Christmas countdown!

I'm just sayin', people! It's time to get organized! To that end, today I purchased some clearance quilting fabric for gifts and some knits for me from our local Walmart. The fabric department is being cleared out, apparently to be replaced by must-have items such as faux indoor trees and flannel pillows...boo Walmart! Anyhoo, I have dreams of completing a few baby quilts as shower and Christmas gifts...along with some knitted projects, decorations & more. I have a 'master gift list' that I use to keep track of who is getting what, and what I have already completed or purchased on sale during the year, and what still needs to be acquired or made. What I need to do is make a master craft list, and try to give myself a timeline for each specific project.

A couple friends are coming over for a girls' craft night this evening...maybe I'll have something cute to share later on!


  1. Yay, I'm not the only one getting ready for Christmas! I am busy making crafts, hoping to become a vendor at a small bazaar this year, and if that doesn't work out, I'll have a ton of gifts already made. I can't wait to see what you come up with, and maybe get some inspiration :)

  2. So glad for the reminder. Every year I tell myself to get organized much earlier and every year I don't. I need to come face to face with that reminder every day. Thanks for your visit today and for leaving your thoughtful comment.

  3. Thanks so much for your sweet comments on my blog today :)

  4. That sucks that they aren't going to carry much if any fabrics. I hope you got a chance to make baby quilts. Those are great gifts for baby showers.
