It's Never to Late to Start

Deadlines. I don't like deadlines.
That's why if I don't start a Christmas project by July, I just don't even go there.

But I have a sweet, sweet friend that doesn't think like that at all. The week of Christmas is the perfect time to make a quilt or a puppet stage or make a lot of other gifts.
Actually it works out really well, because I don't have any projects to finish, because I didn't start any! :-) So sure, let's sew.
We whipped up these Sweet Sixteen table toppers for her mom & mother-in-law (I need to press them a little more). Love this pattern. It's fast.
Love the pattern so much, I made two.

Plus I do have a 'thing' for little squares.

You too can make some, there are kits in the store.
The kits feature Moda's new line -- Civil War Homefront.

Met the deadline with 4 days to spare....ahhhhh.


  1. It looks really nice, but I don't want to have the pressure!

    Merry Christmas.

  2. We are so totally sisters. I'm exactly the same way. I think it's my oppositional defiency in fine form.

    Those are really cute!! What are WE going to work on when I get there????

  3. I'm of the "wait until the last week" branch of our tree - which is why I am having a panic attack because a certain gift went the way of figgy pudding this evening. Hopefully I can pull something together very soon!

  4. They look great! I'm a last minute kind of gal. I started 2 quilts this past weekend. Putting the binding on the last one today.

  5. Very cute! Sometimes sewing is just the stress-reliever that's needed! :-)

  6. that's a great rule you have there. maybe i'll follow it next year! i have this don't-ask-me-to-do-anything-for-you-after-Oct.-1st-rule. i like yours better.

  7. Very nice! I seem to work best with that deadline looming over me. In fact I have a project to do that I haven't even started yet!

  8. Thanks for popping in. So glad you liked the pics- it's snowing as I type so it's magical out there again but even deeper. :-)

    Merry Christmas!

  9. oh I love the sweet sixteen pattern!
