    Are YOU making Christmas gifts this year?!

    I was wondering what gifts are being made by you! I can't think of anything unique. I did find on UTube a video of a 10 minute table runner. Very pretty and easy. I thought about pot holders or mug rugs...Oh I don't know! Any suggestions?! Post pics if you will! I need help!

    Merry Christmas and Thank you SO much!

    I am making grocery totes for my inlaws. They're fast and easy and they'll love them.

    Queen Thats a great idea! My sister works in a major grocery store and she's always using the totes. Those plastic bags are so undependable! Thanks!

    Microwave bowls, potholders, tissue covers for stockings, runners for DD, quilt for my DD and son in law, quilt for husband, and folded fabric ornaments. May do some new stockings this weekend.....forgot about the grocery totes, even bought some ripstop nylon for them.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Diet Dr. Pepper in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    I made a few things so far.

    Mainly for the little monkeys in the family.

    I made a few quick table runners for relatives and knitted wash clothes and scarves to give to the neighbor ladies.
    My husband loves my knitted wool scarves and my hands are going a hundred miles an hour to get one done.
    He sure will be surpried. Happy Holidays!

    I was going to make some table runners and feed bag bags, but I was called for Grand Jury duty and I can be called in any day. So far it's 4 days this week that I have to drive into the city. We are on until January 2nd. I never know until the night before at 5 o'clock. I figured that since today we were sent home after 45 minutes, that tomorrow would be free....NOPE!!! We are supposed to report at 9:30. Wednesday we had a 2 1/2 hour lunch!! I really wonder if anyone there knows what they are doing! This is spoiling my Christmas season. :-(((

    I made my DDIL a new card holder for Christmas. I will buy a Walmart card to put in it. I did a tutorial for QB and you can see it there.

    Pillowcases folded star pillow/wall hanging, potholders, folded star ornaments, IPad covers, microwave potato and corn bags, and doggie coats - All of which are done! I have a quilt that is almost done that I will gift if I get it done but I don't have to get it done. It will be an extra.

    I'm making a few of these bread basket liners. Everyone I've made them for loves them. I'm making some little pot holders called pot pinchers & I made a "snap" purse for my friend- the kind you use the metal tape measure for the snap part. Nothing too involved! Don't want the stress of a big project !

    Mostly I made out the check to buy the presents. I did make two rag quilts for my two sis inlaws and a bed size quilt for my DGD. DD wants three stockings made from an old quilt she bought at a yard sale. I haven't made those yet. She's too picky about what she isn't making. LOL.
    Got fabric?

    I have a very limited gift list. The grands and foster children are getting quilts. For family and friends, gifts are generally homemade. Except for one, all were done by August.
    We have given to the local food drive. DH had the great idea to sponsor a "clean and struggling" family to a meal at a local restaurant this year, where the owner will make a fuss over the kids. We are not wealthy by any means, but we had times in the past living on the very edge, so we feel this is important. As a teen, DH put in long hours working for a landlord to keep a roof over the family's head when HIS family could not pay the rent. In our shaky economic times, these gifts are much more important than the table runners and placemats to kin.

    I made 3 quilts over the summer for my three grandchildren and they are ready to send to Wichita next week when Office Depot has 25% of on UPS shipping. I made 7 Christmas runners for my best "non-sewing" friends and hand-quilted them riding to Wisconsin, Kansas, and North Carolina over the summer. Now, today, I am going to try 3 table runners using a version of the 10 minute table runner. This will be for several friends that might show up with a gift. Last year I made 20 of the quilted Christmas Ball ornaments and it took me about 2 1/2 hours on each one of those. I think this runner will be fun - going to put in batting and machine quilt them.
