    Will you really plan that far ahead?
    I tend to get lots done when under pressure.

    I keep telling myself to start right after the first of the year, but it never works out that way! My DD's birthday was Nov 2 and I've been putting a box of goodies together for her. Besides notions and such, I made her reverable fall/Christmas tablerunner. Have I even sent it to her? Of course not! I still have plans to make coasters, mug rugs, placemats, etc. Do I have them made yet? NO......
    Oh...She did recently get a package of Fat Quarters but I had it sent directly from the internet site! I'm sooo bad!

    Nor have I finished the Christmas Quilts I was going to give, and somehow, don't see that happening this Christmas!

    Every year about this time, I think... next year I'm going to make a quilt for everyone in my family for their birthdays, but my mom's birthday is January 27th... I'll never get it done in time. so there goes the whole plan. tee hee

    That's a great idea.

    My problem is I always think of new things to make at the last minute!

    I did the same and it was still a stretch to get it all done. Maybe gift cards next year is the better plan.

    I got some sale Christmas fabric, so plan on starting shortly after the first of the year. That way I can make one a month, and I'll be done by October. I make to many mistakes when I'm under stress.

    Starting right away in January sounds reasonable...

    However, I did that last year and still don't have Christmas things from last year done. :(

    Best part is I CAN TRY AGAIN to get them done for next Christmas! :) :)
