ONLY FORTY MORE DAYS TO CHRISTMAS!


What do you have left to make?  Any tips on getting it done in time or some quick and cute ideas?

Only 40? Gee whiz. eh

I have made a flannel rag quilt for DGD that I need to snip and wash. I first need to finish a quilt I have into a top for DD' s friend. Then, I will make DD placemats and coasters for her glamper. I may consider a sport themed fleece quillow for a niece, but haven't looked into it yet....

40 days, huh? nervous

I'm making hedgehog pot holders.  Last time I made potholders I made about 30 of them.  My plan is to make at least 1 per day til Christmas.  It takes about 1 hour to make one.

Some great ideas here.  The hedgehog pot holders sound adorable.  As for me, I have at least 20 more days before I even think about Christmas - LOL.  I'm definitely a one holiday at a time girl

I do love this time of year but wow, does everything come up so quickly in just a few short months!! 

I have some food novelty fabrics and I plan on making some pot holders.  

I'm also finishing up quilting the Mystery Quilt many of us did with Jann, then I'll need to add the binding.  I plan on giving it to my youngest son either for Christmas or his birthday (on 1-1-18).

I may or may not be making a tablerunner at the Smokies retreat...and if successful, that will go to someone for a Christmas gift.

I wonder if she is making the same pot holder I made for Frances a couple of years ago for Valentine Day - the rick-rack serves as the hedgehog's prickles.

I'm making a 27 inch teddy for my brother, who is a Cubs fan. It will, of course, have a Cubs tshirt.
