    We took a two week vacation at the end of June, so I lost 12 days in July to work on my annual Christmas in July project. I did finish up a couple of sets of quickie table runner and matching candle mats for my step-daughters. I found this free pattern while web surfing late one night last week, I couldn't resist starting it too. I have all of the blocks ready to join together, the trees are dimensional, they are folded and the only seams are in the center of the block and the seam that joins the trunk section to the tree. The pinwheels are actually prairie points, so they are dimensional also. It's been so much fun to make, I'm glad I at least got it started in July!

    I found it on Hancock of Paducahs site, http://www.hancocks-paducah.com/Item--i-M-PS-30260. It says the cost is 1.99, but theres also a button to click for a free download, which is what I did, it worked. Sorry, I just tried the link and it wouldn't work, but go on the Hancocks of Paducah site and search for Moda Jovial Christmas, you should be able to find it that way.
