We have a hose-pipe ban due any minute because of the heat and there are Christmas cards on sale in our town centre!
I know we all buy presents when we see them, heck I started knitting crocheting  and making tapestries just after the new year, but gosh, is it really necessary to have cards on sale? Those of us trying to save money buy them in the January sales anyway... One year I got my crackers so early, I forgot where I'd stashed them by Christmas.

These are the ones I use Rose: No joining fee, just your e-mail... I have one I keep just for the internet shoppers and forums, but I never get spammed so these sites are quite safe.

freepatterns.com
knittingpatterncentral.com... often has links to crotchet
lionbrandyarn.com

I belong to the phoenix forum. Its a very friendly UK based forum with all the knitting sewing crotchet  topics you could wish for and loads of links on the free patterns thread the address is:www.knittingforums.org.uk

Another one I use for all types of craft work, especially getting ideas is www.craftbits.com and well worth a visti. Feel free to PM me if any of the links don't work. They didn't have pocket calculators when I was in school, let alone computers.

I have just come back from the Blue Mountains in NSW where Christmas in July is a big tourist attraction / celebration. All the tourist gift shops there sell Christmas decorations etc for the Yulefest season now. I picked up some nice ceramic Christmas sweet / biscuit containers today from one of the shops.
