12 Days of Christmas in July Blog Hop and Quiltalong, Day 12! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Merry merry Christmas in July!!  We've made it through the twelve days of Christmas (sort of) and the big day is finally here.  And speaking of the twelve days of Christmas, do you know how many gifts you would receive if you had someone who followed along with the song and gave you all the described gifts?  364!  Thank heavens for Google - I'm just not up to that kind of math - but it is pretty amazing, isn't it?  Today Karrin of Karrin's Crazy World is going to bring us home with a little bit ...

12 Days of Christmas in July Blog Hop and Quiltalong, Day 10! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

We're moving into the double-digit portion of the hop, which means we're almost finished - but there's still plenty more inspiration to come!    Today Carole of From My Carolina Home will be sharing some things to use to decorate your home for the holidays.  I don't know about you, but I can NEVER have enough Christmas decor!  I have some favorite pieces that come out every year, but then I pick and choose from the rest so that it looks a little different each time.

12 Days of Christmas in July Blog Hop and Quiltalong, Day 9! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Do you remember the anticipation you felt for Christmas as a kid?  That feeling that the day would never EVER get there - and yet it was such an exhilarating feeling.  (Does anyone else have the song - or an image of ketchup! - running through their head right now?) I kind of feel that way during this hop as I wait to see what our blog stops have in store for us.  Today we will have two stops to make, and two chances for some serious inspiration!  First stop is Kathy of Kathy's Kwilts and More, and then be ...

Can you believe that we've passed the halfway mark in this year's 12 Days of Christmas in July blog hop and quilt along?  But there's still so much more goodness to come, I know you won't want to miss a single day.  Today Vicki of Vicki's Crafts and Quilting will be sharing with us, and I'm on pins and needles to see what she has to put us in the Christmas spirit.  (Maybe I should have checked my chair to be sure my pincushion wasn't there first, but oh well...)  We ...

12 Days of Christmas in July Blog Hop and Quiltalong, Day 6! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Welcome back to the 6th day of this year's 12 Days of Christmas in July Blog Hop and Quiltalong!  I tried to write this post sitting outside on my patio, but whew!  The weather is not cooperating with my feeling all cool and Christmas-y at all!  So now I'm inside drinking a cool beverage and thinking wintery thoughts and trying to get back into a Christmas kind of mood.  And I have every confidence that today's bloggers, Katie of Katie Mae Quilts and Shasta of High Road Quilter, can help me get there.  If you ...

Make-A-List Monday - Progress, A New List, and Quilt-Along Fabric Requirements! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict


 Hi, all!

Ho win the world did Monday get here so fast?  I think I completely missed the weekend.   Summer days all seem to sort of run in together, don't they?  But it can be such a wonderful restful time, once it gets too warm to plant things in the ground.  I seem to be spending my time now daydreaming about what I want to do next year and asking the wonderful folks at my local nursery the best way to do things.  I'm really glad they're so helpful!

I did get some things done in the ...
