Middle of the Week!

It's wednesday.... I never post on Wednesdays....well, almost never. But I needed to put an update in here before the weekend.

This weekend I hope to post pictures of a few things that I've done for Christmas 2008... yep...that's right... 2008.... no sense waiting til the last minute! lol

I've even started a Yahoo group called the 25 weeks of Christmas. The official kickoff is July 5th... but from now til then...we'll be getting ready by doing small projects... a couple of goals, and kicking around ideas for gifts.

I'll try to keep you updated here as to what we are doing.

This month the goals were simple.... Get a Box.... any kind of box... this is for holding the gifts as they are finished. Make a list......use a spreadsheet, notebook, whatever you have but list every gift you know you need for the coming year... List the name of the giftee....what the gift is and when you need it.... birthdays...anniversaries...weddings... graduations etc...... now there will be last minute stuff that pops'll be ready!!! The final goal is to make at least 6 Tissue Packet Covers... the kind you stick in your pocket or purse or backpack..... we found several types on the net and we discovered that all tissue packets are NOT created equal! Some are thicker than others and some are a wee bit longer or wider and some open from the ends instead of in the middle (sigh) but it keeps our creative processes flowing! lol

February goals will be given to the group this weekend.......and I'll also post them here... just in case you want to blog along with us on this adventure. Our yahoo group is limited in membership...we just wanted to be large enough to get a good variety of ideas...but small enough that we can enjoy each others company.... so far, we've accomplished that goal!

I'll also be posting pictures this weekend of some wallhangings I've done ..... one is called Sunnyside Farm and it is just toooooo cute!! Hubby wanted it for the empty space above the stairs that go down to the family rooms........the other is a log cabin star that I'll be teaching a class on in February. I also have a January Block of the Month to finish before the weekend for a class I'm to teach next Monday... the original teacher has to be I got the stuff yesterday....and I'll be ready! lol

I have some wonder wallets and coaster sets done and I'll post those pics also.........

So... until the weekend

Happy Sewing
