    I have...actually I really only work on Christmas projects! I can't help myself, when all the Christmas fabrics come out in July, I stock up so I will have something to do all year around! Then more Christmas fabrics come out as we get closer in the season. Am I the only one?

    I am making aprons for everyone female this year from a really cool-looking pattern. So far I have the pattern!

    I am also going to make the table runners for 3 of my children that I cut out last year.

    I found the cutest panel for 3 fabric boxes I am making for my granddaughters, and will put earrings in 2 of them, as they will both have pierced ears by then. That leaves 1 granddaughter and 2 grandsons. And my husband, of course. :lol:

    I just got my pattern in the mail today for my tree skirt. I've already finished one of the center panels. I am also planning on making a lap quilt for my future MIL, hopefully I will be able to use fabric from my stash. My goal is to cut it down quite a bit. I have a quilt top stored away that I'm going to have quilted for my boyfriend's god daughter. My nephew also wants a blanket made out of Minkie so I will have to find the right colors for him. I think that's it in terms of sewn/quilted items. Also have a short list of knitted projects in the works for Christmas as well.

    I enrolled in a Christmas Club at my LQS. We meet once a month for a surprise Christmas project, learning (or re-learning) different techniques each month. I love it!

    Have bought a little fabric. This past year all 4 kids have received at least 1 table runner. This year I'm trying for extra long potholders for kids & grandkids, as they are showing an interest in cooking. Not out of Christ fabric. I'm hoping to make 3 sewing boxes for 3 of the girls. Ideas are starting to gel and supplies starting to be found, as much from stashes as possible.

    Traditional Christmas fabrics just don't rock my world. :oops: I have already made a Christmas gift quilt for each of my GD's, just didn't use Christmas themed fabrics. I haven't planned any more quilted gifts other than those 2. I have already given almost everyone in my family a lap quilt. Now I am working on the long list of quilts that I want to do for myself and DH....so unless someone asks for a quilt --- I'm already done with my Christmas sewing!
