A Candy Cane for Christmas

TESTING  (I sent this earlier but it didn’t appear to go through the internet, so I’m trying again!)

Wishing you a joyful holiday!  My sweet gift to everyone is “Peppermint Pinwheel Twist,” on sale for just $1.50 instead of $5 through December 31, 2018.  Made in red and white, it’s a perfect peppermint Christmas throw, but try it in team/school colors for another look.

(My prize-winning sock monkey (from a kit–not my design) is loving this bright throw.)

SEW NOTE:  To make a biased binding, just strip-piece the two colors into a large block and cut the binding lengths on the diagonal.  It just takes a little extra time.  When binding a curved border, ease on the inside and stretch on the outside, which is why you need bias!  This pattern is relatively easy and quick.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Many of us are tired from rushing to prepare for Christmas, but now that we’ve reached that goal, another goal can be to spend more time at home this winter and  pick up some new projects to enjoy….or even start making gifts for next year.  That’s my plan!  PIECEFUL TRANQUIL’ TY to you all.
