Christmas’y WiP Wednesday {18.12.2013}

Almost the end of the year!! Why is it always so chaotic??

I had planned my week of posts and unfortunately have not been able to stay to plan. Mostly, this is due to the fact, I am getting home after dark (~6pm), and I just can’t take great photos.  Winter and its short days are not my friend :-(.

So excuse the photo quality, but I really wanted to post about my current WiPs I have going this week.

  1. Zakka Circle Pot holders – these are for a friend for Christmas. Tops are sewn, just need to quilt + shape + bind the pot holders.PotHolders
  2. Made some progress on the X & + quilt, with another two blocks done only 3 1/2 rows to go to make my December goal.X+Blocks

  3. Christmas Stocking – pulled out pattern and fabrics, I have an idea about the design. I am thinking a 23/24 Dec finish.ChristmasStockingFabric

  4. I am hoping to finish off these place mats I started a month or so back. ChristmasPlacemats_Red
  5. Lastly, Framed Quilt Blocks – these two need to be completed by Friday as they are gifts for people at work.

I am slowly starting to panic as I really need items 1, 3, 4, 5 finished in the next 6 days. I just need more time in the day :-).

I hope your Christmas prep is going well. I am linking up with Lee over at Freshly Pieced for WiP Wednesday.

    Your x and plus blocks look great! Good luck with your Christmas crafting – I may start mine tonight. I’ve been seeing your ipad stand all over the internet lately – congratulations on a successful design.

    It’s always so tough to get things done when you’re also working and it’s so dark so early and you’ve got a family so you can’t just say, “Oh, I’ll eat toast for dinner because that’ll be done in 2 minutes or less and then I can sew!” Anyway, all the best getting it all done in time 😀

        Haha.. that’s awesome! Toast is my go-to lazy dinner (if I have bread, anyway, which isn’t often really, and if I’m feeling like putting in a bit more effort, it’ll be canned beans on toast).

    I really, really thought I was on track this year (it would be a first!) — but somehow things went to #*@! and here I am again, scrambling to finish, wrap and mail. I wonder if it would really be “Christmas” without the crunch? Good luck with it all, and know that you have plenty of company!

    I LOVE your xplus blocks! I see them everywhere since you introduced me to them via your blog. And I agree; I wish they sold extra hours in the day, but no online fabric store seems to have them…
