Actually I just finished a the twister Christmas tree quilt - made it throw size - and gave it to my SIL for her birthday in June. Now I am re-quilting a Christmas patchwork quilt that I made for my eldest daughter over 20 years ago. (It was very tempting to throw it away and start over because there were so many things I don't like about it now - but she loves it. It was tied and the batting was barely there so she wanted me to put in new batting and instead of tying it, I am quilting it. Not doing anything fancy - the 1/4 inch next to the ditch.) That will be it for Christmas - but knowing me, I will be a wild bug in November and want to push out something. :-)

I have some fabrics bought and different ideas but nothing started yet. Fabric for pj pants a couple people, pjs for grandsons, vest for son, he likes to dress nicely, and a table runner for daughter. I think that's all that especially for Christmas. Maybe I should start a list so nothing gets

I gave my daughter and son-in-law a quilt when they moved to CA July 1st. Now to keep things even I will make (4) lap quilts for my son's and their wives quilt for Christmas. One is almost finished as I'm quilting it now. Plus I have fall craft shows to sew for. There simply isn't enough time in my days....LOL

I saw some free patterns for Christmas trees that are darling. Need to go through my jelly rolls and see if they will work on these patterns. I have tons of Christmas fabric to use up !
