December's OMG

Thanks to Patty at Elm Street Quilts for hosting the One Monthly Goal linkups.  I've just recently joined the crowd, and have found it very helpful toward completing 'something' each month, even if the goal is fairly small.  Of course in the back of my mind seven or eight other projects are also clamoring for attention!  And you already knew that, since if you're reading this little blog it's 99.99% certain that you are also a quilter.

Anyhow, this month I've got several Christmas-oriented projects in the works.  Some will be gifted soon, some probably won't be complete until next year.  I've been playing around with some new-to-me fabric ornaments, and my OMG for the month will be to complete enough to be able to attach one to each of the younger grandkids' gifts. 

Three additional totes have been completed, all variations on the first one, though these latter ones have the Pellon 809 fusible interfacing which gave them more body and overall a better finish, I think.

And I used up all of that rain-wear fabric I had found in the bin...win-win! This next one has already been gifted.

And the last one

Off to our weekly quilt ministry meeting in a bit.  Linking up with Elm Street Quilts December Goal Linkup.

  4. It's so good to see you sewing away and achieving your goals! No matter the size of the finish, it's a good feeling, isn't it? And your totes are great gifts. I'm happy to say that my holiday sewing is finished, and I've returned to several WIPs that have been languishing for several months It's fun again to work on whatever I feel like!
