    I know that some of you are organized enough to have started making your Christmas gifts. Have you? What are you making? I haven't started yet but am hoping for inspiration from all of you! Thanks

    No! I have a king-size quilt to make for my niece's wedding in October. I hope I get it done in time...I'm keeping my fingers crossed (when I'm not sewing!) Using the Warm Wishes pattern so it should go pretty easy.

    I am not that organized. I have finally finished some of my Christmas gifts that I was going to give last year. Does that count?

    No way, not yet. I have a quilt to make for my godchild's wedding in June. They wanted Black and white. Picked up the fabrics today. Can't wait to start. I also am making 4 quilts for the priests and deacons in our parish. I really want those done by June 1st, in case they transfer any of them to another parish.

    Yep. I've got 4 grands to make quilts for Christmas. IF I get those done, then I'm gonna try to make quilts for my daughter, stepson and stepdaughter. I've almost got one quilted and have one of the grand daughter's tops done and will soon tackle quilting it.
    If I didn't get sidetracked, I'd be ok!

    I won't allow myself to begin anything new until I finish my current project. It seems I am on the downhill slide since Christmas. Eventually I will be done.

    Bow tucks are a purse/tote bag that many of the members have made. They turn out very nice. You can probably do a "search" and see some of them.

    I think finishing last year's gifts to give this year counts!

    Three quilts done for sister's grandkids & one to go. Thinking of smaller things for the adults. Agree with the Bah Humbug. I'm tired of Christmas. Think it should be every 2-5 years. LOL.

    No gifts planned yet, but I do have my annual Christmas in July project selected. It's the only way I can make any Christmas projects for myself, I've been doing it for the past 4 years.

    REMEMBER Christmas is only ten months away! Each year I vow not to wait until zero hour to start and each year I wait until zero hour ..... maybe this year will not buy fabric and only sew out of my stash, quit eating chocolate (hey, I gave up coffee so I need that chocolate), loose weight and BE READY for Christmas early......

    I am gathering squares for five I Spy quilts for 3 g-sons and two g-nieces. Hope I can get them done by Christmas.

    heck no! I only just finished 2010's gifts the end of January. started some small projects for my sister but my little Brother keeps throwing an E6 error - tangled thread. I can see no tangles and have tried all of the suggestions from Brother's support. will have to take it in to the shop when I get a few bucks. not being able to quilt is the pits!
