Free Quilt, Sew and Gift for All the Winter Holidays



It is cold and snowing here, in Salem, Oregon...the wood stove is burning non-stop for our heat, the hot chocolate/tea/and coffee is being sipped, and  we have 'moving' quilts and a tarp on top of the chicken coop and a little heater blowing in warmth so they don't get frostbite on their combs and feet!




I'm sleeping under three quilts and two wool blankets on my side of the bed, and wearing fleece over everything during the day.

But its toasty up in my sewing loft and while I can't show my Christmas gift projects yet...suffice it to say, I am a busy bee year round so why wouldn't I be busy?




So, in honor of the holiday season and using our own creativity for the returning of the light into the darkness and expressing all of the joy that is ours to claim...free snowman quilt and quilt block patterns...lots of fun Christmas crafts and gift ideas...and maybe just a few other fun links, besides!






Making Mug Rugs and Mug Wraps!

or Making Aprons or Making Sewing Accessories for Friends like pincushions or needle cases or pillows, or reusable shopping bags from one style and then another, carry totes, or a million other fun ornaments, table toppers, wall hangings, etc.etc.etc.!


Have lots of cute Christmas or Christmas colored fabric scraps? Take a look at this wonderful easy but 'complicated looking' tree skirt by Annie as she shares her 'musings' on her "Freeze Frame" blog. You'll need a wedge ruler and 140 5: scraps or a a nice packs of charm squares to get 130 of them. Start cutting!

Halloween Mug Rugs (Pumpkin & Black Cat)

Mug Rug Madness (on Flicker)


 I make pillows, and potholders, and shopping bags, and pincushions, and shopping and gift bags...so of course, I share all of my own sewing tutorials but I also like to find and share ones from others. Giving and sharing is important to me in ways that go beyond what most people find time to do!




 My own heart shaped or themed tutorials:





My String Pieced Prayer Pocket Pillow make with strings or solids and use the little pocket in the back...for sending good wishes of any kind!









Heart pillows are the perfect for post surgery for either cardiac or breast cancer patients. Hugging a pillow over the heart after cardiac surgery or under the arm after breast surgery have been shown to help significantly with post-operative pain.
