August - Christmas QAL & Challenge







Well last month's Christmas Quilt Along helped me get ready for the 'HoHoHo Hop' - thank you ladies.  Even hid that test piece I did for Bea.  This month's hostess is the Jolly Joanna over at NeedleThreadHappiness - maybe you would like to join in and link up this weekend.


  
Yes, my other mini twister tree was a test run of the pattern.  Some adjustments were made and I am ready to tackle my Challenge piece this month.  That tiny twister takes a lot out of my concentration, so I may only get a third of the cutting/re-piecing done today.

I have a secret swap I want to do some work on - that I can't show because I know she reads my blog.

And I  would like to do some Christmas runners and found this site BayWindow Quilt Shop - and can see a couple of simple runners that I can use some of my holiday fabric scraps.






** I had over 50 no-reply commentors on this hop - way more than I have ever had.  It is mostly those who have a Google + account - thus, I have added a button on the side bar to take you to a tute on how to take care of this problem.  If you never got a response back from any blogs you left comments on - more than likely you are a no-reply commentor. ** 
  The winner of my HOHOHO Blog Hop give away is

I love your min-twister Christmas Tree I bought one of those Twister templates but I haven't used it yet. Where did you get the pattern for the tree? Your cross- stitch is lovely.

I will be contacting her for mailing information.

Sewingly Yours,  
Sharon

  4. Wow, 50! Google with the big push to have people join up seems to be winning and these poor people don't even realize it. It's really frustrating.

  9. Too bad about all those 'no replies.' I'm sure a lot of people don't realize that they come up as 'no reply' when they change to google+. I love your blue tree and can't wait to see it finished.

  10. Love your blue Christmas tree. Reminds me of the Christmas tree my mother put up in the living room every year when I was growing up. She would spray our cut tree with snow and then hang blue light and ornaments on it. It was a dreamy tree.
