Jolly Holidays…and a free gift!

I made grand plans to make LOTS of handmade gifts this year. So far, I have finished at least eight handmade gifts, and I have about seven more gifts and four stockings left to make. After all, Christmas is about the giving, not the buying, the shopping, and the getting! So, I’m giving of myself as much as I can this year! I started a batik Christmas table runner Saturday afternoon, and I actually finished binding it on Sunday evening! It is so rare for me to start and finish something within a short span of time, I even surprised myself! So here it is, made up sans pattern…I just started cutting and piecing…and voila!I love these Hoffman batiks, all Christmas patterns, poinsettias, holly leaves, berries, and such yummy deep colors! Would you like a runner like this for yourself? Or like to make one for a gift? Well, today is your lucky day!
No, I’m not giving this one away, it’s already earmarked as a gift for someone on my list, but…I wrote up a pattern for this runner and I am giving IT away as my holiday thank you to all the wonderful crafters I have met in the blogosphere who inspire me and motivate me every time I log in!
So, without further adieu, I will send anyone who asks in the comments, or emails me for the pattern, a PDF pattern to make my Jolly Holly Table Runner. **Please be sure you leave me an email to reach you!

Enjoy!………and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!

P.S. I’d love it if you posted about my free gift pattern on your blog and directed more quilters my way, the more I can give away, the merrier!!!!!
