Thanksgiving is behind us, and the first of December is coming fast, and we all know what that means! Time to buckle down and get that Christmas sewing finished! I didn't make a list last week (but my house was very clean and I was very relaxed on Thanksgiving!) so there's nothing much to recap - the only things I worked on were things I couldn't share.
Oh wait - I do have one thing I can share! Today when I was at Target, I found this awesome placemat...
...which immediately screamed "PILLOW!" to me! That baby hopped right in my cart and came home, took a few minutes to find some partners (a 14" pillow form and some red pompom trim).... and then I came to my senses. I set it aside to take apart tonight, and started working on a commission quilt. But tomorrow! This will turn into a pillow first thing in the morning. THEN I'll work on the commission quilt.... 😇
So - here's this week's list of things I need to get done...
1. Finish piecing the commission quilt.
2. Quilt and bind the commission quilt.
3. Create the dolphin appliqué for Lilli's annual quilt.
4. Start quilting the kids' annual quilts.
5. Decorate the house for Christmas.
6. Keep up with any quilt ministry needs that come up.
So not a long list, but I think it's plenty to keep me out of trouble. This weekend the Christmas parties start, and I've got two here at my house, so I definitely need to get the decorations set out. It's always fun, and I've got it down to an art - I just need to grab the tubs out of the attic and take them to the rooms they go in!
So now the question is - - - what are YOU working on this week?
