It's Week 8 of the blog hop!

The Vintage Christmas Sew Along is in full swing! All of the cute blocks that you've been seeing are found in this bodacious book by Lori Holt:

I'll share one block with you this week, and another next week! This week, here is the "Warm Hat" block:

I rooted around, er, dove in and swam like Scrooge McDuck, er, searched through my stash, and came up with some vintage-y fabrics.

I have plans for this block (and next week's, too!) so I made two versions -- just reversed the fabrics for the second one:

Have you ever been sewing happily in your creative space, and then gotten frustrated because you had to struggle with a book? You only wanted it to lie open so that you could refer to it. Is that too much to ask?
But nooooooo, that book dug in its heels and stuck out its chin. It glared at you and said, "You can't make me!" And unfortunately, it was correct!

But no such troubles with these great Lori Holt books from the folks at It's So Emma . . . these are especially made to fold over and lie flat so that you can easily consult them while you are creating!

Gotta love it! And here is where you can get one just for you! (Click on that link and grab one for your very own!)

Here is this week's schedule of creative bloggers:

Week 8 – Friday, December 14

Sure hope that you will join us -- there are many cute projects in the book, and we're having a blast!

Be sure to join us next week; we'll show our second block and the surprise project, too!
