Gather your goodies…….

Like the heading says…Gather your goodies….
Like ribbons, lace, ricrac, your favourite buttons, beads, threads and anything that you have got saved but haven't found the right place to sew them on to yet.
Plus of course your choice of background fabric and a Honey Bun Roll of your choice as well.
You can use any fabric you like but I will be using a Honey Bun Roll of Nostalgia.
It’s an oldie but I love it!
The background fabric I am going to use is a light pale fawn colour that matches in with the Nostalgia colours. Of course you can use any colour you like.
What are we collecting all these goodies for you ask?

A new BOM is in the making!
It’s called
“Out Of The Box –
Dawn of ‘As Sweet As Cinnamon’ and I are going to give you all a free BOM off our blogs but before you get too excited it’s not until January  2011. 
The first blocks will be on January 5th 2011 and there after on the 1st of each month.
We will run this for 9 months and then of course the finale will be the layout of all the blocks.
We have to sew it up yet but our plan is to have 4 stitcheries into one block each per month for you.
So really that’s 8 stitchery blocks
for you to use in your
‘Out Of The Box - BOM’ 
each month.
We are very excited about this as for a while now we have been wanting to use our saved embellishments and we know you have some saved also.
What we have done so far is already looking fabulous!
Here’s a sneak peek for you all….
Lots of bordered blocks….MMmm yumm!
There are 9 blocks all up…….
So get your goodies ready and be prepared to join Dawn and I on January 5th 2011 for our
‘Out Of The Box - BOM’
Dawn is going to set up a Flickr so everyone can share their monthly stitcheries ….isn't that a great idea? I think so because I don't know how to set it up *grins* and also it’s a great way to see everyone's blocks and that is always good. Because, I don’t know about you but I love seeing what everyone does.
Here is a button that you can put on your blog to let everyone know about our BOM
Out Of The Box BOM 2011
Just right click and copy to your computer and then load it up onto your side bar of your blog with the link back to either mine or Dawn’s blog. We are going to have lots of fun with this BOM *big smile*
Hugs to all………..Vicki

What! A home for all those little button, and trims that I have laying all over my sewing room. Is this a secret mission to get it cleaned up for me????? You know, I hear that Santa works in mysterious ways! But I like it that's for sure!

What a lovely idea. I haven't finished my last stitchery BOM from a couple of year ago but I think it's time for a new one - LOL - especially as this has embellishments.
