The strategy.

The best way to combat those niggling feelings of Christmas panic?

Get started on the to-do list! The procrastinator in me says that I have plenty of time to get everything done...the realist in me knows how fast the time goes :) So today we made our Christmas card lists (the girls enlisted the help of their class photos to make sure they didn't miss anyone...LOL), we started making some handmade cards, and...amazingly...those little niggling feelings of panic are subsiding...for now, anyway :)

The Christmas tablerunner on my to-do list has also started taking shape...

...using my charm pack of Kate Spain's 12 Days Of Christmas before it gets too cosy in my fabric stash :) My lovely crafting buddies, Linda and Tracey, are also working on one of these. We are all using the same charm pack and the same pattern, but you'll be amazed at how different they are looking already, just by using different base colours! I'll be sure to show you a photo when they're done :)
Thanks for all your lovely comments on the Cross Stitch post hopping was such fun!

Your advise about digging and starting on projects is so great. I fuss, and I fuss, and I fuss, instead of just jumping in. Crazy, eh?

I'm so lovin' that fabric that you are using in your runner. I can't wait to see it all stitched up! I'm sure it will be darling!


PS: Your girls are so lucky to have such a creative mom who involves them in such fun activities!

Tracey said...

I'm so looking forward to seeing it all together! I love the fabric from what I can see

Linda said...

Oh wow from those comments i need to go and take a photo of mine and put it on the blog. I cant wait to see them all finished and am always amazed at how differnt they all look.
See you have started some christmas planning. I had better go and write my overseas cards and post them.

I am just a little excited at how my table runner is going... can I call myself a quilter yet LOL. Mine is far from perfect, not all triangles meeting in the middle but I love it just the same.
Thanks for yesterday, I love getting together with you and Linda for crafty happy fun.
love me :-)

Looking good! How did you find working with a charm pack? Was it square and even and nice?

Look forward to seeing your progress :)
