Christmas is Coming!

Oh my gosh, I'm crazy!

I just bought Jo-Ann's completely out of cute little Christmas stitching kits.  And my goal?  Yeah, to have it all done by Christmas.  I'm insane.

Also, I'm working on a really cute pattern (coming soon....eventually someday when I figure out how to format it using Photoshop and Illustrator!) for a customizeable calendar.  Oh yeah, it's cute.  Can't wait to share some sneak peaks with everyone.

Also, I bought a pattern by Melly & Me for Ruddy (a reindeer with a red nose).  He's A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E!  I want to make him ASAP.

PLUS, I've decided to make a quilt for my cousin who is getting married.  Yep.  That's right.  And her shower is in a few weeks.  Yeah.  I know, I'm crazy.

I'd also like to make a lot of the gifts that I will be giving this year.  Of course, I do have several already made that were leftovers from last year, but I still have a lot to do.

I thought I was all prepared and ahead of things, but no!  Christmas has crept up on me faster than I thought it would.  YIKES!  Wish me luck!  More updates to follow, I hope!

Quilt Market

yumSo, I was pretty sad when I realized that I couldn't go to Houston Quilt Market this last weekend.  But, my mother-in-law and 2 of my sisters-in-law (one of them being Lola of Izzy & Ivy Designs) did get to go.  They brought me back quite the haul.  I was so excited!!
Fabric from Lila Tueller's new line Isabella.
Fabrics from Clothworks.

Any my absolute favorite:  Swoon by Melissa Averinos.  I must purchase the other colorways once they are available. I absolutely love, Love, LOVE this line!

From everything I've read on twitter, it sounds like everyone had an awesome time at Quilt market.  Can't wait to see/meet everyone at QM Spring 2011 in Salt Lake City!
