Make-A-List Monday #23! And the 29th post for NaBloPoMo....

Hi, all!

Well, I am very happy to report that I managed to finish everything on my list from last week!  Here's the run-down....

1.  Finish the reversible Christmas dress.
Done - here are pictures of both sides of the dress!

2.  Finalize the design and cut pieces for a big pile of mug rugs.
(We'll be working on these on Saturday when we meet to sew.)
Also done!  I ended up making several and showing them to the ladies, 
along with the bag of scraps. They came up with some great ideas
 and designs on their own!  Just a few more to make...

3.  Cut out #1 Christmas gift quilt.
Done, and I've sewn part of it together already!

4.  Cut out #2 Christmas gift quilt.
All cut out and ready to go!

So - what's on the list for this week?

1.  Complete the flimsy for #1 Christmas gift quilt.

2.  Cut out and complete a pinafore for Lilli's birthday.

3.  Start the flimsy for #2 Christmas gift quilt.

4.  Make four more mug rugs for gifts.

5.  Put away newly donated fabric in my sewing studio.

6.  Restring an antique doll for Lilli for Christmas.

I think that's enough to keep me busy for a while, don't you?

So - - - what are you up to this week?

    This week, I will finish my Christmas mug rugs (I only need 3 total) and meet another large milestone on my secret Christmas gift quilt. It is so much work, and I am getting nervous about all the upcoming steps. But it WILL GET DONE by Christmas!
