Earlier this summer, Holiday Forest took second place (behind Love Abounds) in the sewing division at the local fair. Woohoo!

My day in the hop is next Friday, but here's a sneak peek of what I've got in store for Christmas.

The idea rolled around in my head for a few weeks, then after several tries, it's worked out beautifully! Stay tuned!

Go visit today's blogs, From My Carolina HomeVrooman's Quilts, and Pampered Pettit. Be sure to leave a comment on each and every blog in the hop because there are prizes involved! Yes, prizes! Free Spirit Fabrics has donated not just one item for a giveaway, but THIRTEEN!  And as Sarah says, it's pretty drool-worthy stuff, too - it's Tula Pink's new holiday line, Holiday Homies!!!

There are six design rolls, six layer cakes, and one fat quarter bundle to give away. For a chance to win, visit each stop on the hop, and leave a comment on each post for the day.  At the end of the hop, Sarah will do a giveaway for each day by putting everyone's name in the hat who commented that day (from all that day's hop-blogs), and drawing a winner for that day.  That will be twelve winners - the design rolls and layer cakes.  Then she'll put all the names from all the days in a hat and draw out a grand prize winner for the fat quarter bundle!  Only one prize per person, though, to spread it around a bit. And it's open to international comments too - good luck all!

Now get hopping!
