Di's Christmas "3" in August Challenge

Hi everyone!! I worked today. It was really hot and humid. Which really tested my patience. I had a lot of work to do and I was so excited to come home. I was all ready to go, I was tired.....but I couldn't find my car keys. I searched and co-worker searched and searched. I just couldn't find them. I was so frustrated. I said a little prayer to St. Anthony. He's the Saint that helps you find things. I said: "Please St. Anthony help me find my keys, I'm so tired and I want to go home." I turn around and look at my work bag. I look inside again. I have this little pocket on the inside of the bag that I put some papers in. I move the papers around and what do I find. My KEYS!!! AHHHH..........They were in my bag all along. It took me 20 minutes to find them. I was really tired. But thankfully I did find them. My Mom always told me that if I lost something to pray to St. Anthony. It always works. I don't know why I waited so long to do it.

Anyways, I found a cute blog today. Di from Quilting is Blissful is having Christmas "3" in August Challenge. She is challenging us to make three Christmas projects in August with her. I had already purchased some Christmas fabric to add to the fabric I already had and bought the nicest Christmas pattern booklet. So I had already decided that I was going to make some Christmas projects in August. This Challenge is just an added bonus. I haven't started any yet. So they are all going to be started from scratch. I can't wait to get started. Well, I hope you all have a good night. I'm going to bed now. I have to work tomorrow evening and I have lots to do before I go in.
Happy Stitching!
Ariane :o)

St Anthony strikes again! The ladies in our parish office told me one day that they were on a first name basis with St Anthony, so they told me they would say...Tony, Tony, look around, somethings lost and must be found. It works every time!

isn't that frustrating when you can't find something when know they should be right there. Your Christmas patterns look great. I can't do the challenge as I will be on holiday in August!

It will be fun to see what you make. My Christmas to do list is to make a Christmas quilt. I have so many different fabrics to make one but never have.
