Countdown To Christmas.....Day 7....

On Day 7 of our *Countdown To Christmas* we've got another fun project for you that's quick and easy peasy!  (It occurred to me today that I probably should have been counting backwards to Christmas....you know....24 days left, 23 days....oh well.....not going to change things now!)  Anyway....I digress....this project is called the *Snap Happy* bag.  It's a little bag that comes in three different sizes and has a *snap* closure like a hex frame.  But here's the cool part.  I don't know if you've ever tried to put in a hex frame or had to put out the $$$ to buy a hex frame.  They're expensive and in my experience, they're not a lot of fun to install.  Sew....here's the *trick* to this closure ~ it's a metal carpenter's tape.  You might even have a broken one out in the garage right now that would work!  It's so very clever and works so very well.  We've got quite a few patterns in stock; it can be made in an afternoon; and we do have one or two cute yards of fabric to choose from  =)

OMG....what a crazy busy day we had today!  Lots of folks still planning holiday projects.  And we got some great freight today too.  I heard that....you wondered what it was ~ right?  Well, some fun novelty prints.  The twice baked potatoes are back; golf balls; bicycles; library books; fun dots in fun colors; more *text* fabric; Seahawk green and some white on whites.  I think tomorrow will be just as fun as today....Jan's going to try and get the borders on our *Treeline* project and Nikki has put us in line for it to be quilted!  Hope your Monday was a good one.  Talk to you tomorrow.....
