The After Christmas Sew Along!

"After Christmas"??????
It's not even Christmas yet!
You're probably thinking that I'm crazy right about now,
but there is a method to my madness.
If you are anything like me, you are WAY behind on your Christmas crafting and sewing again this year. And all those really fun projects that you wanted to make for yourself and your own home got pushed to the backburner while you try to crank out those Christmas gifts for everyone else.
I've been ooohing and ahhhing over all the cute table runners and Christmas quilts I've seen all over the sewing blogs and wished in my heart
that I had the time to make one or two of them for me :)
That's when the idea hit me!
Instead of an After Christmas Sale......
why not have an After Christmas Sew Along!
It's the perfect time of year to pick up holiday fabrics and notions at rock bottom prices and after Christmas you don't have the stress of getting things made by a certain deadline!

So here's the plan:
The fun starts January 1st and runs through the 26th.
I will set up a flicker group for you to show off your fabulousness :)
And YES...there will be prizes!!!!
Every Friday in January I will pick a winner at random from the flicker group and I'll post the winners the next day.
Even if you don't win a prize from me,
you'll finally have some new Christmas goodness for yourself!!!
So who is with me????
I'll post all the details next week so stay tuned
and grab a button for your blog to share the love :)
