Welcome to week two of the 12 Weeks of Christmas! Did you have fun making Jenni's Snowflake Embroidery Pillow pattern?
Last year I created some doodles and different characters for holiday
related emails. Knowing the boss lady (Teri) had a mild obsession with
snowmen, I figured there should be at least one in the mix. This is how
Sullivan the Snowman was born.
It’s that time again; the holidays are just around the corner and we
here at Connecting Threads have been getting into the holiday spirit
with a fun new project: 12 Weeks of Christmas. To learn more about the 12 Weeks of Christmas event, check out yesterday's blog post: We're counting down the weeks to Christmas! I’m starting off the countdown with a new embroidered pillow pattern.
I don't think it's any big secret that the folks here at Connecting
Threads LOVE Christmastime. Case in point: there's a giant snowman in
our Director's office. This year, we decided to spice up the fun factor
around the office and get our customers and friends involved in the
joyous celebrations that we partake in as a group. Starting tomorrow, we
will be counting down the weeks until Christmas with a new, free
pattern that you can download each week. What's even better is that each
of the patterns are exclusive to Connecting Threads, and written by
members of our team. The patterns we will be offering are absolutely
awesome. Whether you're looking for gift ideas for your guild friends,
home decorating items, or fun stocking stuffers, you'll get a little
something for all of your holiday needs!
I love to take my iron to classes and retreats but don’t like to mess
with trying to figure out how to get a hot iron home. I have seen the Caddy Pad pattern made in many different fabrics and it always looks so cute.
When I saw Falling Leaves Pattern Download from Cora’s Quilts
I fell in love. This would look so perfect in my living room this
Fall. I used the 5 Fat Quarter option (which by the way gives you
enough fabric for a scrappy back…BONUS!) I thought this would look
great in Jenni Calo’s new line Mix It Up!
