Make-A-List Monday - Don't Hurry Down That Chimney Yet!!



Hi, all!

Wow - are you still as full of turkey as I am?  We had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend, full of food, family, fun and shopping!!  And plenty of sewing, too.  I hope you had just as much fun as I did!

Less than a month until Christmas - can you believe it?  I've been working really hard on my gifts, so let's see how I did on last week's list...


1.  Quilt and bind the four ministry quilt needs.
Done!  I'll be delivering these to church this week...


2.  Quilt the modern grey quilt.
Done!  I love the way this turned out... but I haven't taken pictures yet... so I'll show it off later!

3.  Sew together the southwestern quilt.
Done!  I'm so happy this one worked out well...


4.  Sew Emmy's stocking together.
Done!!  Tomorrow Lilli and I will be hanging all the stockings!


5.  Start working on a super-secret Christmas gift.
Done!  Can't show it yet, though....

6. Decorate the house for Christmas!
I've started, but there's a long way to go!  Good thing Lilli likes to help put out all the "Christmas clutter".....

Hey, it's a start!

And here's what I need to be working on this week...

1.  Quilt the southwestern top.

2.  Make Lilli's nightgown.

3.  Cut out a gift quilt.

4.  Make the back for Emmy's quilt.

5.  Decorate the house for Christmas.

6.  Start wrapping Christmas presents.

7.  Prepare for two Christmas parties at my house this Saturday!
(Urk - cleaning!!  But it's for a good cause!)

And that's what I'll be working on this week, in between playing with those sweet babies!

So now the question is - - - what are you working on this week?

Hugs!

Sarah

  1. I love the stocking! I finished my mom's quilt and sent it off! I also got the borders sewn on the prayer quilt top. This week I still need to finish my friend's dress (can we say lots of seam ripping on this one?), another friend's capes, and a bathrobe for my husband. I also need to clean since a friend is coming over to sew on Wednesday!

  2. Oh you get so much done! Just adore the stocking and how fun to have the grands there to help with the decorating. My sewing will be cut way done now that I have to tend to my Mom. Think it will be just finishing off projects and re-organizing.

  3. That stocking is adorable! You have quite the list, but I'm sure you'll tackle most of it. I don't know how you do it, but you do! I'm working on some secret stuff too. Wish I could blog about more of it, but not yet.

  5. I love Emma's stocking. I cheated and bought our cross stitched stockings already made a couple of years ago. I am working on quilts, quilts and a few more quilts. I have finished my oldest son's and DH liked it so much he has requested one. DH might be fabric in a box for Christmas.

  8. Love the SW quilt! Wow!!! Your Christmas tree looks great. We helped my parents decorate while we were there for Thanksgiving. I still need to get mine done though.

  9. That southwestern quilt turned out beautiful, Sarah! Good luck with getting everything done. I keep avoiding thinking about exactly how much I need to get done - I'm only focusing on the project directly in front of me, and taking each one on its own!

  10. Love that stocking. It's so adorable. Good luck on your projects this week. I haven't even started decorating for Christmas yet. In the German tradition that I grew up with, we usually wait forever to get a tree and then leave it up until well after Christmas is over.
