January's theme and giveaway!

Baby its COLD outside!
So what do you do when it is soooooo cold outside you want to stay and snuggle down in the house?

You create a warm and cozy space...maybe drink some cocoa or coffee and read a book.

This month's challenge is to help you do just that!  Create a small lap blanket to help keep you (or someone else) warm.  When I say small, I mean it....don't overwhelm yourself with a large project. The idea is to make it THIS month so you can use it this winter.  Considering winter lasts a mere 2 months here in Louisiana, I'm starting on mine TODAY!

For hooky folks, crochet or knit a lap afghan.
Sew a super simple baby quilt for someone who is expecting  Here is a quick tutorial.
For non sewers, try a quick fleece blanket where you cut and tie two pieces of fleece together.
Backed flannel blankets with no batting can be cozy, just finish with pre-made blanket edging.
Work a simple blanket stitch around a piece of pre printed fleece

WHATEVER it is you choose, post it here by the end of the month and I'll put your name in a hat for this little giveaway.     Among the goodies, there is another hand made angel, and some tags I punched from beautiful calenders I've been saving the last few years.  

here is a close up of the tags....most are glittered and all are beautiful.  If I did paper crafts, I would keep them for myself!!!

Happy crafting and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Well since I don't own a sewing machine it's going to be a tied fleece blanket. I still have a week left on my vacation too.
