getting my Christmas list ready.............




I am thinking of getting my 2017 list ready
so I can start those projects

my sewing buddy has two doxies
one brown one like this named Brody
and a black one named Max




Image result for doxie in sweater quilt

I bought this pattern to make for her
how adorable are they all in their
sweaters?

and the glasses..........
OMG
cuteness overload!

so I need to get at least one dog done to see
how it goes

worse case scenario a doxie  pillow would work too!





my purples and pinks bin runneth over
so I decided to do a little cutting and put the pieces into this
basket
some 5 inch squares
and 2 1/2 inch strips



then I will make more of those purple and pink
blocks that I found 2 of
an make a girly quilt
I have one granddaughter so 
maybe she would like that this Christmas 
for her bed


I will alternate the pinks and purples
by making the center one color
and the outside another


the good thing about cutting up stash like this?
a new tin to store useable pieces in


see it it getting full already
from the strips that would be too small
for this project
but will work for another


are you planning for Christmas yet?

  2. You are so smart to get started on Christmas sewing now. I always say I am going to do it but never do. I think the doxies are adorable.
