It's the last Monday before Christmas!! Are you ready yet? I'm so happy to say that I did well on my list this past week - so let's get right to it...
Here's the recap of last week's list:
1. Piece a back for Christmas Gift Quilt #1.
Done!!! And quilted, too! (See #5 below...)
2. Quilt Christmas Gift Quilt #2.
Done!! (I'll have to show you pics later - this one's for Lilli and I forgot to get pictures before she came over!)
3. Make more mug rugs.
Done!! (But there are still more to make - just luckily not for Christmas!)
4. Clothes for the naked doll!
Done! I decided to check out the ones I found her in, and it turned out that they were in remarkably good shape, especially considering how old they are! So I pressed them up and dressed her in them and I think she looks pretty good for an old gal....
|This doll came out of my grandmother's attic.|
The chair she's sitting in was my grandmother's also, when she was a little girl,
and was given to my daughter the year she turned three!
5. Sandwich and quilt Christmas Gift #1.
Done and done!!
|Just a sneak peek on this one, since it's a Christmas gift!|
I also made a couple of really cool Christmas gifts that weren't on last week's list, but can't show even a peek until after Christmas....
And now, here's what I'd like to get done this week!
1. Make some mermaid dolls.
2. Make a house block for Beth's challenge/contest!
3. Make a baby girl quilt for the quilt ministry.
4. Begin designing my ALQS5 quilt.
And of course, finish Christmas shopping and wrapping!! But those are my sewing goals for the week....
I hope you're having a wonderful week and Christmas season - just remember, no matter how crazy it all seems to get and how stressed out you are, the first Christmas was very simple - no special decorations, fancy food, or electronic gadgets - just the best gift of all, the Baby in a manger.
