STBS Christmas Caroling Row Along and Give Away

Christmas Caroling RAL 2017 photo CCLogo-2-small-450x373_zps857lafcy.jpg

Welcome back to the Christmas Caroling Row Along! This is my second row.
You can find my first row HERE if you missed it.

Family traditions, do you have them? 
We always have fish on Christmas Eve, festa dei sette pesci or feast of the seven fishes, and cannoli’s for desert on Christmas day. Now I’m not talking any ol’ cannoli, I’m talking about a cannoli from Termini Bro in Philadelphia. Anybody know what I mean? My mouth is watering…

cannoli
This image is not a Termini Bro Cannoli

 

Can you guess the song I picked this time?
It’s not as popular so you have to REALLY know your songs.

dominick row

Did you guess Dominick the Donkey?
If you did you’re a holiday song super star!
If you’ve never heard it you can listen
HERE ~ warning you’ll be humming it all day

Finished row size is  12” x 30”

Download the FREE row from my Craftsy shop HERE.

 Dominick the Donkey - FunThreads Designs
Sorry I didn’t get the binding on…

---------------------------

Background fabric for this row is Northcott’s The Magic of Christmas collection,
sku# 21701-44

A huge THANK YOU to Northcott for generously providing all the designers in this hop, and there are a lot of us, with their row fabrics. Be sure to thank all our sponsors for making fun events like this possible for you.

Helpful Tips

The pattern includes placement guides for the donkey and Santa. I suggest sliding it under an applique pressing sheet like I previously demonstrated with the elves. That way you can pre-fuse your donkey and Santa into one unit which makes placing them on the block much easier.

If you made something from one of my rows I’d love to see and share it on my blog. We all hope you’ve enjoyed this year’s hop!!

Two rows! You're a Row Along Rock Star! Thanks so much for the time and effort you put into this, and for coming up with such a cute row, again.

Robin Klein said...

Thank you for this row and really making me go back to early elementary school when we lived near Italian families. Her father would always sing it to us. And we tease "is he suppose to be Dean Martin or Frankie?". He would pretend to spank us into the kitchen where her mother or Nona had special cookies waiting. Had me grinning all the way.

After rereading everything my stomach is aching for a real Philly Cannock from the Southside. They sell them here in Florida but nothing is the same as the ones you grew up on...

Thank you so much for the pattern and the song! And my mouth is watering for the cannoli. I grew up in Jersey and visited my grandmother in Philly all the time. I have since moved to Colorado and I truly miss the foods I could get back east. Anyway, thanks again.

Bev said...

I loved listening to the little song! I will have to play that one of my grandkids come over and I bet they loved it too. Thank you for a good smile this evening.

Marian said...

I definitely miss the cannolis in Italy... I hadn't heard the song until today, but I don't necessarily think you need to hear the song to fall in love with this absolutely adorably cute pattern. That donkey just makes you want to smile and it's infectious.

You're always a joy to have to participate in the row along and I am so happy you came along for the ride again this year. Hope we see more of you in the years to come.
