Well here we go!
I'm so excited about all the generous people who are
supplying us with discount codes and fabulous prizes
to make this a really fun month of sewing!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
The fun starts Monday January 2nd.
#1. Sew anything you like.
It can be Christmas themed or not.
I'll be sewing Christmas decor for my home
since I never have the time to do that.
Most of us are constantly sewing for others
and seldom get the chance to sew for ourselves.
You can even get a jump start on gifts
for next Christmas if you want to.
It's totally up to you.
#2. Every Monday, begining January 2nd for 4 weeks,
I will post a link to a flicker group
for you to share photos of your creations.
Each Monday there will be a completely new group
for that week only.
A winner will be chosen at random every Friday evening
and I will post the winner on
this blog on Saturday.
You can join in at any time!
That's it....easy peasy!
Just have fun!!!
