    Overachievers, are you done or almost?

    Do you know we have 57 days til Xmas! :roll:
    Or if you prefer ~ 8 + weeks ;-)
    Or 1,368 hours. :|
    Or 82,080 minutes. 8-)

    So however you want to count it down, if you are like me . . . . OMG I need to get started with that sewing!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have been working on projects all year. I have 6 lap quilts done, 45 microwave potato bags, tons of finger pin cushions and lots of knitting done already. Money is tight right now, so it's hand made gifts made from the stash. Thank god I have a big stash.

    No quilts for Christmas from me this year, but I am making some capes for my granddaughters. I have bought some stuff but will start for real this coming Saturday.

    Ugh.....what a depressing thought. :( Have been too busy to do much of anything. YUCK! I want a simple, taking things back to simpler days Christmas-you know...what is the meaning? DH not so. So, I'll be the one struggling to do it all meanwhile I'm on unemployment and his work is dwindling down. Yep....fun fun! Oh, I didn't mention-we have 5 children; ages 13, 10, 10, 7 and 4.

    I forgot!! I do have 1 think done! ;) It's a Table Topper for my Mom. ;) She does Roosters in her kitchen. I think it's cute!

    Is there a pattern that you might be able to point us to? My kids would LOVE a cape! ;)

    I have one and a half quilts left to quilt and bind. Hopefully by the end of this weekend it will be just one. But that would mean I have to get off this computer :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I know this might sound weird, but all the hustle and bustle and time crunches involved really make it fun for me. So do I have a lot to do....yeah...but I love it! Just makes me smile! (Maybe I'm an elf from another life!)

    I have most of mine done, working on them hot and heavy the past several months; 11 queen-size quilts completed, 4 throws; one more queen to go, some table runners to do, but I'm getting there!

    I still have 4 quilts to make yet. Today I will be cutting out the fabric pieces and making kits for each quilt. Tomorrow I will get started on sewing the kits together.
