I was planning to get back on track with my Making Christmas list and make about a dozen pouches and I thought I’d start with a remnant of Bee in My Bonnet fabric and some metal zips because I thought they would combine to give a nice retro effect…but I haven’t made a huge amount of progress…
I do have one finish, though. You can see more details here.
So my WIP this week stands at:
Finished – 2
Started – 4
No Progress – everything else!
How are your Christmas makes coming along?

Pretty fabrics for your pouch. That quilt is gorgeous. Christmas makes – just about done – I've made drawstring bags, a zippy pouch and knitted two scarves. Just need to do baking and pickling for the two Dads now.
Cute zipper pouch. Wonderful magical Christmas quilt! I am so happy that I visited your blog today. Thank you for the gift … :) Pat
Oh my goodness that Midwinter quilt is just gorgeous – is it a Christmas gift? WOW!
Nice fabrics for the zippy! I have a few pictures pinned of bags made with metal zippers – they have a (fancier?) more substantial look than the plastic ones that I usually use – I like them :)
I have Christmas projects done already but have been working on finishing off some Halloween goodies (finger puppets) – when I get the puppets done I can concentrate more on Christmas :D Last night I changed around my gift list so I could use fabric from stash instead of having to go out and buy special prints for the Christmas aprons I want to make – this way I can get them done sooner :) I'm also going to pick some Christmas finger puppet patterns (free tutorials or $$ patterns) and make a list of felt colours I need to pick up – the felt is on sale at my local fabric store for 40% off so I'd like to get it sooner rather than later!
Sweet pouch! I had to make some spooky projects first and I'm not sure when I get back to my list since there are some other with deadlines even closer than Christmas. Love your quilt.
I like your ratios- finish 2, start 4. At that rate you will be able to finish everything if you just go back in time…
Groan, im still working on summer projects! you've got some lovely finishes though
Wow, love your Christmas project…very creative.

Well zilch on Christmas sewing for me! I love your finished Christmas quilt. So whimsical and fun! Will look great on your wall when ready to trim for the season! Pouch is adorable tooI
Love your finish! No work on my Christmas stuff either!
Progress always starts with the first finish…you're way ahead of the game!! It is all looking so good. Keep up the great work.
