Playing Chicken...

The elves and I are hard at work in the studio. We're cranking out Christmas gifts, so we thought we'd take a break to share a completed project.
I've finished a set of six two-sided napkins and six coordinating placemats. The napkins feature roosters on one side, and chicks on the other. They measure 18" square and are made from 100% cotton.
I didn't choose matching placemats so that they can be used separately with other napkins. They have a light fabric on one side, and I used the same fabric on the back that is on the binding for two completely different looks.

I have a list of projects that I'll need to finish to ship out by the 15th. This one is taken care of, but I still have other items on my list.

Let's see...
  • 3 pairs of Grammies Jammies
  • a lap quilt
  • small wall quilt
  • a stuffed animal
  • a couple of totes
  • two garment bags
  • mug mats
  • my Blissfull ATC swap card for Dec.
  • ...and a few other items that I'll complete after the 15th and before the 20th. whew!
I may not show you full images of everything, but I promise to show you "peeks" as I finish each gift. Back in the studio today, with more photos tomorrow!

I love the baby chick fabric! Can't wait to see what you're making next, Donna.

Awesome Danna..Where did you get that fabric? I have Chickens and Roosters in my kitchen and fabric like that would make awesome covers for my countertop appliances.
You are going to be a very busy lady...I still have a long list and am hoping to get all my gifts in the mail by Monday..It is getting to close for me to take any time off (except to leave a comment in here though) :)

Well, you sure have a lot of projects to complete, but I bet you are glad to have your mind off a short legged project derailer!

Wow you either are the fastest stitch in Florida or you have elves! Either way I love the fabric choices especially the one with the little yellow chicks, it brought a smile to my face this morning!
Have fun sewing...

Lovely placemats, Donna. I don't want to swap lists with you!- I only have a small wallhanging and the borders on my Xmas quilt to do- the quilt has been a WIP for a few years now, but I did manage to handquilt it this past Winter. :)

These are darling and your work is so perfect. I don't know how you do it all.

Cute placemats and napkins Donna! Gee, I thought I had a lot to do in the next week, but you win! I only have about 8 pairs of fleece jammy pants to make and then I can ship my boxes, everything else is done. I'll be praying for your stamina! :) Karen
