The Fabric Maverick says... Believe it or not, the Holidays are around the corner!

November 11, 2008

I am sitting here enjoying a cup of coffee. The leaves on the trees have turned glorious colors of gold, red, orange, burgundy and yellow. The leaves are slowing falling to earth as nature prepares her blanket for the long, cold winter ahead. South Dakota already has four feet of snow on the ground. I am afraid that is not for me! It is hard to think that Thanksgiving will be here in a few weeks and Christmas not far behind. A sure sign of Christmas (besides all the Christmas decorations in all the department stores) is when you see all the magazines with their Christmas covers and tips on decorating for the holidays.

You may not have noticed but this year there were two collections called "The 12 Days of Christmas". I have taken this as a sign that Fabric.com should have a 12 Days of Christmas, too!  From Dec. 1 to Dec 12th, we will have a project for you to make if you wish. On the 13th day of Christmas, it will be Bah! Humbug Day because some of you will have lost the spirit. I believe that Chef Bubba will then arrive with his own special recipes for Christmas. I have tasted his Black Bottom Pecan Pie Cheesecake. To die for, ladies! If this does not restore your spirit, it will be time to break out the cinnamon cookies. Who can smell cinnamon and not get all cozy in their heart?

Get ready to have some fun! There will be some projects for the young also. Victoria will have her now 7-year old consultant available to test her projects. Now would be a good time to check your craft supplies. Make sure you have some of the following:

1. Glue (several kinds including Fabri-Tac, Water soluble glue pen)

2. Straight pens

3. An assortment of threads

4. Christmas fabrics

5. Flannel

6. Scissors

7. Rotary cutter and mat

8. Felt

This is a great time to bust your stash and use up odds and ends. Of course, supplies will be listed for each project. I know Nancy has a great project from Amy Butler so you will need different sizes of Styrofoam cones. Nancy is known as the queen of glue and clip rings so I am willing to bet that there is not much sewing!

Now that I have teased you with what is to come, I must leave just like Santa or as Daniel, our very own Prints Charming with these words:

"Get your Moda running, Christmas is coming!"
