Yeah Gwennie I am so glad you joined. (Go put a bug in your mom's ear and get her to join too. winking )

Hi Kany!!!! I am so glad you are still with us and are joining again this year.  hug08

Memaw, it depends on your definition. Some people think any and all Christmas sweaters are ugly. Some people like Christmas sweaters. I think "gaudy" might be a better term. It is a decorated sweater. You can applique on designs, you can stitch on designs, you can add fancy Christmas trims and ribbons. It's a do what ever you want to do project. The only hard and fast rule of course is good quality. If you prefer to do pretty, do it. Just make it fun and keep it in good taste.

I will try to send out the pattern by the end of the week. Everyone should have plenty of time to get theirs done and in the mail by the end of November, earlier for over seas.

If you can't do overseas shipping please let me know ASAP. I am not closing the sign up just yet, want to make sure everyone has a chance to join.

No I got a bit behind. Was hoping a few more folks would join up. I'll start checking my emails though to make sure I have everyone's address and then I guess we will cut off signups at the end of the week and I will get everyone their pattern and name.

I was dawdling around over a cuppa and found some pics to inspire, some are ugly sweaters to be sure and some are cute.







This looks like Goldie





Ok so this guy is pretty cute! Don't forget, we can have fun decorating our sweaters, beads, buttons, bling, tinsel threads, glitter - how am I ever going to decide what to do with mine? Shocked

This Santa is excited to be wearing his ugly sweater





Hey, come to think of it, Id wear some of these lol! lol!

Just double checking....is there anyone who can NOT send over seas this year? I had one response but want to make sure there aren't others.
Thanks

Sign up is closed. Thanks to all who are playing this year. I hope those of you who are busy will have a lighter load next year and will be able to join in.

Y'all bear with me please. This bronchitis is wearing me out. I will get everything typed up in emails this weekend and sent out if its the last thing I do. Keep an eye on your pm's and emails if you can in case it turns out I am missing an address so you can get back to me ASAP. Thanks for being understanding.

Oh and the pattern is applique. I searched for a paper pieced one for those who like that but the only one I found is for sale only, not a freebie. But it is a simple shape and I know everyone can easily applique this.
