116 days till christmas....

As of right now there is only 4 months, 116 days, 3 hours and 38 minutes left till Christmas! Which means I need to get on the ball and start on my Christmas presents for this year.

We have a big family so I like starting early because that gives me enough time to make stuff for everyone on my list.

Here is a little peak of what I made over the weekend for someone.

This was actually pretty easy to do. I just ordered the watch face here and than added beads to make the band. My mother in law had an amazing assortment of beads which she kindly let me use. (Thanks Again!!!) This was pretty fun and relaxing to do. Now I just need to sew up a cute little baggy to store the watch in.

I have also started on this quilt that I am making for my DD.

I so love the vintage fabric I found at Nancy's. Can you believe it was in the discount area! They only had 1 1/2 yrad left and I am so glad I found it!

Is it just me or has anyone else started on their Christmas projects?



  1. I've been thinking about holiday/Christmas gifts but have not gotten any further than the thinking stage. Need to move on from the thinking to the doing!

    The beaded watch band is beautiful. There is some lucky recipient out there!

  2. Ummm, no. I think everyone is getting gift cards from us this year...I am still struggling under an Everest-sized backlog of projects, including 6 shawls for my mother, sweaters for my daughter (to wear THIS YEAR), birthday presents for 3 people who had birthdays in August, an upcoming birthday in October, not to mention your and the other Pay It Forward packages. And I am learning that I'm horrible at time management. ACK!
