A little holiday inspiration

I saw this photo somewhere...so sorry I can't remember where. I think a magazine. I've had it a while. It inspired me in a new stitchery design. A phrase my Grandfather use to say went perfectly with this. It's almost time for Christmas in July. I promised myself I would start in July this year and I'm keeping that promise!

More to come...

Good for you Shell! I was thinking the same thing. I don't want to be knitting or creating so close to Christmas this year!

I'm looking forward to what you come up with! Something beautiful I'm sure! Hugs, Christine

Hi Shell, I think we all have some of the same ideas of starting early this year. I have so many things I want to do. Your furry friends look like they had lots of fun in your previous post. We got a lot of rain last night. Part of the city has flood water including one of the city's facilities. I laugh at that one. I am reading blogs tonight while I take a change of scenery as the saying goes. Hope you are having a good week. Take care Your Missouri Friend.

But, But, But .... we still haven't answered the cards from year before last! Oh bother. Let's keep this from BL - she does not like Christmas.

It is going to be a pretty one though!

Hi Shell,

Great idea, and love the cozy picture you have shared. We have often celebrated with a midwinter Christmas dinner parties with family and friends in winter.
As you know Christmas in NZ is our summer, so it is not cold.
Hope that you are having a lovely week

Hugs
Carolyn

Saturday, June 25th, was LEON Day - which is a real holiday somewhere - and it marks six-months until Christmas. It is NOEL spelled backwards. I did not know this until last Friday when someone sent me a Happy LEON Day greeting. So everyone should take note, it is not too soon to start!! Judy C in NC

I'm so intrigued!

Thinking Christmas in July does make December less frantic.

What a gorgeous room! I can see how it would inspire you but I am curious as to what it inspired!!
Christmas in July is a great idea as it gets so busy. I putter at it usually starting about then but I think I got at it a little earlier this year though. I don't want a repeat of last Fall when I missed out on the peaceful quiet part of the Christmas season.

That is such a beautiful picture. Wish my living room looked like that.
Shell, I create every day....then when Christmas gets closer, I quickly create more!
