I'm on my way, but I've got a list (and just like myself, I keep adding to it).
At least I'll have a few decorations though. :)
There was a package waiting for me when I got home from subbing on Friday (Steiger was with Daddy in the harvester)... Kendra spoiled me in the All About Christmas Swap.
She sent four stockings (she was planning ahead with me, in hopes that the fourth will be in use for next Christmas), some kid friendly ornaments (thank you!), a super cute pillow that will match my Christmas Bee quilt PERFECTLY, a book on decorating (she's been reading my blog and knows I need all the help I can get!) and some cute fabric pieces. Thank you Kendra! (I got to know Kendra through flickrland... I love that place). :)
Carol (aka mamacjt ... aka Doll Quilt Queen) was my partner. Here's what I sent her.
I really wanted to keep this pillow for myself (especially now that it would go so well with the one Kendra sent) ;)
The little ornament wall hanging was a leftover from this. I had made a couple of the blocks from jaybirds' hexagon quilt along, but knew the rest were not going to happen this year. So I used them in this little wall hanging, and loved how it turned out.
I mentioned at the top we have 60 sewing days until Christmas. Here's what's on my sewing table.
Reworking my tree-skirt design for my sister-in-law (and myself)...
And my goal is to not buy any presents this year, but to just make the gifts I've purchased fabric for over the months (with specific recipients in mind)...
You might notice those above projects aren't necessarily my first choice in fabrics...
so I've got a few to finish up for myself too (as soon as we get that new machine -- crossing fingers!)
One from a long time ago to finish:
And a couple more...
(Patterns and/or tutorials coming soon for these last two)
Last but not least --
I've got 5 days to finish Steiger's Halloween costume, and this little custom quilt needs to be finished and sent on to its tiny owner!
Back to sewing for me!
