Ready for Christmas Projects?

So, are you ready for Christmas projects? Some years the answer for me is "not yet" other years it's "wait, it's December?"  This year, for some reason, I'm raring to go! After a full day of prep, eating, family-hosting and clean-up on Thanksgiving, I should have gone right to my bed. Instead, I suddenly had a quilt in mind that I was dying to pull together so I stayed up and cut the whole thing. I can't wait to see it come together. (I paid the next day - I was pooped! But my project is patiently waiting for me to return. Maybe tonight?)
This is a little project that came together so fast today. A mini bunting made with my felt scraps from the felt circles pillow last year. It's so cute and came together so quickly - I used red & white baker's twine to string the pennants together.  
I think that one of the reasons I am so excited about Christmas projects is thanks to Stitch Craft Create.  At the Sewing Summit, Vanessa handed out copies of this magazine as part of her photography class.
It's such a beautiful magazine and it is FULL of ideas for Christmas projects - decor, gifts, and all around cuteness.  My girls love pouring over it as well.  Our copy is dog-eared all over the place. 
This velvet ribbon rose is another project from the magazine. I plan to finish it and make it into a Chrismas broach. Did I mention how many projects there are that I want to make?
 Like these felt roses?  So when Stitch Craft Create offered to send magazines to giveaway to my readers, I said, "heck yeah!"  Really - this magazine is so inspiring and full of SO many great ideas. But even if you don't make a single one, you will enjoy it for the eye candy!  So if you'd like a copy leave a comment. Giveaway open until Wednesday, November 30 at midnight (MST). I'll randomly select three commenters so that I can get these out to you asap for that Christmas inspiration.  WINNERS ANNOUNCED AT THE BOTTOM OF POST. If you can't wait, you can find the Stitch Craft Create on most newstands at craft and bookstores or you can order directly from SCC.
Are you a crazy shopper during the weekend after Thanksgiving? Call me a party pooper, but I tend to avoid the mall/Walmart/etc. like the plague during all the Black Friday sales. Thank goodness for online deals. :)  And since today is Small Business Saturday you can find great quilting deals AND feel good supporting small businesses at some of these online fabric shops:

Fresh Squeezed Fabrics: everything 20% off with the coupon code christmashop20

Burgundy Buttons: great discounts through Monday.

JAQS Fabrics:Everything 10% off with the code JAQSTenOff through Dec 1

That looks like a great magazine! I would love to win a copy. Thanks for the chance.


 Amy said...

I want to win one! I went to Vanessa's class, but she had ran out of magazines so I didn't get one. It looks like so much fun! Not that I need any more projects right now :)


Becky said...

I'm not sure I really need more projects to work on. Just kidding! I could always squeeze in a few more :) I almost never shop on Black Friday. One year I did, lived to survive, but have no desire to do that again. I do admire those that brave the crowds and come away from the experience with great bargains.

Thank you for this lovely giveaway offer. I have bee trying to cut back on my spending, but have browsed a number of magazines while in line at Joann's. This one looks great. I really like your bunting, and the rose broach and felt roses look nice. I avoided the whole Black Friday mess and stayed home and sewed/quilted. I did order one item I've been looking for on sale at Burgundy Buttons-- they're having a great sale! Looking forward to seeing your Christmas quilt!

Jessica said...

It looks like a cool magazine! I finish my classes soon, and as soon as I do i'm in full on crafting gear!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

No going out shopping on Thanksgiving weekend for me! I was blessed with Audrey overnight, so I spent quality time playing and reading to her!
The magazine looks like it has some great ideas.

Oh, and thanks for the links to some of the sales going on this weekend. The only store I went to on Black Friday was a little local yarn shop - supporting a small business a day early, I guess.

Kristie said...

Hmmmm, I am feeling a bit shafted as I was at said photography course with Vanessa and did not get a magazine! It looks wonderful. Maybe I will get lucky here. If not, I probably don't need more on my insurmountable to-do list anyhow ;)

ecuakim said...

