    I did my 20 years and believe me them homemade projects, and goodies that were sent to us in Iraq made my day!

    A good reminder. You can entertain the children this summer by making keepsakes for our troops. Lots of ideas out there!

    I have started "collecting" my Christmas fabrics for projects and brainstorming for ideas for gifts. Haven't started on any actual projects yet though.

    I'm also making pillowcases for all family members, not Christmas fabric, but to fit their personalities as wrapping for the presents i'm giving. Wheather its handmade or bought. I think that would be fun & diferent

    I AM I AM I AM! I, too, love all of the Christmas fabric. I have a small quilt, table runners, and other projects. Some started, some ready to start!

    Well I started on a tree skirt that was on the Moda Bake Shop site. I have the top done in 1 afternoon! It takes layer cake, very cute and will make at least one more! I have trouble getting holidays stuff done in time and I give up on it! These will be for 2 of my kids with famlies!

    Christmas!?!?! That is so far away. I did get some embroidery designs when they were on sale to use for something. Right now I am too busy helping granddaughters learn to sew, making a quilt/blanket for grandson to take to college, and have to make some nighties for SIL that she requested. I always seem to end up rushing at Thanksgiving to get everything done. Probably no quilts this Christmas, they have all gotten them in the past.

    I have to say that I always have the best intentions of getting my Christmas projects out of the way early..... but as it gets closer, I just adjust my list. She doesn't need a quilt this year. He is just let the dog sleep on it. You get the point.

    I did a few projects in May from the On the Run book using Christmas fabrics.

    So, I am further ahead

    Have three table runners sewn and I'm working on hand quilting them for 2 daughters and 2 daughters-in-law. Have made quite a few sets of those coasters for our church bazaar and they sold very well.

    Did a major shopping at Marshall's Dry Goods a couple of months ago and bought theme fabric for pillow cases for most of our family members. I've sewn about 5 of them so far. Lots of "fishy" ones for the fishermen in the family and everything from horses to robots for the younger set. Also made a "cocktail" one for a girlfriend. It's fun to match the fabric to the person's job/interests!

    I love to start Christmas early. That I can give what I want and aford to do it. I'm on a limited income. And the family loves what I make. Make almost all my Christmas every year. I give it a lot of thought and try to reflect they personaly or give them something they want. I have my list all done and half of the presents.
