided since as a family we don't do the Santa theme that I'd giveaway the two Santa postcard panels.
Sew this is the giveaway....Two winners each one will get a Santa postcard stamp and a quarter fat of the Christmas fabric pictured.  This giveaway wasn't planned it just happened and two people will be the lucky recipients.  I'm going to use rafflecopter to choose the winner so be sure to fill out accordingly and thanks for stopping by my blog today.

  37. I am glad you dusted off that project and got it made. It is adorable.
    And if my husband chaperoned me I would never get to buy anything. I have a few fovorite xmas decorations - but my most favorites are the little ones my daughter made in kindergarten, sunday school etc when she was little ( she is now 27 ) and the ones that my husband has bought me. And I love mistletoe.

  55. As strange as it probably sounds, I could be happy with my Christmas tree and nothing else but all my white lights strung on it. I absolutely love a tree with white lights. Shhh, don't tell my husband because then I won't have any help with the decorations, because let's face it, we all need to have the ornaments out each year that bring back memories of years past.
