I am so thrilled to be participating in WIP Wednesday on it's one year anniversary! It has been such a pleasure keeping up with everyone this past year! Congrats Lee, you've come a long way baby!!
It is this time of year that I start getting in panic mode about Christmas. I've decided this year not to do it! That's it, you heard it here...not going to do it.
I've decided to not pressure myself about sewing Christmas presents this year. The people in my life will be just as happy with something from a store as with a homemade gift.
I am however, hoping to sew up a whole bunch of stuff to celebrate the season for MY family. Stockings, a tree skirt, pillows and maybe even finish my first Christmas quilt.
So for now all of my other WIPS, with the exception of my Kaleidoscope (I'm determined to finish that before the end of the year) and at least one stocking for Stockings for Kids, are going to be set aside.
This stack of lovely fabrics, mostly from Michael Miller's Funky Christmas, will be used to make a tree skirt. I wanted to do this last year and it didn't work out, so hopefully I'll have time this year.
My favorite print from Funky Christmas. I think it will make the perfect stocking for little Graham.
Lastly, here are the Fruitcake blocks. I started this earlier this year and then set it aside for more pressing projects. It's just a simple framed square block made from a jelly roll and a charm pack, should be easy enough to complete! I think Hurst will love this! Lately, he is obsessed with snowmen!
Sorry to be in Christmas mode already, but it is the most wonderful time of the year! I'm already so excited for it to get here. I started teaching Hurst how to sing Jingle Bells yesterday and he's almost got it!
To see what others in blogland are doing to keep themselves busy, head over to Lee's.
