I don’t have much in the way of progress to show this month. I worked FantasyCon, had my high school reunion, hosted our annual Dutch Oven pot luck dinner. This didn’t leave much time for hobby work. I started the Tolkien quilt from my stash but I haven’t worked on much else hobby-wise.
You can see the work here.
So on to the question: Do you plan for Christmas in July?
Not really. July is when I start hankering for Halloween designs. I used to use July for Christmas ornaments but I don’t stitch for gifts anymore. Too many people don’t appreciate the work that goes into stitching. I only stitch for people who do hand work and understand the amount of time and money that go into such a gift. I don’t ever want to be in a situation again where someone calls a gift that I’ve put 40 hours and $80 into – “that kitschy stuff she gives us.”
So no, I don’t do Christmas in July although I do like the Christmas in July sales. Picture this Plus is having their annual sale this week. I keep eying the witches from Nora Corbett and this would be the perfect way to get matching fabric for the 4 that have been released.
