All Done!!!

I am all done with sewing Christmas gifts.
I feel very good about everything I made.  
And, I made all gifts except
the 2 gift cards I bought for my grandsons.

I never did get around to making
any hot pads/potholders, though.
I guess I can work on them at my leisure
and give them as gifts throughout the year...
or save them for next Christmas!  

Here are the last of the napkins...

Here is a photo of some of what I made.
When I took this photo, I had already mailed
out some gifts, and was not finished making others. 

Here are the stats:

97 napkins
6 aprons
22 kleenex cozies
1 zippered pouch
1 sweatshirt jacket

All fabric used came from my stash
except for 1.5 yards for napkins
and 1/2 yard for sweatshirt jacket facings.

I used 24 yards of fabric for napkins, 
4 yards for aprons and
mostly scraps for kleenex cozies.
I generated a few more scraps
for myself in the process.

That is a lot of fabric!

And, truth be told...not all of the napkins
are going out as Christmas gifts.
I may have overdone it a bit.
Or not.

I was just so happy sewing
and listening to music
that I made napkins out of any fabric
that I either had no immediate use for,
or just plain thought
would make great napkins!

Truth be told,
there are some sets that
I am going to keep for myself!

How's that!?!

And, what this means...
is that I have the next week
to do whatever I want!
Like, finish one quilt top
and start another!

I need to find a way to baste some quilts...
don't want to move all those flimsies with me.

Thank you, God,
for giving me the ability
(and fabric!) to do this.

You really have made a lot of gifts and wonderful pieces, now time for us to relax and make some things for ourselves;)

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.
