Over-committing

Last year I found myself easily caught up in all the excitement of the free BOM's etc that were available in blogland. I started two but have since fallen way behind and have no idea, at this stage, when I will be catching up. This year I've decided that I won't be "signing up" to any of the new BOM's, challenges etc - my only goal is to make at least one Christmas-themed goodie each month and anything else I start or finish will be a bonus. No "to do" list, a "wish list" instead.

On the weekend I did some more machine quilting on "Sharon's Roses" - will it be finished in time for Sharon's birthday (3 February)? We'll see. This has definitely been a "work in very slow progress". My lunchtime stitching is "Vintage Valentines" blocks 9 and 10. Check out Helen's "Vintage Valentines" blocks - they are absolutely gorgeous. At home I've been stitching Hatched and Patched's "Christmas Table Toppers" - they are very cute but gee I still need a lot of needleturn practice. The kit was part of Honeysuckle Cottage's 2008 Christmas Club.

For Christmas Sharon bought me "My Angel Garden" kit and pattern - I traced the angels while I was on holidays, so this little tablemat will be ready to stitch while watching the tennis once I've finished the Christmas mats. Very pretty fabrics in the kit.

Itried to resist all the online BOM's but have succumbed to 3. that's not bad for me, saying that though I haven't started any of them yet.

Hey Lynda I have just finished the little angle table topper and put a pic of it on my blog. It is really cute I think.
