Make-A-List Monday: We need a little Christmas . . .

What a week that was! I made a quick trip to my hometown on Saturday, so that cut into my sewing time a bit. I was supposed to come home yesterday, but there was some seriously thick fog that I did not want to drive through. Not with all the crazy college students returning. So I stayed an extra night and drove home this morning. It was a nice visit, but it meant that not a lot got done.

How did you do? Here's an update on me:
  • Quilt and bind Holiday Hostess quilt
Nope. Gotta get this one done right away and mailed this week!
  • Make my tree skirt
It's official. My tree has cuter Christmas clothes than I do!

  • Baste, quilt and bind Easy as Cake Christmas quilt
It's basted. I'll finish this one up this week too.
  • Work on my, erm, Halloween Spider web quilt 
The strips are sewn and pressed. I've got to get the cutting done. Later. Those Christmas quilts are top priority now.

  •  Make my Christmas gift bags
Three are done and waiting to hold gifts. More to come, but I can check this off my 4Q FAL list.

Less than a month left until Christmas. I've got WAY too much planned. Here's my list:
  • Seven new stockings
  • Five sets of dragon wings
  • Five different softies: a dolphin, a shark, a sea turtle, an alligator and an owl
  • jammies for my husband
  • The rest of the gift bags
  • Five dragon softies for my little dragon lovers - I'm SO excited about this one 
  • Library bags and zipper wallets for my niece and nephews
So, for this week:
  • Project organization
  • Quilt and bind Holiday Hostess quilt - ship it off!
  • Quilt and bind Easy as Cake Christmas quilt
That's it. When those three are done, then I'll get to this stuff:
  • stockings
  • gift bags
  • softies (I'll start with the owl for my baby girl)
  • library bags
What's on your list, fellow elves? Linking up!
