I saw today that there are only 47 days until Christmas and, with Halloween behind us, we’re officially in the holiday season! Last year, I participated in Kim’s holiday Dare to Do it Yourself Holiday Blog Party. I had fun, but I wasn’t the most creative or handy DIY-er.

BUT, this year I’ve been practicing getting my sew on, and I’m feeling crafty and prepared for the upcoming challenge. In fact, I’ve started a couple of projects, one of which involves a black pillowcase and some blue embroidery floss. I don’t think you’re going to guess what I’m making, but I’m pretty confident you’re going to love it (or at least really like it. I hope.).

Oh, I guess I forgot to mention that Kim is hosting this challenge again. Yay! If you haven’t signed up already, you should! Not only does it give you inspiration (and a time deadline, which I so desperately need), you get a lot of great ideas for future projects.

Hop on over to Newly Woodwards and tell Kim you’re in!


Also, don’t forget about the Miracle Blanket giveaway, running through 8 PM (EST) tonight!
