    Okay, now that everyone has their 2009 christmas all complete, being a newbie at this do we start 2010 gift plans this week or do we give ourselves another or more time that.

    I am going to take the time to work on my own Oriental quilt - I posted pictures several months ago. I pulled it out last night (well, 2am - what is it with these late/early hours?) and just looked at it for about 20 minutes. Figured out that I really was to tired start it. If JRSAY (Joanne) doesn't get her Dec block this week, I am going to make her another batch of what I already did.

    huh? I'm running about 2 years behind on major events. So I think I'll be heading into 2008 at this point. lol

    Are you kidding? more time? I am on a no budget plan. I plan NOW. Placemats are in order for two out of three. I also am planning three wall quilts as gifts and am already collecting fabric as I have the patterns ready. So.. never too early. This year I started in Sept and was highly stressed come Dec so no I am getting ready right now. I want to love the holiday as I do not worry I didnt do enough... and I do so little.. so a gift a month in the bag? oh yes. oh double yes. Plus.. its a goal, a vision.. a reason to keep creating and that.. is a gift back to me right up front.

    My children and friends have more quilts than they know what to do with so I think I will spend the year making charity quilts or cancer comfort quilts for those going thru treatment. Will check with my local hospital at the oncology unit.

    I'm thinking about starting a tree skirt for DD & SIL. That means I haven't actually started it just thinking about starting it.

    I do that with a lot of projects -- think about them!! But most of the time, they don't even get started. Do these count as UFO's? (LMAO)

    If I have to look at red and green fabric again any time soon I'm taking to the bridge!! LOL. Made so many gifts that I'm not even thinking about them until at least June or July.
    My newest project is lime, pink, purple and black--definitely the ANTI red and green!!

    I have a quilt started for each of my kids that I hope to finish for Christmas next year and I would liek to make stockings for all of us, so I'm going to hit the clearance fabric for that. I also have a table topper, my fall quilt from the block exchange and my chocolate raspberry quilt when I do those blocks...Ok, if I can just finish my WIP I will be an extremely happy woman!

    This is hilarious...I tell you, my mind quilts a lot more than I do. Each year I start earlier -- it's July 4th and I go to bed that night and the next morning it's Christmas Eve - how does that happen? Anyway, I always promise to be faster but, oh well. Life is good. :lol:

    I just realized I didn't answer your initial question. hmmm, let me think about it...lol

    That's a given for me as well, I'm always on the lookout for fabrics, clothing, whatever to make wounded warrior and veteran home quilts. It's just a part of my day, I have 5 quilts I must must must stop procrastinating on, gifts for family members that have wanted them for awhile. sighhhhhhhh

    Since I have my hand surgery in 10 days time, I am looking forward to putting together some of the pieces I have cut and ready. I wont' be able to cut for a while, (DH offered to cut if I need more!!!), but pretty sure I can manage the iron with my left hand. ;) My thumb will be immobilized for 5 weeks, then pysio to rebuild strength....hence lots of cut pieces ready to sew.

    The beginning of 2010 is already booked up with this list.

    2 Quilts Of Valour for British wounded (more if possible)
    My parent's Anniversary quilt for next winter
    Two quilted pillow cases to match my nephew's wolf quilt I made for this Christmas
    I've just found a part-finished scrappy quilt top of Flying Geese in one of the bags I was sorting out the other day... this is from about 2 years ago.
    I've recently inherited an antique dutch oak chair which I want to make a copy (shape) of the cushions in a quilt pattern.
    I've also been wanting to do an applique quilt... just for myself, and I also have several quilts already cut out and sat waiting on my shelves.

    Soooo, after doing this lot, I don't know what I'm going do during the last week up run up to Christmas 2010 :-)

    Christmas related projects are all for me...
    1 tree topper angel kit
    1 tree skirt kit
    1 nearly complete Santa
    several ornaments

    The rest of my wips are all bf, dad and veteran related.

    I hope I get the Christmas items done before Christmas '10.
