Why Christmas in July?

SummerSantaI know that crafters MUST have coined the phrase Christmas in July. We all know that if you plan to make gifts or if you are on the craft fair circuit, you need to start early enough to get everything done for the holiday season. So how early is too early? I don’t think there is such a thing. In the summer we should concentrate on doing fall and winter items and in the winter we should start with our summer projects. At least that makes the most sense. So why do I seem to have a problem getting into the “Holiday Spirit” with things at this time of the year? I want to work on fun summer things when it’s summer outside and warm and snuggley things in the winter months, is their something wrong with that? Well yes there can be a problem with that way of thinking, I actually have the nerve to wonder why I don’t have enough time to get all my holiday gifts done.

Christmas in July is a good rule to adopt when you are talking about hand crafted items and patterns as well. If you are designing for the seasons, you will want to make sure the people who use your patterns have enough time to finish their projects before the occasion your pattern is intended for as well. With that being said, I of course (in my fashion) am working on a pattern for an adorable baby beach ball summer hat. Should have it ready to go in the next week or two… just in time for those who want to start their winter projects. (As I roll my eyes at myself)
