I hope to put together some star wars blocks from a 1990s swap for may dad for Christmas. He asks me about it every year and it is about time.

tpott said...

I keep buying, not sewing. At this point I'm sooo disorganized that I really need to get my sewing room straightened out. I do, do a block of the month. OK maybe an apron as a gift. But unfortunatly that's about it. ;->

Anya said...

I hope to finish a challenge quilt by mid-December! Thanks for the chance once again, Meg, for a great giveaway!

Megan said...

Oh gah, how much time do you have? This is typically the time of year when I hit the sewing machine HARD so that I can end the year with as much closure as possible. Right now, I'm focusing on finishing up a quilt for the husband! Hunky Dory is probably one of my Top 10 Favorite collections, and I don't think I need to tell you how I feel about charm packs.

Alisa said...

Hoping to finish some pillowcases. No crying.....yet. :)

Holly said...

Love the charm packs too!

I am participating in a craft fair, so I am hoping to have enough "stock" made in time. I am also working on some AMH voile scarves as gifts. Fun!

Melanie said...

Yikes, what don't I want to finish before the holidays? So as to not overwhelm you, I'll say stockings for my family. Now if only I could pull myself away from the computer and get sewing! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

I hope to finish my second tetris quilt and maybe make some curtains to match for my boys' room. I finally finished the first one and just have the binding to do, so this should be easy to accomplish. I also have a crocheted afghan I am working on that I'm hoping to have finished for my mom for Christmas.

Kathy H said...

I'm really hoping to finish a Christmas quilt before the holidays. I don't have ANY Christmas quilts to decorate with. It's a goal every year but it's never happened yet!

Mom C said...

I made a rash offer of bathrobes for my children and grandchildren.Luckily, not all have taken me up on it so they'll get the traditional PJs. But I have 12 bathrobes to get going on. As soon as I get a few quilt tops out of the way I'm into the fleece! Charm packs are for January sewing!

Melissa @ Happy Quilting said...

Crystal said...

I'm hoping to finish a few quilts and some rice heating pads!

KOcanQuilt said...

I hope to make quilted placemats for my Aunt. We were at an auction and there were some she wanted but she didn't get them. As a new quilter, this will be a good chance to try something somewhat simple. I am glad to find your blog.

Hilachas said...

I want to make quilted ornaments for my friends and family for Christmas. Thanks for the opportunity to win your giveaway.

Kira said...

I can't think that far ahead. I think I should unstop the sink and fold the laundry, and reconstruct the basement now that the water is dried up.

Janet said...

I really want to make my grandson a quilt for a Christmas present. I've got the fabrics picked - just need to get started.

Nancy Sue said...

I really want to finish the "to be hemmed-or mended" pile before Thanksgiving. I have procrastinated enough and it's only getting bigger. After the holidays are here, it's crazy busy, and I refuse to start the New Year with gradue hanging over from last year. It's not even exciting projects. I soooo want to start some quilt projects in January, so I'm going to take advantage of all those wonderful preholiday Hallmark and lifetime movies, and get 'er done!!

Sheila said...

I have SOOOOO much to finish, I don't even know where to start! Definitely some bags for my sister and sister-in-law, a new scarf, some stockings...this list goes on and on!
