Put a little ‘Joy’ in your heart – Block 6: Let’s start Christmas SAL

Let’s do a little recap…….

We started this stitch-a-long on Thursday 28th August 2014 where I released one Christmas stitchery block HERE in my Craftsy shop for you to nab and stitch along with me, and then, each following Thursday through to today, I released another.

Can you believe we’re up to the last one, number six, already?  It’s flown by so quickly….a bit like this year has, hasn’t it?  Which is why you don’t want to be caught short, leaving your Christmas planning till……..later???   I know I’m usually the one to do that, and before I know it, it’s Christmas Eve and I’m madly rushing around trying to organise things.

Block 6 JOy

This year I want there to be Joy throughout the Christmas preparations with not a tear in the house, which is why I’ve left this wonderful Christmas word till last, as my constant reminder! 

Could you believe, over on the Facebook Group page (yes, we have a group page for the Let’s Start Christmas stitchers!), a few of the girls were trying to guess this week’s word….and one lucky Miss did!!!   Good on you Teresa, you clever little thing you!  If I’d thought about it earlier, I would have suggested everyone had a go and offered a prize for the winner/s!  Never mind, we all now know that Teresa is our clever clogs of the week! Yaaaaay.

So, pop on over and grab your copy of this week’s block - ‘Joy’.  For only $2USD, it’s a bargain!


Next week, on the 9th October, a pattern for a Christmas table runner featuring all 6 stitcheries (and a little extra stitchery freebie) will be available FREE for all those people who have bought all 6 blocks.  I’ll be emailing it out to you on the 9th. 

But don’t worry if you haven’t purchased yours yet.  You’ll still be able to buy all six patterns until the 8th and still qualify for the free pattern with extra stitcheries……OR…….. I’ll have the entire pattern with all 6 blocks to purchase , with the additional stitcheries, for $14.95USD.  It’s up to you!

Just think what quick gifts you could make using any or all of these sweet blocks.

Now, I best go and put the finishing touches to the table runner!  I really want there to be Christmas Joy in our house this year!

Oh my goodness.

You didn't really start releasing those in August did you. I'm sure it was only last week.

I am in denial about October. The kids are on holidays for a few more days, I'll turn my brain back on after that.

Now off to craftsy.

That's my favorite one yet. Just love it! I'm thinking just the words by themselves would be great as centers for a set of Christmas placemats. Those would get more washing and so simpler would work great. Love your setting fabric, too. Thanks for your very generous nature!
