Christmas In July

While surfing the blogosphere the other day I came across a couple geniuses (but being a non-genius myself, I forgot to copy their blog addresses) who are starting their Chrsitmas stitching in July.  I thought it a brilliant idea, so I'm going to do the same.  I believe they will be posting their updates on Sunday but I'm going to do mine on Friday. 

Last year I got such a late start with my Christmas stitching that it almost wasn't fun and I don't want the same to happen this year.  I have picked 3 ornies to make.  The Sock Hops are for my young nephews and the Santa drummer is for my brother:

TaDaa!  the beginning of Christmas Tree Sock Hop and my first 2012 Christmas stitching:

And since I was picking the Christmas ornies for my nephews, I also picked out their Halloween ones (aren't they cute?):

Wednesday was a momentous day for The Old Eurpoean Sampler -- yippeee! -- I turned the corner with the dark brown line and have been turning the corner with the other layers also:

Since it's going to be another scorcher this weekend I'll be staying in the A/C again and stitching, so with luck, the whole corner will be finished by Monday (and maybe a Christmas ornament).

Enjoy your weekend!
