So, give your machine a little rest over the holidays and if you'd like to gain a Valentines apron, sign up on THIS post only before Jan. 14th, 2011. Hope to see those who joined me in the last two, as well as any newbies who missed out or ones who just love aprons, like us!
A little Christmas wall hanging ready for next years celebrations using a free design from Gail Pan, if you go by her blog she has a new free design for 2010.
Happy creating in the New Year

Twas the night before Christmas
and all through the Pins & Needles Land
Each stitcher was working on her last project at hand.
There were knitters, crocheters, apron and Annie sewers and quilters too!
All knew the clock was ticking ...
and they still had plenty to do!
Now those gals from Down Under, Mistea, Jindi, Vanessa and Khris were leading the band,
Ever so mindful that for them Christmas Day would soon be at hand!
When up in the Northland there arose such a clatter,
Every stitcher from Washington to New York sprang up to see what was the matter!
OH. they all cried with relief, it's just Nadine, Kay, Denise, and Sherry,
All working to made their Christmas merry!
But way down in Georgia it was quiet as a mouse,
As Doris sat crocheting in a brightly lit house.
Gizzy was sound asleep, so cozy and warm,
As he dreamed of doggie treats on Christmas Morn.
On the cold Kansas prairie the north wind was blowing,
Maybe by Christmas it would be snowing!
But that didn't damper Auntie's machine, it was whirring!
And what about Miss Pitty? Oh, she wasn't stirring.
Over in the Ozarks, Sue was still apron making,
Of course that is only when she wasn't baking!
And then there was Angie , feverishly working on her Prims,
But meeting her deadline was looking rather "grims".
And back up in Indiana, Brenda still has not gone to bed,
She's staying up drawing Annie patterns that are swirling in her head!
In the states of Texas and Florida, Jennifer and Robin were so relieved to see
That all of their gifts were finished, wrapped and under the tree!
And Cynthia in Virginia is done with her rug,
You know, it's the latest craze, the one to hold her mug!
Across the Big Pond is rughooking Heather,
I wonder if her studio is as quiet as a feather?
So to all of my ♥kindred spirit stitchin' Sisters♥ ~
Are you all crazy, out of your head??
Enough of your stitchin'!!! NOW ~ get off to bed!!!!! LOL!!!! :)
A Merry Christmas to each and everyone of you!!!!!!
Love and Hugz,
I've never hosted a give a-way before and thought it might be fun for my first one to be an after Christmas special.
The give a-way is pictured here; it is a brand new pattern that has not yet been added to my product line or to my website. The winner will receive the finished doll and her beloved pooch.
If you would like to be included in the drawing for this cute little Annie and her pooch, simply send me an email with your name and address to - firstname.lastname@example.org.
But....visit this page first so you will have a complete understanding of the give a-way.
The drawing will be conducted on February 1, 2011.
Good luck everyone and ... have a Very Merry Christmas,

Holly Jolly Christmas Quilt
from last year's APP Swap. So ... here's some pictures of it in the process!
I decided to tie it, so I could add lots of buttons, beads, jingle bells, etc. for embellishments.
Now, I just need more time to get back to it to put the binding on so I can hang it up ...
Think I'll finish it in time to hang it up for this Christmas? Humm ... don't know!
I'm pretty far behind with my Christmas gift making. But ... if I do, I post another picture of it finished ~ I promise :) What about you? Did you finish yours?
Have a wonderful, fun, stitchin' filled week!!!
