    Due to first my embroidery/main sewing machine breaking down. Then my catching a rotten bug for whole month of December I didn't get any quilts completed. Instead I made my two little granddaughters both purses, and super-princess capes. They went over better than any quilt ever did.
    My goal for Christmas 2012 is to make both granddaughters Christmas quilts for their beds-to be given Dec 1st. And if I do really well might even get my hubby a quilt made in secret for next year. Wish me luck.

    I was busy..for gifts I made a chenille baby quilt, a crayon wrapped caddy, 4 teabag carriers, 6 table runners, 2 coffee cup cozies, a gift card holder and 2 sets of serged napkins and coasters. for myself, I also made a fabric microwave bowl holder, 2 table runners, 2 square table toppers and a set of seat belt covers. And with my new serger I made a bread basket liner and a polyester scarf with rolled hems. I got to try out lots of crafts that were on my to do list. Had a lot of fun and everyone was appreciative.

    I was a very busy Christmas Elf, I made and gave away 30 Microwave steamer bags (some to complete strangers), 10 place mats ( embroidered with my sister's grandchildren's names), 4 quilted children's books and 5 throw sized quilts. I feel good because I helped make Christmas Happy for many people.
    Let every day be the best day of your life!

    I made pillowcases for DGS -- Christmas fabrics (2-Thomas, and a wonky reindeer). I have some things to get started that I menat to make and ran out of time -- we may be stringing out Christmas. I also forgot where I hid something and have not been able to find the matching outfits for the boys. Sigh -- hopefully I find them before they out grow them.

    I made four quilt, had them piled under the tree. Everyone looked and oohed &aahed wondering who was the receiver. In the end I called up three DGD's and let the oldest pick first. They were delighted.

    hI made lots of placemats. I used hand dyed fabric that was some of the first I have done, and made the front out of fabric that I made gel. monoprinting-and embellishing cut up and sewn together. Feed back has been good.

    I made a purse for my mom and a couple of wall hangings. I really intended to do more, but ended up having surgery on Dec 12th. So, maybe I'll finish them up for next year:-)
