I just joined the greatest group online. It is called Connectedthreadz It is like Facebook only for quilters!
Anyway they are having a sew in today. I don’t know exactly what it is to them, but to me it is motivation to get Christmas presents done.
I’ve never participated in a sew in. I have many, many projects I hope to finish and even get started for Christmas projects. I’m going to rotate from hand work, to machine work, to cutting etc. today trying to make a big dent in things.
It is only 2 weeks until Christmas and I only have less than a week before my girls are home. All 4 of them, plus my new grandbaby Emma and Sarah’s dear husband Jordan. (It is nice for Edward to finally have a guy around.)
Well if I’m on the computer, I can’t be sewing and sewing is what I need to do today, so I will post pics if I remember to take some.
Christmas is getting closer with each passing day. We all know it.
How are your preparations coming?
This year I resolved for it to be a homemade Christmas.
I have been with needle and thread for days now. I love it!
I can’t show you yet what I have been working on because my blog has about 5 readers and most of them are family, but I have finished
1 big gift
2 small gifts
almost finished 5 medium gifts
I have other assorted gifts in different stages.
For some I need to work on the sewing machine, some are in the cutting phase which is a good break once in a while, some require hand work, this is done in the evenings, and some are in the “I’m stuck” stage.
How are you doing? I’d love to hear about other’s progress.
