    I have on table runner finished, working on the next, once I get the metallic thread working I should be done with that one pretty quickly. Then I still have 2 more quilts to do. One I am working on now, until I can figure out the metallic issue. THen to find the fabric for the other one and get started.

    Have one quilt done working on another, then have one to quilt, stockings, ornaments, wall hanging, etc. I already feel like I am behind. Time is moving too fast lately.

    I have two quilts to make but I didn't promise them, no one knows I am planning to make them as gifts so if I get done fine if not I already have bought back up gifts. The quilts will become birthday gifts. I made swap ornaments in July so those are done for the ornament exchanges I'm belong to. I finished my Secret Santa gifts thanks to the vendor booths at the last quilt show I went to. I bought fat quarter towers for my donation to the guild's silent auction table. All the guild members have the same projects and patterns I have so making something would be mostly duplicates. Who doesn't want a big stack of fat quarters?
    Got fabric?

    I have finished a quilt top for my brother that needs borders and quilting. I am also making a wall hanging for a girfriend - first time paper piecing. I have one more quilt to begin and finish, along with a few pot holders and mug rugs. I usually only do sewing in my class until I get my sewing room done - whenever that is! It is painted and I am putting in carpeting now, then furniture. Hopefully in the next few weeks I can be ready to sew at home and get some of this stuff done. I have already finished several dishclothes for gifts (knitted). And I thought I was ambitious!

    I am currently quilting the lap quilt I made for my husband last Christmas. How bad am I? I kind of tucked it away until the holidays were over, and it stayed tucked.

    I just finished a table topper for me and have another one cut out, I know how dare I do something for me. I also have two doll quilts done and a few more in the works for a lqs that sponsors a Christmas party for children of the community that would not otherwise have a Christmas. I also want to embroidery a wine themed kitchen towel for a friend. I usually make more Christmas gifts but this year I have not made any as I have found good deals on things I think they will like so this year my friends are getting purchased gifts which leaves me some time to do the charity doll quilts. Now all I need to do is turn off my computer so I am not tempted to keep coming back to the board.
    Happy Quilting

    Right now I'm finishing my embroidery projects and a Halloween quilt for my DGS's first party. Then it's back to Christmas, I'm working on a couple of reversible tablerunners and a reversible tablecloth that is almost quilted and needs to be bound.
    On my embroidery machine I"m making:
    "Paper" dolls with carrying case (made from fabric)
    A couple of small quilts
    Doilies
    table runners
    A 3 fold or section carrying case for little kids that has a section for crayons, one for a tablet and pen and another one for whatever. Its so cute.
    A stained glass nativity wall hanging (design from emblibrary.com)
    A mesh beachbag
    An organizer set that has cutwork roses lace that includes a TP holder, an organizer, a Checkbook cover and eyeglass case.
    Embroideried TP for decoration; plus more decorations as they come to me.
    Potholders
    In case you couldn't tell; I'm addicted to my embroidery machine and the more I learn the more I want to do. I love it because I can set the machine up and other than stopping for thread changes I can let it go while I do other things. Right now I have it setup in my front entry way so that no matter where I am I can hear it stop and get it going pretty fast.
    I also want to make some clothes.
    Plus I'm trying to finish up WIP to start the yr on a clean slate.

    It does; and you don't use it, it's just for decoration and it is really pretty.

    I have almost completed four quilts for friends ... I am binding three, then they're finished. I just took the fifth one to quilt shop to get the quilted. Got to come up with easy gifts for four friends. This year I started the first quilt in January, so I should be finished by end of October. So much fun!

    Can you tell me where I can find a pattern for this? Thought I had one saved but I can't find it now.

    All I have to do is bind 9 quilts and I'm ready for Christmas. BUT I do not like binding one little bit. I just went in my sewing room and picked out the binding for one of the quilts and laid it on the cutting table and put my ruler on top of it. That's as far as I got today. That's how much I don't like binding. I'm going to machine bind every single one of them and I still can't get myself excited to start. Dang it! What's the trick? I know it's the last step, but it's my least favorite.

    I have 11 quilts to make before Christmas; 7 are completely finished, 3 are roughly half done, and one last one still needs to be started.

    Today I spent some time sewing simple drawstring bags for each quilt, that's what I'm going to "wrap" them in. Each bag is different and coordinates (to some degree) with the quilt that will be inside it. Those were a fun easy project to make and the best part is they each only cost me $1.50 in fabric! I only picked $3/yard fabrics from Joann's Red Tag table, which are all half off right now, each bag uses 1 yard of fabric. At that price, it'd be hard to wrap the quilts for less, and everybody will have fabric drawstring bags to reuse!
