A Primitive Christmas Blog Hop!!

I don't know about you, but this unwelcome Polar Vortex that has returned (UGH!), and submerged most of the U.S. in cold, winter weather.  That chill in the air has worked to get me feeling like the holidays are coming soon.  

As we all prepare to give Thanks, and create innumerable To-Do lists of cookies to bake, groceries to buy, cards to send, and lots of shopping for gift giving, all in efforts to do wonderful things for your friends and family, I invite you to take a break, and do something very special...
...... for yourself!!

One of my favorite blog hops ever, A Primitive Christmas Handwork Blog Hop,  is returning, and this year, I'm soooo jazzed to have been asked to participate!!  (Still pinching myself!)

Beginning December 1st, and for fourteen days following, your favorite folk art and prim designers are offering a special, little something just for you!!  Free...a little Christmas gift, from us to you!!  While most of you know me for my "Prairie Style" roots, traditional quilting, and love of early American history, I do love to work and decorate my home in country, folk art as well, and this has given me the perfect reason to design something folky, and work with wool (hint, hint!)

Each of us will be offering a new holiday project for your stitching pleasure, along with a favorite holiday recipe (those tried and true...."everyone looks forward to it" treats) for you to enjoy.  How much fun is that???  Oh, yeah!

Here's the line up of your favorite designers, and the dates to visit their blogs.  And, that's not all!  There will be give-aways, too!!  Oohh...I can hardly wait!!  

Dec 1  *  Quilts by Cheri

Dec 2  *  Plumcute Designs

Dec 3  *  Gail Pan Designs 

Dec 4  *  Woolen Willow Designs

So, plan on spending a few minutes each day, beginning December 1st, with your favorite beverage, your computer or iPad, and your favorite prim/folk art designers for a little something special just for you.  It's our way of saying "thanks!", and giving back to all of you who give so much to us through the year!!


  1. I can not wait!! I look forward to this blog hop all year long!! I have several favourite penny rugs and pillows made from this Blog Hop in the past! I think it was called Home for The Holidays back then and it was wonderful! Thanks again!!

  2. Winter has arrived here in No. Ohio so I am ready to hunker down to my sewing room and the kitchen for baking. Bring it on.

  3. Snowy here the past couple of days. Getting me in the holiday spirit. I will look forward to this! Thanks for the "heads-up"!

  4. I am looking forward to it!! I will flag this email. I love folk!!

  5. Sounds fun! Looking forward to it :-) {Temperatures are rising here in NZ!}

  6. I am so excited and can hardly wait until the 1st of December. It'll be like receiving 14 gifts before Christmas even gets here. Now, I am really motivated to get my handmade gifts for family and friends done before the beginning of Dec.so I can enjoy the handwork blog hop. Even more reasons to look forward to the holiday season!

  7. I cannot get the pattern from Dec. 7 in primitive blog hop. Blackberry primitives?

  8. Love the pincushion, the red pick up loaded with trees is just too cute! Thanks for the patter, recipe and the chance to win the give away. Those snips are perfect for retreats or friendship group meetings.

  9. Love your little wool pincushion. I have just started working in wool and will be doing your pattern.
    I have just finished my first pincushion and think I will be making and collecting wool pincushions.
    Thanks for great patterns.
