Fun Stuff and Christmas Through The Year Tutorials

I won these wonderful goodies from Cheryll  who hosted our Santa Sack Swap…all things I love, and such a sweet personal handkerchief .    Thanks so much Cheryll, and thanks for hosting such a fun swap.
LurkingSew its finished 2012 Blog Button around the blogs I found Wendy’s Sew  It’s Finished blog.  It’s a challenge blog that you can join to finish up  UFO’s…..EUREKA!!  This is what I need…some motivation to dig in and finish up all those projects that are tucked away…..let the UFO sewing begin.   Are you tempted?? :-)!
I have decided that I will be posting tutorials on the first and third Mondays of each month.  It has been  so much fun looking  for  projects……some are from bloggy friends and some are new bloggy friends.   If you decide to use one of the tutorials for a project and are posting a picture on your blog please use the link back to the tutorial.  Good to give our crafters credit for their wonderful projects.  So here we go!!!!  Thanks to everyone for permission to print their links...and don't forget to check over at Darlene's for the wonderful giveaway she has whipped up this month......SO CUTE!!!
These two links are from Jen, Miss Punkie Pie.  First a two handed pot holder189854940511078771_XFb6kqxY_b from Liz at Sew4home.   So clever and these would make great Xmas gifts4h-badge-squares.

This next project  I will repeat closer to Christmas but I just had to show it now… had over 23,000 pins on Pinterest…. 189854940511078664_ub9hiYxM_c
Candy Cane Sleighs loaded with candy..YUMMY, from Ellyn’s Place.  Ellyn made sure to give credit to one of the ladies in her Bring n Brag group for showing them this project.  More tutorials will be coming from Ellyn.  Thanks Jen for two wonderful links.
Here’s another project from Liz at Sew4home..a 189854940511066702_NsrCecjj_b bed caddy.  Talk about being organized!!!  LOVE THIS…and this link has tons of great projects and info.

Here’s a very quick, easy and cute project from Lori at Bee In My Bonnet… hot/cold bags.  The fabrics she used are too cute 189854940511080566_OsOBGSEU_b for words!!   I have been following Lori’s blog for a long time….so much to see over there you probably will get sidetracked for some time.  There will be more links to Lori in the future.

Ashley from Make It and Love It came up with this very clever holder for charging your cell phone…I’m thinking I need to be making some polka dot ones for sure.  This site is loaded with ideas!
Besides being a good bloggy friend and trusting Darlene and myself to continue on with her club,  Allie is also sending me links.  Here is a wonderful Hexi 189854940511102011_lvKAr2KQ_bSnowman table runner from Paulette at Sweet P Quilting.  I know a few friends that would love this for Christmas not to mention ME!!!  So it’s definitely on my to do list!
Trash can
Stephanie at A Ditchin’ Time Quilts has this wonderful tutorial for a designer car trash bag!  This is so cool Stephanie and a great tutorial.
If anyone has a tutorial they would like to share please email me….I’m on the hunt!
