Wasn't there a group started that was going to be making small items all year?  I can't seem to find it.

Me too Jean.  I've just about finished my first little thing and it's a beauty.  Want to keep it myself.

Jean, I started, right after the first of the year, to make what I call Christmas "whatever" kits. I gather up patters, supplies, do whatever necessary to get thee item to the almost finished stage, then put it all in a plastic shoe box, and label it. then in  the evening, I can go pull out a kit and work on it while watching TV. By the end of the year, I will have lost of gifts. Easy peasy! 

Can't wait to see what Thea comes up with, but knowing her, they will be great projects.

Alright, alright, you've pushed me into it.  I'll at least choose my fabrics tonight, Frances, after I leer.  :  )  

You should see my LR, boxes wall to wall.  I'm cleaning out my attic for a possible move to a condo.  Now I said possible, it's not written in stone yet but I do need to clean out my attic of 46 years of accumulation.  It will probably take me the next three months but that's ok, I'll have an empty attic.  YAY!

Barbara, the feeling is mutual.  I'll be on the lookout for the quilt, can't wait.  Barbara, now hear this, I WILL LOVE WHAT YOU DID WITH IT!  You send me a bill along with the quilt, that's an order, or I'll take you over my knee!

What is the pattern for the pincushion.  I could probably start with that.  It then would force me to finish up the quilts and stop making more tops.  I really need to start putting them together.  Have 2 from Easy Street, just finished a Christmas one, have the Mystery 7 and the June Scrappy and a Snowman quilt.  The tops are all done, have the backings and bindings are made, but I keep putting off sandwiching them and quilting.

Good morning all!  Christmas all year long group is up and running starting today ... I am not quite done with samples but have the project for January up and on the site - no pictures for it yet - had a slight set back yesterday at my home - a small - tiny - electrical fire but it caused me not to be able to do any kind of sewing yesterday - had to move things around about 3 times to make sure DH had room to fix things and make it safe!!!  Today - am hoping to get my pictoral tutorial done - I have instructions in words in the group and the idea for next month - if anyone would be interested in doing a tutorial - maybe the PP pincushion you are talking about - let me know and we will open a thread for you - all ideas are welcome... but no - no scrooges are allowed!!!
