Jolly July is just around the corner

Jolly July is just around the corner

Jolly July is a fun time for enthusiasts of cross stitching and quilting, marking a mid-year celebration of creativity and craftmanship. This month, often synonymous with festive preparations, sees crafters immersing themselves in Christmas themed projects, inspired by the cheerful spirit of the season. Being winter in Australia we can enjoy the delights of a cold Christmas, when we would normally be sweltering in December. 

In the past I have focused on making ornaments for my Christmas tree, but this year I'll be swapping between Christmas quilts as well as cross-stitch. I have a number of WIPS I would like to get finished or at least part-way finished. 

During July I'll be posting a beginning and end photo of the project in question through our social media. 

Quilting: Moda 'Letters to Santa QAL'. I'm about half way through this project and really would love to get it done for this Christmas. For more information about this free QAL click on the link below. I'm using an older Sweetwater Christmas range - Red Barn Christmas.
