    I've got my list made of who gets what for birthdays, graduations, Christmas and what ever comes along. Will make some lap throws and baby quilts and have them finished before needed. I started my 2013 list about six months ago, as I found the pattern and fabrics cut and started the projects. That is the only way I can stay ahead of everything.

    I generally start in late Jan. I want everything done by August 1 so I can show things in our county fair. Even if they won't be winners, I like to share them with my friends.

    I want to make my fabric pots, as many as 12 or 15. Can do so much with these.
    Kitchen embroidery towels, would like a tall stack of them.
    Ipad envelope sleeves
    Fleece scarves
    pajamas
    Clover pot holders.
    That is just a few of my ideas

    Well I have somethings planned for next year. I made a Christmas tree skirt that turned out very cute. That was for us, and I decided to make three for family next year, with fabric I still have for Christmas. I also bought some snowman flannel on sale and found a flannel sheet set with snowflakes on it on sale. So I have the makings of a flannel quilt that will be sooo cozy this time next year. That will be for my daughter.

    My Christmas sewing for this year got way-layed clear back in summer. I was planning on making lot of my gifts. But, between MIL's mild heart attack and moving her into assisted living and being a soccer grammy. My summer/fall was gone. I have done the bust my B..s before and was not going to do that this year. So did the shopping thing.

    So that means all the things I planned on sewing for this year .... will be my 'new' ideas for next year.

    I need to make quilts for my sons birthdays. One in April, and the other in October. I will be thinking about Christmas gifts while I'm making those quilts though!