I am not at all prepared for Christmas this year. But I've still got lots of projects I'd like to finish! Gorgeous magazines help. :)

RaeLyn said...

That magazine looks so fun! I too,am trying to avoid shopping this weekend. I've been tempted several times with the fabric deals, but my goal for the rest of this year (and beyond?) is to use the fabric I have. Maybe I'm the only one with this problem, but "Why is it so much easier to buy?"

Elle said...

I've been busy reorganizing my sewing room and found some Christmas fabric, but I'm not in the mood yet, so I hope I win your giveaway...I need some inspiration! Glad you had a nice end to your Thanksgiving...I had a little sewing time too and gave thanks for a patient fiancée!

Vicki said...

I love the mini bunting! I would love to win the magazine :)

Katy Cameron said...

Oooh, I've not come across this magazine before, but I'm sure I could happily add it to my monthly magazine collections :oD Thanks for the chance to win.

As for the sales, as it wasn't Thanksgiving here, I have been spared the madness (it's Boxing Day that everyone goes mad here), although the online sales have been tempting... :o)

Ooh that magazine looks like fun. I'm definitely in that, "it's almost December??" stage. Can't believe I'm about to start working on Christmas presents. Where did this year go?

Johanna said...

Looks like a great magazine! I avoid Black Friday too. I did however venture out for Small Business Saturday! I found some great deals on fabric - and it was exactly what I wanted.

Michele said...

I already see some projects that I'd love to make from that magazine. And yes I avoid the shopping over this weekend if I can help it. Too many years of working retail soured me to the craziness that happens.

Jennie said...

Wendy said...

Cindy said...

Looks like a un magazine! Love the felt flower wreath!

SewLindaAnn said...

I love having a sit down with a new magazine, it's almost like a obsessions I think. I've had to stop going to Barnes and Nobles so often because it does get too costly. Some mags. now cost the same as a book! Love the op to win, thanks and have a lovely Sunday!

Meg said...

The magazine looks great! I am gearing up to make a set of placemats and a quilt for some Christmas gifts. I better get going!!

notes of sincerity said...

Hi Amy.
I too received that magazine (so don't put me in the give a way). Oh goodness, it is just packed with pretty ideas.
I am the same way. No thanks on the black Friday shopping craze. Would rather be home decorating our tree with my family. Plus I am just not a real big shopper to begin with. Love online deals! Especially when they come to your door. :o)
Have a great day and get some rest. Can't wait to see your quilt!
love ya. Trish

Jenny said...

Since I like thinking about projects more than actually doing them (they always come out perfect that way), I would love this magazine. Thanks!

Aimee said...

ooh - cool mag! Thanks for the chance. It might get me into the holiday spirit - I am not feeling it yet!

Amy said...

I want to win one! I went to Vanessa's class, but she had ran out of magazines so I didn't get one. It looks like so much fun! Not that I need any more projects right now :)

BJ is Quilting! said...

A new magazine while soaking in the tub is my idea of a holiday!
I am like you this year, raring to go for Christmas.

Blessings...

Trish said...

What a great magazine! I'll have to go see if I can find one, unless I win one! Fingers crossed! Thanks!

Karry said...

Looks like a great issue - thanks for the giveaway!

Julie in WA said...

I usually don't catch the Christmas spirit until December hits, but this year my daughter has been listening to Michael Buble's new Christmas cd since early November. I guess it drove me to an early holiday mood. I put away the Autumn quilt (...I was hoping to finish it before Thanksgiving!...) and pulled the Christmas stash and WIPS out of the closet. I'd love a copy of the magazine so I can add even more chaos to this most wonderful time of the year!

What a fun magazine! I absolutely adore the trees on the cover & would love to make them with the aqua & red color combo I have seen at Pleasant Home. My daughter (12)wants to be a fashion designer and has her eye on the ribbon rose.
Thanks for sharing I'm with you, much rather shop online and visit the small independent shops in our quaint New England town :)
