    :!: I was going through old Christmas cards to make tags for gifts and came across one that would make a great wall hanging. It had three rows of three letters each spelling "CHRISTMAS" with a picture for each letter (C=candles; H=holly, etc.) I have patterns for paper-pieced kind of wonky-looking letters that I thought would be great done with fabric for each letter (C=fabric with candles, etc.). I'll have to start collecting fabrics!

    OH, I think this is the way quilt designers start! You may have taken the first step to a new career. Now is the time to buy Christmas fabric, won't be much around by mid year.
