Counting Down to Grinch-mas

grinchcountdownAs of today, there are 80 days left until Grinch-mas 2017! Yes, I’m counting them down… and I can’t wait to get to use my just finished “Merry Grinch-mas” quilted advent calendar.

It’s the standard design I created years ago, though the first quilted calendar I’ve done with a Grinch / Who-ville theme (check out others in my Whimzie Quiltz Etsy shop.) Each little pocket holds a single peppermint or Hershey’s kiss, so you can enjoy one per day – every day – until the BIG day!

This is the last calendar that my fabulous friend Shirley helped with. I’ve since purchased my own embroidery machine, and it’s a lot of fun, but I miss working with her terribly!

Love the Grinch as much as I do? Check out these blog posts with more of my holiday Who-ville decor – 

Quilting and Fabric Shopping Are Two Entirely Different Hobbies

I finished my new fabric shopping tote just in time for this weekend’s San Diego Quilt Show… it’s quite roomy and I can’t wait to fill ‘er up!

I had the image printed on a t-shirt at VistaPrint – their heat transfer process does an amazingly crisp and clear print on bright cotton knits. Using 7 oz cotton duck for the stripe and black fabrics gives the bag enough heft for stability, but keeps it light enough to carry. And it’s fully lined with a super cute grey dot that coordinates with the image.

Speaking of that image – the utterly adorable seamstress is from LovelyToCU. I fell in love with her the moment I saw it on Etsy.  This one’s mine, all mine 😀 , but I’m considering purchasing the commercial license so that I can sell these bags – what do you think, fellow quilters? Would you want to own one of these totes for yourself or maybe gift one to a quilty friend?
