Ho Ho Ho Blog Hop Day 7

       You could say I'm a basket case. I sure feel that way some days! 
                                                            :-)

      These baskets are going to be the greatest, for the treats I share at Christmas.
                   


 
That little drawstring pouch stitched into the basket,  gives you room for loads of goodies!  I am sure hoping that the pasta jar, decorated up to hold dipped pretzel rods, that we saw  yesterday over at:

http://madebymeinred.blogspot.ca/2013/08/ho-ho-ho-blog-hop.html

will fit under the handle. I just LOVED it!!! 

 
This pattern is from The Wooden Bear. The bought the book just for these adorable baskets.
(Can't you just see them in Halloween fabrics filled with goodies too)!

 
But are so many cute things in the book.
The little tote bags in the top left hand corner can be made into 3 different things. The tote, a pillow and best yet a cozy for 8"x8" pans with room for the raised lids. Ohhh a pan of brownies all decorated up for the holidays. Yum Yum.
This book is just about my favorite holiday stitching book yet!
 

Hard to believe this hop is almost over. We have seen the greatest holiday projects. Best yet, it's early enough that we can still get them done for the season. I love Christmas in July/August hops!

As I start wrapping things up, let see just what my fellow bloggers have created ,as we get down to the last couple of days of this wonderful hop.
My official day to post is tomorrow, so see you then!

  6. These are great. can't wait to see what you have for your official outing. I now need to find some time to go back and revisit all of the blogs. I never saw the jar with the pretzels and I would have said I hit everybody so far. Well at least I know the revisits will be wonderful.
