Christmas in July
It usually starts with some blog post which includes link to tutorial which you can not resist. Or something that just inspire you and you have the urge to cut into your stash and start chain piecing.
That's how new projects sneaks in. And there is the Christmas thing on top of that. I actually looked up the term Christmas in July on web since we do not have such thing hence we do not celebrate it. July means summer holidays and you just enjoy yourself in general due to sunny weather :)
I do remember some blog hops and challenges called Christmas in July which includes some neat tutorials. You can check some on Forth Worth Fabric Studio blog or some crochet at Red Heart.
Linking up with:
You can also join contest of Patience Brewster which is run on IG - #PBChristmasInJuly
Their unique ornaments are pretty fun too.
Back to my project though. As I sewed those flying geese blocks I also sewed together the cut off corners.
I ended up with 36 pieces in 4 different designs. I used strips from Cherry Christmas jelly roll which are perfect size. My favorite are those hanging socks.
Plus I have 72 tiny HSTs which will end up 1 1/2" once I trim them. I know, that's a bit crazy but isn't Christmas in July crazy as well?
Anyway did you know you can prepare yourself for Christmas the whole year round? I always plan to do but you know how it goes. There is actually linky party with giveaway which runs the second year in the row!
It is called Ho, Ho, Ho and on We Sew and I'm using one of their tutorials and I plan to use some more :) Come join me!
