    Okay, I'm anal. I did start all my Christmas gifts in July and had them done by the end of October. Please don't throw things at me LOL!! I don't understand why people are still working on gifts today--Christmas is always December 25--every year--why stress? I really think some people love to "complain" oh I have to finish "x" amount by tomorrow. No you wouldn't if you'd have started earlier. Please don't get mad at me!! Like I said, I'm really anal and have to have things done in plenty of time. I'm also really slow quilting so it takes me longer than a day.
    Peace & joy everyone!!

    Well, I started this year in July and I was finished about a month ago. I have always been one who worked best under pressure, but decided I'd try it differently this year. I highly recommend it. What a difference it made for me.

    I don't have many people to give gifts to (sons, DH, two sisters) so have been just mostly making Xmas stuff for my new house, now my sister just informs me she wants a quilted cover for her Quisinart stand mixer and a juicer-I spent most of the afternoon yesterday (power outage all morning!) trying to draft a pattern for it (I have the same mixer) and figuring how to make it! Guess where I'll be until Xmas eve???? Yes, I will start early next year-or maybe just keep on making stuff since I have all the xmas fabs already out now!!

    I am definately starting earlier in 2011 than I did this year, although I made many of my gifts this Christmas and I have to say that it feels so good {to me} to give a special someone something that I created just for them! Just have to get started earlier next year! :mrgreen:

    Great idea, I think I work better under pressure. I made my own cards and some of my Christmas gifts. I handmade a gift for each of the people that I work with (seven). I just finished them this morning. When we went on a trip last Spring, I took all my cardmaking supplies and had a grand old time making cards while DH and DS were out surfing.
