Monday Making

The last MAKES before Christmas are now all done.
They're even wrapped!

I took leftover blackout curtain
and made a few little car trash bags for the young men in my family.

Do you know how hard it is to find gifts for that group??
This is one of the stocking stuffers.
I rolled them up and they stuff very nicely.

I will now close the sewing machine
and MAKE some MEMORIES!!

Thanks to all of you for linking up week after week.
Here's hoping you have a wonderful Christmas!

Are YOU still making???
are you ALL done??

Monday Making

I had company this week.
We had a great CRAFTY time!

Snowmen in Southern California are not wet and cold.
They are warm and cozy.

It doesn't take much to make this kid friendly craft!

I love this project and enjoy having these little men sit on my sofa 
ALL through the Christmas season!!!

What are YOU making this week???

Monday Making

This is the month when Christmas happens in my sewing room.
It seems....if it doesn't involve Christmas...
It doesn't get sewn!

I am now adding some embroidery to these tiny trees.

I am enjoying sewing this month!
The Christmas box of fabric is in the center of my sewing room.
It has been rifled through MANY times as I think of more things to SEW!

Not sure why I can't think of these items in November????

Wrapping presents can wait.
Making cookies can wait.
Caroling can wait.

I need to sew some Christmas!!

What are YOU making this week???

Christmas Quilt

Woo hoo!!
I finished a Christmas quilt ( only)
BEFORE Christmas!

The cornerstones are not 9 patches as directed.
I just had to change the pattern a bit to make it MINE!

Don't you LOVE Red and green quilts???
Such a classic LOVELY combo!

They can be used and loved ALL year LONG!

The pattern for this quilt is here
