    I always 'try' to start as early as possible BUT.........

    life gets in the way
    not in the 'sewing' mood
    idea come up in Dec!

    So when do you 'try' to start?

    I already started for next year, last week. I'm making myself a new tree skirt. Found a pattern and fabric I love, now to figure out how to make a French braid and put it together.

    If I'm going to do something quilted for Christmas I try and start no later than September. I will only do small projects like table runners or pillows or something similar for Christmas.

    I like to start in the summer but I'll be having shoulder replacement surgery sometime next summer, so my 2011 Christmas quilting might be done very early next year or not at all.

    I want to do several quilts for next year. One I wanted to do for this year, it is too bad I didn't get it done, because the sister I want to give it to is here from several states away this Christmas. I also want to do one for two other sisters. Then the other three sisters for 2012 Christmas. I have a chronic disease and want to make sure they each get one before I am gone. First I am going to make me two quilts to replace the two I made for myself thirty years ago. One of them will be super fast, So I hope to start in Febuary with my sister's quilts!

    Well, I actually ran out of time on one gift!! Its a 101 x 108 quilt for my fil's bed!! He got the top in a box, so next week I get to start quilting it!! Oh well, didn't want to rush and screw it up, so the finished product will be just a little late! Oh embarassing!! :oops: Good intentions though.

    I have seen on emblibray.com a neat project. Putting an applique made from touille or organza on a pillar candle. I'm going to try this. My daughter wants me to make a thanksgiving and cristmas quilt for the g baby. We started a tradition in our family, I made pj's alike for all of us to wear Christmas eve/Christmas morning. So off to Hancocks/JoAnns to find Christmas fannel cheap for next year. Merry Christmas everyone....looking forward to another wonderful year on this board.

    I hope to start no later than August. I have three oversized throw quilts to make for next year. This year, I finished my last project as the recipient was on the way to my house for the gift exchange!!
