Christmas in July!!

Do you look forward to the holiday season every year?  I do!  I love the decorations, the gift-giving, the togetherness and I LOVE getting a live Christmas tree every year.  I always have grand plans of making wonderful homemade gifts  but sometimes (read: always!) I procrastinate big time and end up stressed out about how I will finish making all those great gifts I planned and then I just run to the store and buy something. 

How would you like to avoid the stress and celebrate Christmas in July?  Rebecca from Sew Festive Handmade has put together a Christmas in July event so that we can all get a jump on those homemade gifts and decorations.  Together we can avoid the midnight sewing frenzy the day before you need that special gift!

Here are the details from Rebecca's post:
Starting Monday July 2nd, and each Monday for four weeks during the month you will be able to find some great holiday tutorials and inspiration here at Sew Festive. There will be two tutorials on each of the Mondays; one will feature decor for your own home, and the other tutorial will feature something that can be made as a gift [although you could totally keep it for yourself too and nobody will tell!].

Monday July 30th there will be a linky party here to show off your finished holiday-inspired projects. They can be projects that were made based on the tutorials throughout the month or it can be that Christmas quilt from 5 years ago that you finally.got.the.binding.on. And there will be prizes :)

All types of stitching will be welcome, so if you cross-stitch or embroider or spin your own wool, there will be something for everyone!

The whole point of this event is that we want to cheer each other on and get some holiday sewing out of the way before it's actually the holidays and we don't have any more free time.
Rebecca has some great tutorials and guest posters lined up!
Be sure to stop over, join in and tackle that gift list!!
