    What (if anything) are you sewing at the moment?

    I'm working on a table runner made with a Nostalgia turnover. I have fabric on the way from MSQC, so something to keep me busy while I wait for that. I like the Nostalgia but feel like working on something Christmasey, for me.

    Are you able to sew now or are you too busy? What are you trying to make time to work on?

    I am making a wall hanging to surprise my husband. It's of steam engine trains as he loves them. I'm trying to hand quilt it while he is out taking care of his customers. Between business calls, and books, laundry, and cleaning. Like everyone else I'm feeling the pinch of a fast approaching Christmas. I'll make it, somehow I always do. Hope your Christmas plans are coming together too. Hugs, Jan

      I'm making a santa for my DIL she collects them and then I've got to make some bow ties for my grandson. Martha has a tut on how to make them and it looks easy. My daughter said he would love to have one for each holiday but I'm just making one for valentines for now and then make more later on. Gotta wrap some soon!

        I just made 4 batches of sugar cookies and 2 of gingerbread. I hope to get them decorated by the end of the week. the back to sewing. I have 2 aprons on the cutting table to do. I may squeeze them in over the next few days too. then I have a quick blanket to make for the daughter. A simple whole cloth type thing.
        Then what ever else I can manage before Christmas!

            I'm working on a dresdon for my cousin who has breast cancer. This is my second dresdon. My first was a wall hanging, that I loved so much, I had to do a quilt.

              I was so busy the last two weeks that I did not get much sewing done except for a label on a finished quilt I gave as a gift last weekend. Just thinking now that Christmas is over with my family and I have been feeling down, that it is time to start on the Black and White Swap blocks. Maybe that will cheer me up!
              My son gave me a $25 gift card to Joann's so I see some fabric shopping in my future!
              Love to hear what everyone is working on!

                I just finished a bag for my mother. It's the same as this one except she wanted a zipper closure instead of the flap. You can make covers to button on, so I can make her other ones for other occasions. Hard to find something for a 93-year-old, so I was happy when she saw the one I made for my sister-in-law and said she'd like one with the same fabric.

                  I'm crosstitching my second grandson's christmas stocking (i've only been working on it for a little over a year) and almost have it finished. Maybe by Christmas Eve. On top of that two quilt tops to put together and 3 to get done by next quilt club in January. The week I'm off during Christmas and New Years is going to be busy.

                  Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

                    Re: Yeah it's done!!

                    Just finished (at 30 this morning) a quilt for my daughter and rushed it to UPS - This is her first Christmas away from home and wanted her to have something homey. Now, I can work on some casserole carriers for friends.

                      I'm trying to squeeze in some sewing amongst my uni work but end of term deadlines are taking over my life so it's not going so well. I've partly sashed my bear paw quilt (you can see it here). I've been putting it off because I don't have the space to layer it up here but I want to finish the top before I go home so I can quilt it over the holidays.

                      I'm also making a tea cosy for mum for Christmas based on this one that she fell in love with in a window:

                        Her's what I.m working on right now. I'm going to machine quilt it-hopefully I can get it done for Christmas.

                              Just getting ready to start sewing full size quilt. Have 24 emborided owl squares, going to put a one inch border around them all and then stripes between. Will be in golds, brown and orange. Picked up the brown material today while in town.
