Getting Started...

Last night, I decided that it was time
to give some serious thought
to what I would be making
for Christmas gift-giving.
Yeah, about time, hey?

In the past, I have made
zippered pouches,
tote bags,
plastic bag holders,
floor pillows,
table toppers,
tree ornaments,
coin purses,
kleenex cozies,
pillow covers,
and aprons.

I had a little difficulty
coming up with some new ideas.
But, I think I made some good choices
in what to make for each person on my list.

This morning, I started pulling fabrics.
(An easy job now that my  stash is organized.)

This is not all of the fabrics I'll need...
but certainly enough to get me started.
Fabrics for several different gifts I'll be making.

 Tag was his usual supportive self...

I would love to hear
what you are making this year.

 "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.". Jeremiah 29:11

Will be fun to see what you came up with! I am hooking a few small mats/rugs and have plans for one or two cross stitch items. Now if they get done...that's a whole different story :-)

I'm so slow, it's almost too late for hand made Christmas gifts. But, I'm putting together baskets of food, cider, supplemental goodies and a few store bought things to round out the baskets.
Your 9 patch quilt is so pretty; it *is* a 9 patch...?

I think it is so nice that you are thinking of Christmas. I have no clue Jacque. I need to turn my attention to it but as of yet, not a lot of planning going on about Christmas. I am looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

I always have good intentions, does that count?
