Got 99 Problems and the Sewings Not Going to Get Done

This year like most years I set myself up some pretty high expectations on all the gifts that I am going to make for my family and friends. I spends hours prusing through Pintrest trying to find the perfect gift to make …that’s my justifcation for all the time I get sucked in on Pintrest.  Of course this planning is all done in the summer and early fall, so I have plenty of time, I will just make a couple gifts a month and when Christmas gets here I will be done.

I just realized that tomorrow is Thanksgiving and well my plan to be organized and on top of Chirstmas gifts went out the window. So here I am looking at ads and trying to reevaluate my Christmas gift list, you will not catch me Black Friday shopping… that is not for me, I like to do all my shopping online.  However, I can’t not make just a few gifts, so you will find me late at night at my sewing machine after the kids are in bed probably questioning my sanity.  So with that being said here are the projects that I am going to take on before Santa arrives.

I was so excited when April Rhodes released her Popover Poncho  . What a perfect gift for some women in my life. I am a huge fan of April Rhodes patterns, they are great for everyone from the new sewer to the experianced. She has fantastic direction, that are much less intimidating than some of the name brand patterns.

For the boys teachers this year I am making the Snappy Manicure Wallet from Noodle-Head, this is a free pattern on her site. I only have to make 7 of them before school lets out for Christmas break. Piece of cake..right.

What are your plans for Chirstmas gifts, any projects you are working on?

Have a Happy Thanksgiving.  My family has had a blessed year and we have a lot to be thankful for.
