We Pin You a Merry Christmas

We're more than halfway there for the Christmas in July Charm swap.  I still have 24 spots open.  I know it's hard to get in the mindset of Christmas in July, but, really, now is the time to start planning your Christmas projects.  I have a lot of ideas for my charms.  I want to make another Cherry Quilt, like the I-Spy I did for Willa,  but this time, with all Christmas prints.  It takes 228 prints to do it.  I did a charm swap last year and another a 10" swap with Angela this year, so with this filled swap, I should have enough prints to get it done.  I'm not above begging, so Puuhhhleeeeze, won't you take a spot- or two ?

I've started an  Pinterest Board board to get you and others tempted to join the swap. I'd love for you to pin to it also. Contact me and I'll add you as a pinner to the board.  

Here are some other ideas that are on top of my "to do" Christmas craft list:

Lee made this tree skirt from the charm swap last year.  She is a no-share flickr member, so you'll have to click on the link to see it.  I promise, it is awesome.

Of course, once you have a tree skirt, you need to make stockings to match.

But, I have to say, that the cutest thing I've seen today in looking for projects, is this Santa Mug Rug.

So, what's stopping you?  If you'd like to join, but there is some little thing stopping you, contact me and maybe we can work something out.  Come join us and make your own crafty Christmas goodness.
