    I'm in the middle of a "bigger" project (my first bargello) and already thinking steps ahead (as usual!). I think I need to work on some smaller projects for a while!.................

    Does anyone know of a pattern for an advent calendar? A kit might also work. I'm thinking something not too religious but more fun for kids. Trying to spice up our house this Christmas season for my daughter, who will be 3 by then and has slept with her stuffed animal Santa every night since last Christmas.... Thanks!

    I thnk I would go for a kit if you want it to be relaxing and not too difficult. You wouldn't have to find all the different fabrics needed. Depends on the cost, I guess.

    If you go to the search section and put in just the word advent, the second listing is one by Shadow Dancer. I LOVE it.

    Thanks everyone! We have some quilt shops "around here" but not so local, but there is one near my in-laws maybe I can check out. One of the negatives of living in a bigger city (Cleveland) is that the quilt shops around here are quite a distance out of the city...either in the Akron area or east of here in Amish country.

    And, I LOVE the calendar by Shadow Dancer! I will check that out!

    Thanks, everyone!

    I was just looking at Fabric.com they have about a dozen Avent Calendar panels some religiou some not. One is actually 1 shadowdancer made last year it is Dickens, do a search Advent. They cost about $5 some were less. If you are a first time customer shipping is around $3 I don't know the code but you come google coupon codes fabric.com.
