I've got 7 different scrap quilts done and have 2 more to go. Then I will start on table runners, place mats and kitchen towels. Hopefully I can get it all done.

Last year, the girls got the quilts. This year it's the boys. I've got one that I just have to finish the binding on, one that the top is done and one I'm piecing. The 2 still in the works I'm undecided on the batting for. I used warm & natural in the first one, but it's large and heavy. The other 2 live here in FL, so I'm hoping to find a lighter batting. Not sure after that. I was hoping to do some tree skirts. I've got the makings for the French Braid one (for me).

I asked the same question on Dec 26, 2009 and I still have not gotten started, so what's up with that?

I started wall hangings. I have 3 ready to back & quilt. I think I need cooler weather & maybe Nutcracker music to really get in the mood.
I have to do a Halloween tablecloth next!

I'm still trying to get my current WIPs as well as a few UFOs done. Some of those might end up as Christmas presents, but mostly not. I'm trying to come up with good 'guy' gifts that are fairly quick to make as I only have a couple of gals to sew for and about a dozen guys (ages 6 and up to 89)...any suggestions?

I thought about and then, true to my adult ADHD, I went onto something else. :)

j/k I don't make anything quilted for gifts as I would have to make multiples of 7. I do have 3 big tubs of Christmas fabric. Someday I will make a tree skirt and a throw for my living room.

My men like to cook. I made manly aprons with a big pocket. My grocer sells "Everything Rub". I put it in the pocket and say "Use your imagination"! The little guys would love those floor quilts with roadways to use with their blocks & little cars. Teenage guys like big body pillows. Older guys, ho about rice bafs for easing aches & pains. My massage therapist friend makes them w 5 channels to hold rice. Goes in microwave. And as they sing on Sesame Street "Keep Christmas w you all thru the year..."

I'm working on a quilt for SIL....not Christmas fabrics, but a Christmas gift, requested by DD. It is a dot-matrix picture of an old video game screen from some 80's era game...so I have to use all solids (UGH!), be perfectionistic about following the pattern and it's all done in pieces 1.5" (finishing 1") strips. YUCK! However....I have fabric for my first bargello sitting there waiting for me and I've promised myself I won't touch it til SIL's quilt is finished! :)

Not making anything for Christmas this year. I don't have too many people anyway and everyone has something. I use to make something every year for the Humane Society Christmas party but it was one of the gifts that were never switched (Dirty Santa) so I said the heck with it. Everyone seems to like the lottery tickets the best so that's what I am doing this year.
