    Christmas fabric stash going down

    Last weekend, I made a decision to work on using up my stash of fabrics. I don't have as many as most, but I have a healthy small walk-in closet filled. I organized my xmas fabrics, less than one huge bin. After sorting, I made 3 advent calendars, 9 xmas stockings, and 12 blocks of crazy patch. The calendars and stockings will be for a craft show in November. I am determined to reduce this bin to nothing, as I have way too many xmas decor items. image.jpgimage.jpg
    I will make some table runners and more 12 1/2" bocks for quick lap size quilts. Any relatives that expresses interest aof wants one will get one.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    Bravo! I have two boxes of Christmas prints. Placemats and napkins are on my list of things to do. I have a bunch of fat quarters that will get used this year. One box is all Christmas flannels, I just don't want to make a bunch of pajama bottoms. I'm looking for ideas to use up that box!

      What about a simple 5" block flannel quilt. I made a large lap size quilt with flannel blocks and backing last January. It can in handy when our furnace went out one night last December.

        I just noticed that you are from Jacksonville, Florida. I hope that you are safe from Irma.

          That's a good idea. I bet my DIL's mom would love to have one to snuggle up with when she's reading or grading papers.

            When I read the post, the end of the Twelve Days of Christmas popped into my head ... 3 advent calendars, 9 xmas stockings, and 12 blocks of crazy patch(es). Love the projects!!
