Tu-Na Quilts: Christmas in July Has Arrived-Day One


This year’s blog hop is hosted by Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

Today’s participants can be found here and they are offering:

Friday, July 14th

Confessions of a Fabric Addict (she posts at 12:01 AM Central time) Sarah will be offering a quilt-along during these 12 days. Her post gives fabric requirements and cutting instructions. I hope you will join along as we sew our way through the rest of July. If you can’t participate now, remember this quick, easy tutorial when you need a quilt pieced NOW.

From My Carolina Home Carole makes sewing a zippered bag look easy. She offers the free tutorial and gives directions and pictures. Take it one step at a time and you’ll soon have one (maybe more if you can’t stop making these) gift made for someone on your list.

Vrooman’s Quilts If you have kids or grandkids, you might like to see these ornaments out of CDs that the kids can make. Jump start the little ones creativity, today!

Pampered Pettit  Are your pillows looking tired and worn? Breathe new life into them with Brandy’s quick pillow sham/covering tutorial. You could also make new covers for your existing pillows in pretty holiday fabrics and add some holiday cheer to your sofa/couch.

Remember to comment on each of the blogs above to qualify for some big fabric giveaways. If you need more info about the giveaways, see my post here.

What I Learned Today:

  1. “A good joke beats a pill for a lot of ailments.” Emery Styron (as quoted in an old Ann Landers column I found while cleaning off my desk)
  2. If I need to get something done, don’t expect someone else to do it especially when no one else is around.
  3. My son is very helpful. It will be sad to see him move out. No job offer yet but there is hope.
  4. Writing a post takes up a lot of time that I could be using finishing up my projects. I am not sure I will post every day, but I thought I’d at least get this hop started out and let you know the variety of things being offered.

Question: If Christmas really came in July, how different would your celebration be?

Thanks for stopping by and do come again.

Karen, Tu-Na Quilts
