Can you believe half of January is gone?




I hope you've started working on your January Christmas Through the Year gift project.



In case you haven't I'm here to offer a little motivation - teehee!




I managed to squeeze in some 'me time' this evening to piece the January giveaway project. I'll quilt and bind it later this week so I can show you next Monday! Remember your name can be in the hat to win if and only you complete a gift this month!




Before


After


I'll be back with Christmas Through the Year next Monday to show the project finished and a surprise!


Remember no pressure, no stress - just fun with great results next Christmas! Imagine how good it'll feel to have 12 projects ready to give - so start sewing for Christmas!


Cheryl will be posting tutorials and such on the first and third Mondays please stop by to visit with her for more motivation and ideas.


In Friendship!

Darlene, You are giving me ideas on using my 12 Days scraps. I even have the Lil Twister ruler. I was going to make a second quilt but now I'm thinking of using the scraps this way. What a cute mini! So I guess if I only get ONE zipper attached to my little gift wallets, that is a finish, right?? :)

Too cute! I have the twister, I haven't even taken it out of the package (shhh, don't tell). I might have to break it out now.

Glad you got some me time :)

Bobbie said...

That is adorable! I have one project done- but I decided that since twas so quick and easy I would have to make another on for the Christmas stash and give this one away for spring. JAnuary is fleeting so I had better get a wiggle on it!

Love your little twister quilt. thank you for showing the lay out. I'm almost done with a Christmas gift, need to keep sewing.

barb s. said...

YEAH!!! One gift completed! Simple but sentimentally sweet. I'm new to this challenge - so what do I do now? It's posted on my blog-do I need to do anything else? Also, I haven't figured out yet how to put the Christmas Button on my blog, just the link.
