    I am making a canvas wood carrying thingy-dont't know what you would call it exactly-just know that when hubby brings in wood he carries it close to his body. Thought I would be able to design a canvas carrier that will have handles. NOT a tote bag thing , more like a sling!?!?!?!

    I am making a quilt with all different kinds of fish prints and a short sleeved pocket shirt or two with other fish prints, and replacement boat cushions out of marine grade vinyl.

    I am making my DH a bowtie quilt in indigo blues in Civil War reproductions and fabrics that look like that or at least I think they do. Also I am going to try and make him some boxer shorts and pj pants from some flannel. I have made my son a fleece blanket before, may make him some pj pants too. I love working on the bow tie quilt since I found a pattern that can be fully machine pieced. My hand sewing skills suck...
    Did you say you dropped the pie!

    I am making my husband and son, an apron, with a matching chef hat, and pot holders. They love to cook! My son actually ASK for a plastic bag holder for all his wal-mart bags to reuse them!

    I'm making a quilt for one son- just a simple random brick pattern since he said he doesn't like "fussy". For my oldest I'm making quilted placemats - he loves to cook and entertain. For a few guys in my office who are big golfers I made luggage handle wraps with a really cute golf tee fabric. They got them early for a long, drawn out reason, but they seemed to really like them.

    Every year I give the females in my family a quilt. They have more quilts than I do. But I have also given the males a manly quilt. This year I haven't made any manly quilts so I have no idea what to give them except gift cards to Cabela's.

    My son asked me to make him an apron. Luckily, I have some fabric that I think he will like so I don't have to buy any.

    I am making slipper boots for all the blokes (men) in the family. I have been saving old pairs of Jeans all year, and have recovered enough material to make the boots from denim. I have loads of brightly coloured and patterned fabrics (Orange, lime green, reds and yellows, with spots and stripes etc, etc) for the linings. Some slipper gripper fabric on the soles, and some old very thin fleece for the wadding (batting) inside (between the denim and the lining). Very Cozy. I have about 15 pairs cut out so far, but need to get a move on if they are all going to be finished in time!

    My DH is in a couple of old boys garage rock n roll/blues bands, and he records other old boys, so I got some wild flame fabric and am covering some notebooks for him to use at gigs to hold set lists, music, flyers, email signup sheets and business card holder pages, etc.

    My hubby wants a "long enough" quilt for him to curl up in. It needs to be at least 104" long-he says. So he will get a quick squares quilt, and maybe some flannel pillow cases~
