Those are beautiful ornaments, we no longer put up a tree, don't use many other decorations either.

10 Minute Table Runners! i had made a couple before but at one of my guild meetings they were demonstrated again. so as I am going through my sewing room trying to clean it suitable fabrics are being put off to the side. My sister and I are going to get together one Saturday and make them. We have access to the building my new guild meets at and it is out in the country - my cell phone doesn't work there (I think because we share a parking lot with a police department?) and it is so relaxing out there. Usually there a couple of us that meet there to get some uninteruppted sewing done. Amazing what you can get done with no one to bother you - no phones, no company, no husband - lol. I also took one of my machines out there to keep so no lugging of machines. There is a cutting table,mat board, ironing board out there already. Just got to take fabric and cutters and of course an iron!

I have just purchased panels that have one large and four smaller panels in them and I will be making coffee and tea place sets. I get four mug rugs and use the large panel for a small table topper to be used to place cookies, sugar and cream on. Easy and inexpensive. I need lots of them so I will be starting soon.

I'm in the process of making 4 I Sply quilts for my grandsons. 2 are done ready to go to my quilter, 1 is ready for borders, and the last one I have just 8, 10 minute blocks to do and then put the top together. I also made Pillow Beds for 3 of my grandkids, two are done and one is just about an hour away. (Tutorial is posted).

I'm going to make those ceramic tile coasters for my Sil's and my mil. And maybe my daughter too. A set for me, of course. Then, I have one more quilt to make for my son before Christmas. Using a disappearing nine patch or a double slice, not sure yet which one. It will be a queen size. I have to finish it by Thanksgiving to get it back from quilter by Christmas.

In between projects, I've been making oven mitts, and potholders. It take longer to quilt them then it does to make them. But again i'm fairly new to this .

So far, I'm working on simple (Warm Wishes) sofa quilts. Nothing fancy, just something comfy. When the weather turns cooler, will start working on crocheted afghans, again. The plan is to make a variety, then let everyone pick his/her favorite.

I may make a few aprons, and let folks choose. A quilt for my Dad too. Will have to see what gets finished by then!
