Making 3 twin size quilts for my DGN & GNephew 1 will be pink princes's, and the other purple princess and the 3rd John Deere.
I am also going to make 2 twin quilts for my niece in a western pattern who is an endurance rider and she has a ride coming up in March. Along with that I will be making a table topper called "Ants on the march" to go in her picnic basket. That should take into April.

First off, need to change this Christmas tree avatar. lol
1. Make a quilt out of my collection of Crown Royal bags.
2. A Christmas project each month.
3. Make 2 quilts that I have had kits for several years. One is a snowman quilt, the other blue,yellow,green precut squares.
That's a good start, should keep me busy for a while!

I've 2 blocks to finish piecing for my fireworks quilt entry for August. Finish that up and figure out how I'm going to fmq it.
Then there's blocks to sew together, which I pieced last winter, for one side of my duvet cover. Make the other side and make the cover so we can use it.
I bought fabric to make a tree skirt for next Christmas, so make that. It's French Braid, so need to learn how to do that.
Then I've bought fabric for at least 4 bags.
I've also bought yarn for 2 shawls. Real easy knit pattern, I should be able to make one in a weekend.
I really should tackle some of that OBW fabric I've bought.
Oh there's more, but that's all that has specific plans right now.

1. Finish UFO's I have too many to think about, but will try.
2. Finish the wedding quilt I have in works for a co-workers daughter that is getting married in April or May.
3. Make Hanukah placemats and runners for the Cafe Salome event in the fall. They have a craft booth available. My son-in-law thinks I can make a fortune, as you can't buy anything like I make.
4. Finish up birthday gifts for one of my daughters' October birthday. She like to receive placemats, table runners, and other goodies. She doesn't sew. The down side of a mom that does. She doesn't have to.
5. Stop buying fabric, I have way too much in my studio. I must use some of it up. Running out of room.

So, I am not the only one thinking about Christmas 2011. I want to go thru patterns and projects that I haave donwloaded thru the year and actually do some of them. Try making another quilt.More table runners for gifts. Make some outfits for new GS. Emb. jacket back for another GS b'day. Try to resolve not to bite off more than I can chew. Focus on smaller items/projects. Try crumb method....and on and on. And Oh, yes..organize stash ...again.

Mommamac: Do you have a pattern for the Kindle covers? I got one from our daughter for Christmas and know I need one but haven't seen anything to give me inspiration/ideas. Are you just doing a padded envelope cover or do you do something different? Thanks for any info you can share.
