Two of the last three Christmas gift projects are well underway. I have only to stitch the binding down on the 'bar' runner for our friends, so I'll finish that tonight while watching TV. I'm also working on the Christmas placemats you can just see in the background there. I'm making eight of them, and I'll give four to my SIL and her husband, and four to my brother and his wife, in addition to some other gifties. Maybe in future years I'll add to their collection. I have a LOT of the Xmas print fabric.
I decided earlier this month that the Atlantic Jewels quilt I was making could be a gift for my Mum for Xmas, so I just need to quilt it up for her.
This is the first item to be placed under the tree, but it won't stay there too long. This is a little giftie for Amy's school teacher. My standard mug mat and cute mug. I had plans to perhaps make her a holly table runner, but I just can't face all that machine blanket stitch again, so maybe next year ... although next year her teacher is a man, so I may have to think differently.
Yesterday afternoon I made myseslf a quick coffee and settled in by the laptop to have a quick read of a few blogs. I logged into bloglines and horrors, it indicated I had over 300 new feeds to have a look at! OMG, my mind was reeling as to how I'd get thru that many, but soon discovered a whole lot of blogs had been refreshed, so they were at 25 posts. Thank heavens. I knew I was a little behind on my reading, but that would have been a new low for me!
Well now ... I'm off to play with Bernie for a little, we've got some placemats to put together. Have a great day!
