Charmed, I'm sure

The Christmas cards are made and we got the tree up yesterday, but that's about it Christmas-wise. I'm hoping to hit the loft today and see what's up there that I still want to put in my house. Am I the only one who sorts through the Christmas decorations each year and goes "What was I thinking?"? At least this is an excuse for new stuff...

In August I posted about the Holly Jolly charm squares I fell in love with and just had to have. I'd never bought charm squares before and now know why. What on earth do you do with 37 different 5" squares? While I was still pondering a solution 3 months later, the amazing Monica came up with one.
And here it is...

the Jingle Jolly runner.
It matches the family room curtains just perfectly!

Pin It!

It does indeed match perfectly and I love the whole thing. The colors are a glorious celebration of this season and life in general. Makes me happy just looking at your photos.

That's too funny about the curtains! I love the designs and the colors. I now have 4 rooms in my house that sport Ikea curtains.

LOVE your tablerunner. I went over and printed out the pattern. Like I have time for that right now but it sure would be fun.

I love your table-runner. I have two packages of charm squares (different ones) and this is really a wonderful idea to use them! (I saw those curtains on Kathy’s blog today, funny...!)

I have totes of Christmas stuff that I have looked at this year and thought, really do I need to put that up or why do I keep this. Needless to say, a lot of the stuff has not been put up because I don't care for it anymore or it is not how I am envisioning Christmas this year. The jolly jingle runner is very nice.

It does match perfectly! Every so often I think, oh that charm pack looks lovely I should buy it. Then I think about reality & realize I wouldn't have any idea what to make with any of it:)

I'm definitely adding that table runner on my list of things to make. Thanks so much for sharing it and the link.

The runner looks great. I love the Holly Jolly fabric. I used it to make all the Christmas stuff for my Etsy shop. It is just so cheerful!

Oh man, I love 5 inch squares. I have made so many projects this year with them, and I love the challenge.

Your jingle jolly runner is fantastic!

Wow! I love the Jingle Jolly runner. The bright fabrics are awesome and the piecing almost makes it look 3D.
