  1. I'm looking forward to seeing what you make with that neat fabric. I've become one of those "crazy" people who could have Christmas things around 365 days of the year, so hopefully I'll see something I want to make.

  2. Going to be lots of fun! My link works perfectly. Thank you and Samm for all your hard work.

  3. My link works--yay! I love that fabric...guess I better do some digging through my stash or force myself to go to a quilt store. LOL! Like I have to be forced to do that! :O)
