The Elves Will Be Busy...

Thanks to Karen at The Graphics Fairy for this beautiful image!
I've made my "official" (kinda/sorta) list of projects to be finished in time for Christmas shipping and gift giving. These are the projects that will ship to special places across the country, into the homes of loved ones...sons and daughters-in-love, grandchildren, parents, nieces and nephews and a few others. My goal is to have everything completed as close as possible to December 15th so that I can relax the rest of the Christmas season.

So, my friends, I'm sharing this list with you:
  1. Four beaded scarves in sumptuous and decadent yarns
  2. Three sets of Christmas Eve pajamas (an annual tradition for our grandchildren)
  3. One Ladies Tote with lots of pockets and compartments
  4. One Kitchen Ensemble (Sorry I can't give you more detail here. Can't give too much away.)
  5. A Set of Handcrafted Ornaments
  6. One Lap Quilt
  7. Custom Gift Bags in pretty fabrics
  8. One Embroidered Pillow
  9. Four Apple Photo Books (all the same - another annual tradition)
  10. Two Hat and Mitten Sets sewn in cozy warm polar fleece
So, now I'll be accountable to you. (Do you think I can do it?) I'll post photos of my projects as I finish them so you can keep me honest. Any good wishes you can send my way (you know, "You can do it, Dee!") will be greatly appreciated as I try to stay on schedule.

One scarf (the pretty pink beaded one I posted the day after Thanksgiving) was finished last night. One down...four to go! I'm telling you - this year, the elves will be busy!

Oh Donna, I have no doubt that you can do it!! You are amazing, and quite fast ant everything. I am so good at starting, my problem is getting them wrapped and out the door. My daughter already had her cards done, I am so impressed. I have a list but it never ends, maybe I should take your example and have it set and make a time line!
Guess I better go, there a little white bear sitting here naked!!!! He needs some clothes or something. Could be a she if I make a dress, he he... no more information!
Hugs,

The list sounds daunting, but knowing you as I have come to over the months I've read your blog, I have No Doubt that you will finish each project to perfection! You are an amazing crafter who I admire for the ability to get things done quickly. I will look forward to seeing your projects as you share them. The pink scarf looked beautiful. Have a nice Sunday!

You've bitten off more than I have. I only promised a trellis tree. And I'm not exactly moving mountains with that yet. Oh yes, please post the pictures as you go!

We crafters/sewers always seem to have one of these lists this time of year. I love the day after christmas most because that means I don't have to be rushing to do anything (cause it should already be done!)
