Making Christmas Week 2

Welcome to Week 2 of MAKING CHRISTMAS

And a big thank you to everyone who linked up and/or left comments last week! I’m really looking forward to seeing everyone’s plans evolve into sewn objects.

 
I’m sorry to say that, this week, I can’t cross anything off my list of things I want to make in time for Christmas. I’ve started on the table runner though – or at least I’ve made a design and put together some fabrics – so I’ve put STARTED next to it on the list! I would have preferred to be crossing things off but STARTED is better than nothing and my secret partner seems to like it so that’s good.
 
So this is what my list is looking like now:
~~~~~~~~~~~
 

 MAKING CHRISTMAS LIST

 
PRESENTS:
 
2 x Sewing/Mending Kits
3 x Wall Hangings
1 x Apron + Kitchen Things
Finish Bear (a UFO knitted from our own sheep wool)
 
HOUSEHOLD:
 
Finish Hexie Quilt (sofa throw and extra bedding when lots of people come)
Floor Cushions (for TV room when lots of people come)
Draft Excluders (for when heat wave ends)
 
SWAPS:
 
1 x Table Runner for secret partner in the Modern Christmas Tablerunner Swap organised by Susan who blogs at Canadian Abroad. STARTED
1 or 2 x Christmas Ornament for secret partner in Susan’s Modern Christmas Tablerunner Swap
~~~~~~~~~~~
 
I can’t wait to see what everyone else has been doing. I hope you’ve all had a more productive week than I did! Remember you can link anything you want to get done in time for Christmas so it doesn’t need to be a present or decoration although, of course, if that’s what you’ve made, we’d love you share it.
 
Unfortunately, I won’t be able to post this and put up the linky tomorrow morning (Monday) so I’m posting now (Sunday). 
 
Happy Sewing :)
