Making Christmas Progress

I feel like Christmas is coming full speed ahead and I can't keep up. I probably have unrealistic aspirations about how much stuff I can make before Christmas. Actually Thanksgiving is the first deadline, since I wanted to give each family their stockings then.

Making Christmas List:
1. Quilt and bind my Cubic Rhythm quilt - (4 1/2 more blocks, plus borders) - No Progress this week!
2. Mermaid pillows
3. Purple Heart Wall-hanging - no progress
4. At least 4 Christmas stockings - 17 stocking cuffs embroidered, 7 stocking feet made.
5. 2 iPad covers - 3 Spines embroidered - I work at a Chiropractic College and these are for co-workers
6. At least 6 potholders - no progress
7. 2 doggie mats - embroidered
8. Several last minutes ideas that I haven't thought of yet! - 2 pillows for friends embroidered

I'll be linking up with Janine over at Rainbow Hare Quilts for Making Christmas List.

I really need to get moving if I'm going to get all this done, not just started!

Color Me Quilty!



  1. You're certainly off to a flying start! Your stockings are looking great, Your spines are fabulous - they really made me smile, and you've embroidered lovely doggie mats and stunning pillows too! I don't know which I like best. All of them are wonderful :)

  2. WOW WOW WOW! You put me to shame Pat! Here I was all impressed with myself that I have ONE Christmas handmade gift underway, and here you made 17 stockings and hundreds of other amazing things!!! Your family is going to be thrilled! How terrific! I especially like Jen's stocking. Such great colors! I need to GET TO WORK! :)

  3. WOw, so many things! You are making me feel a little lazy, lol.

  4. Omgosh! Those stockings are great! Spines are clever and the sea turtle, I LOVE -- I'm definitely feeling lazy!
