Actually it's past time to be working on Christmas gifts, but at least I do have a start. After putting together a couple of drawstring backpacks for charity with my quilt guild, I decided making them for gifts was a great idea.
When I showed the bags, not only the children, but the adults said they wanted one. I already had 2 stacks of fabrics put aside just for making bags.
Here is what I have cut and prepared so far, mostly working on cutting fabrics that will make bags for the guys.
Quilt guild put out the challenge kits. They are encouraging us to do paper pieced stars. I chose one from a book I own and just to remind myself of how to do paperpiecing, I made one of the 16 pieces I need to make the wall hanging that I want to make.
Then, I started working on the toothbrush rug made of nothing but selvage. I probably will only work on this at the bowling alley while we bowl on our league, at least for now. I plan to enter it in the fair next year, so I have until August to finish it.
I did finish all of the sets of microwave hotpads that I was working on, but haven't gotten any of them listed in my etsy shop yet.
My days are so full and I sure don't see that ending any time soon at all. All I can do is do what I can each day and be happy about it.
