    Riversong's post (http://www.quiltingboard.com/posts/list/22772.page) got me to thinking about that rush every Christmas season to get quilted gifts done. Every year I promise I'll get started earlier; every year I make the same promise for next year :oops:

    This year I'm really gonna stick my neck out and list here the Christmas sewing I want to get done. I'll come back and update my progress around the same time each month. Names aren't listed to protect me from the recipients' prying eyes:wink:

    2 Tree Skirts
    1 Poinsettia Quilt quilted
    1 Poinsettia Quilt pieced and quilted
    1 Undetermined pattern quilt pieced and quilted
    8 ornament sets (12 ornaments each)
    4 Wall Hangings
    2 table runner/mats/mug rug sets
    4 quilted charm pack totes

    C'mon and join me with your own list or nag me on! Links to quick-to-finish projects for us procrastinators are more than welcome too! With a list like this, I need all the help I can get :lol:

    Coooo, you are brave, Roben - I don't think I can do that, but I have finished two UFO's this year, am working on a third, and have made 5 quilts for Project Linus, and my Doll Quilt for the swap I signed up for, so I am doing a lot better than I did last year. I wish you well with your endeavours, and shall keep popping back to see how your are doing.

    Wow! You make me tired, just reading your list! I assume you have found the fountain of extra time or something, and wade in it regularly. Good luck with all that. It is great to try to make yourself accountable 0 I am hoping that theory works for me too - I recently told what I wanted to do, and promised to report on progress.

    What you might think of doing is to first make an old
    fashioned square dancing skirt. you know the type, it had
    masses of ruffles in it with miles of glittering zig zag sewed
    on it. You could get colors to match your living room near the tree, or simply use Christmas colors.

    I cut mine to fit a Christmas Tree. I cut it in 2 pieces, hemmed it and put on snaps. Put under the tree, it showed
    up well and drew lots of praise.

    OK, I'll add my list.

    1. Bear Paw quilt -- finish the quilting, bind it and label
    2. Golf quilt -- piece, quilt, bind and label
    3. Jungle wall hanging -- label
    4. Baseball quilt -- label
    5. Sweet pea quilt -- piece, quilt, bind and label
    6. Three undetermined patterns to piece, quilt, bind and label

    Somehow I don't think I'm going to get everything done by Christmas. #3, 5 and 6 can wait till next Christmas since they are all siblings.

    That is sure going to keep you busy. I always have the best of intentions, but get distracted by something else.

    That's my problem, littlehud - distractions! I have a bit on my plate at the moment, but I'm hoping that by having this list and others join me in my efforts the combination will hopefully keep it from being put on the back burner.

    I just can't say no, tho - was talking with my neighbor last night, whose daughter's unit is getting deployed - and have agreed to help with the 'adoption' of their unit (c'mon, who can resist that?!?)

    Counting this week, there is 23 weeks left until Christmas; if I set aside 4 hours a week for Christmas quilting, that's 92 hours! I'm going to try something else this morning - working on them from 7am - 8am, then at 8 getting on with my regular day. We'll see if that makes a dent!

    I have a beauty of a lap quilt pattern to make, all done out of Christmas material, but I think it is something you could use year around if you wanted, once you see it. It is just a beauty.

    So here is my list:
    1. my little beauty lap quilt
    2. A Christmas wall hanging ( have everything but the time to do it)

    No point in adding anymore, I know my limits! Should be interesting!

    Mine I hope to get done:
    1. 2-pillow quilts
    2. 1-baby quilt
    3. 1-quilt made from bandana's - (I am having problems, I need to cut these down to equal sizes, found they aren't all the same size, and I can't find the template material big enough, but I need to see through it so I can make sure I am not cutting the design off, any suggestions would be welcome in what I can use)
    4. 1-baby wall hanging
    (then I have other things I am making but not quilting)
    5. 1-finish the baby blanket cross stitch for new grandbaby due New Years Eve
    6. 1- cross stitch baby pillow to go with the blanket
    7. 1-flannel pair of lounge pants
    8. 1- Needle punch stocking
    9. 1- Cross stitch stocking
    10. 1- baby nursing cover
    11. As many baby bibs as I can make, need to find a simple but quilt looking pattern for these, don't have one.

    Heaven knows if I can find the time to do these, but I do have good intentions.

    Catjo - I would love the pattern for the baby nursing cover !!! I saw it recently, but can't remember where. I was searching online yesterday but didn't find it yet.
    Thanks.

    It is real easy to make and if I recall it only took me 1/2 hour to make. I picked up the D rings at WalMart.
    This site also has other baby items you can make too.
    Have a great day!
