Christmas Through the Year Link Up

Spring is here and it's been so nice. I hope you all didn't get hit with snow and bad weather. I have a question, maybe someone can explain it to me. I've been hearing that Google Reader is going away in July, now, is that the same as Google Friend Connect? The one where a majority of us use to follow a blog? I read everyone's blog on my dashboard so I am really confused.

 Ok, it's time for some fun. Lets see what you made and link up your Christmas projects.

I have been playing with my embroidery machine. This is the initial S. My kids thought it was an L but I told them it's a fancy S. I got the embroidery going in the wrong direction so I made do with the pouch's opening on the short side. Oh well, it will still work. I did some more monogramming and it's been sew much fun! I wish I could sit and play with my embroidery machine more often.

Now it's your turn to link up. If you don't have a blog, e-mail me your pictures and I will post it here. 
Please place a direct link to your post so we can go check it out.
Go and check out each other's projects and leave some love :-)

Linking up to: Finish It Up Friday

I have been spending little time on Christmas things so far this year but I have been spending way too much time on the computer. Google friend connect is not going. It is different from google reader. Apparently no blogs will be harmed when google reader goes. We will still have our dashboard list and there are other readers out there. I am sure you will see a lot more about this as we get closer to July.

Kim your dashboard will remain the same, so don't worry... that's how i have always read my blog updates too.
i posted about my concerns regarding all this just during the week, you can read my post here, there is some great info in the Comments:
You will be fine!

Thank you for hosting this monthly link up. It always makes me glad to know I'm not the only one thinking of Christmas in the spring time!

Thanks for posting about your little embroidery machine project. Mine hasn't been used for a while, but I am always fascinated by it when I finally stitch something.

Question: When you say "dashboard", do you mean your "Blog's Homepage"? I used Google Reader so I switched to Bloglovin which is quite easy. Even if a blog isn't linked into Bloglovin, I still insert their URL into Bloglovin and follow them. No big deal.

That is a fun, fancy monogrammed "S" on your pouch. I LOVE that feature in my embroidery software.

Thanks, Kim, for hosting this year-long CTTY event. I have always done a Christmas Box through the year - always - so this is an easy monthly commitment for me.

Pretty initial pouch, I hope you find more time to play with embroidery, your work is beautiful. Thanks for hosting - it keeps me motivated to make Christmas gifts.

A slow month for me, but I have such a long list before Christmas. Time to get serious in April!

Sandie @ crazy'boutquilts said...

I had really good intentions of getting more done~ sigh. I can't believe it is the end of the month already! Happy Easter!

I've never made a little pouch. Zipper's scare me. LOL. A fear of zippers - is there a name for that? Still, I love your idea of adding an embroidered monogram. I too would like to spend more time playing with the embroidery capabilities on my machine. There are so many fun designs.

UGH.....the first time in two years that I haven't made a Xmas giftie. Next month I will double up. Hope your Easter was wonderful.
