Cross Country Chrismas

Last week the Cross Country Christmas blog hop started. 12 designers got together to offer some fun give aways and fun Christmas projects to make. I have made 2 of the 7 offered so far.
take a look...

This was from Gudrun's blog. This was a fun and quick project I made it in one night. One of her suggestions was to hang candies from the buttons for an Advent calendar. I liked the idea so I made this one up and I think I will hang it up in the office. (I'm not sure?? -- I work for a dentist so what do you think candy in a dentist office ?? ;o] ) I picked up a copy of the Fons and Porter magazine and on the front cover it has a cute table quilt, as it turns out it's another Gudrun pattern I'm not sure if I will have time to make it up before Christmas but it's definitely one I want to make. :o}

The next project was just as quick and fun to make...

This came from Sandy Gervais' blog. Sandy made hers with wool. I don't have wool on hand so I made my with fabric and machine applique the Christmas ball. I think it turned out cute.

There are a few days left on the blog hop and the Cross Country button is just a few posts down you can hop on over and take a look.

I hope you have a great day. :o}
