12 Days of Christmas in July Blog Hop

July 14th-July 25th there is a very fun Christmas blog hop happening. When Sarah @ Confessions Of A Fabric Addict asked if anyone would like to participate I jumped at the chance. I love decorating and making things to display for the Holidays!

Today is my day to give you an idea for Christmas, maybe it is a present for yourself or a gift for someone else. But it sure is a happy project, how could you not fall in love with this snowman runner!  It's no secret I love to decorate with snowmen for Christmas, but you can keep him out all winter too, what a versatile project.  And I will have the pattern for sale in my Craftsy shop soon.
It is 18 1/2" x 41 1/2", with a little piecing and a little applique.

Edited to say---The pattern is now up in my Craftsy Shop!

And for a little more Christmas inspiration, here are a few of my other decorating ideas.

You can click on each picture for a larger view.

I am sharing the day with fellow blogger Jennifer @ inquiringquilter, so be sure to check out what she has for you also.  You might also want to check out Sarah's each day too as she is having a quilt along that doesn't require a lot of time but turns out oh so cute!
