    starting on next christmas, anyone else?

    Went to joanns with some gift cards today. Got a mess of fabs on sale plus 10% more off. Since im not sure of mynext project, and you know christmasis coming and you have to make these gifts anyway, is anyone starting now??????
    It never seems to people that yes, its that time ofyear again, so i like to get a jump on it. Hot mitts,strata table runners, and emb. Napkins. Some cute polar fleecemittens and matching mittens. A quilt ortwo for the poor. Some scarves and hats also. Polarfleece atjoanns in the discount bin is $2.00/ yd today. Stock up now.
    tell me what you're working on.

    Well, I have some ideas in mind for what I want to make. And I did order the fabric to make 2 specific quilts. However, I haven't actually started working on them yet

    I was just thinking of what I could make for next year's gifts. I will be heading to Joann's tomorrow to stock up on fabric for table runners and place mats. Maybe a caserole carrier as well. I have to get at it while in the mood. You never know what may strike my fancy and steer me in other directions.

    I've got my list made of who gets what for birthdays, graduations, Christmas and what ever comes along. Will make some lap throws and baby quilts and have them finished before needed. I started my 2013 list about six months ago, as I found the pattern and fabrics cut and started the projects. That is the only way I can stay ahead of everything.

    I generally start in late Jan. I want everything done by August 1 so I can show things in our county fair. Even if they won't be winners, I like to share them with my friends.

    Ipad envelope sleeves
    Fleece scarves
    pajamas
    Clover pot holders.
    That is just a few of my ideas

    Well I have somethings planned for next year. I made a Christmas tree skirt that turned out very cute. That was for us, and I decided to make three for family next year, with fabric I still have for Christmas. I also bought some snowman flannel on sale and found a flannel sheet set with snowflakes on it on sale. So I have the makings of a flannel quilt that will be sooo cozy this time next year. That will be for my daughter.

    My Christmas sewing for this year got way-layed clear back in summer. I was planning on making lot of my gifts. But, between MIL's mild heart attack and moving her into assisted living and being a soccer grammy. My summer/fall was gone. I have done the bust my B..s before and was not going to do that this year. So did the shopping thing.

    So that means all the things I planned on sewing for this year .... will be my 'new' ideas for next year.

    I need to make quilts for my sons birthdays. One in April, and the other in October. I will be thinking about Christmas gifts while I'm making those quilts though!

    No thoughts for 2013 Christmas gifts yet. Ideas seem to come when I see a fabric that would be perfect for someone. I hadn't planned to make a quilt for brother and his wife for Christmas this year until I saw the National Parks line of fabrics. They visited the 58th and final national park on their list this year, so of course, I had to make a quilt for them.

    I am in the planning stages right now, but I always buy fabrics in the clearance bins or something that catches my eye. Our Walmart now has fabric. I collect Christmas and Halloween fabric for the holiday.
    Happy Sewing, Lisa E.

    Didn't make quilts for Christmas this year and probably won't in 2013 either. This year, I gave the larger quilted gifts to my friends for their birthdays (don't have any immediate family). It's going to be a big year in 2013. One friend will be a grandmother for the first time in mid April - twins! So you know I have to make quilts. My closest friends are turning 60 this year, so I'll be making probably 3 quilts for the special occasion. Right now I'm finishing a queen size for our room and a good size throw, both scrappy. Have a third all ready to cut out. Several scrappy patterns are appealing to me also.

    Yes , I am finishing up a few things and starting more. I just bought two patterns I am ready to try. Both of them are Christmas tree ornaments.
