Making A List...

It's time to start working on my Christmas sewing list. It's not as extensive as it was last year, so I should have an easy coast to get my projects done by my self-imposed December 13th deadline.

Chenille bedspreads (cutters), which will become something warm and sweet. One might even appear in my Etsy shop if I have time after all of my own projects have been wrapped.
Gorgeous blues with an ocean theme to become a cozy quilt for a special young person in our lives. It won't be too large, and I'll machine quilt it myself.

Now that the queen size Lavender Dreams quilt has been completed, I'm confident that finishing the rest of my projects on time will be easy peasy. Care to follow this year's journey?

Love the colors of the chenille bedspread. I can imagine how gorgeour will be your handmade! Enjoy your weekend, Clara.

Sorry! ..... gorgeous, not gorgeour!

Donna, those chenille spreads are gorgeous! I'm sure the ocean quilt will be beautiful when it is done too!

Hi Donna,
Thought I would stop by and say hello and wish you lovely holidays.

I am in love with old chenille bedspreads and the color in your are so pretty.

You create and make some of the most beautiful pieces I've ever seen.

Don't work too hard making that deadline.

hugs

Wow, you are good giving yourself a deadline and everything. I really need to organize my gift list, although I'm giving at least half home made gifts, I should make sure I've covered everyone!

I'm loving that chenille! I'm such a sucker for pretty chenille.

I can only dream about being as organized and disciplined as you :) My deadlines seem to come and go without much to show for it.
Can't wait to see how that fabric is transformed.

Eager to see your completed lovelies! I am thinking you could definitely teach me a thing or two about time management. You truly amaze! Have a wonderful weekend!

Donna, you are so organized and efficient! I'm eager to see what you make with the chenille bedspreads. I recently purchased some vintage ornaments made from chenille bedspreads. They are precious and are going to be a gift to my sister who is a grandmother to little ones. ~ Sarah
