This gorgeous red and green bundle has been begging to be made into something for the last month or so...and I think I might be able to get enough done today so I can at least make a test block tomorrow...it's okay to start a Christmas project for next year now, right?
I did finish up my final four gifts...four fun table runners made with Juniper
Berry by Basic Grey. The prints were so much fun to sew with...I wish my photos did them a little more justice--it was really cloudy here yesterday when I took the pictures.
I assembly-line sewed all four of them...so the tops are nearly identical (although I did use two different backings and two different bindings). I was lucky to be able to get them quilted, and then watched a little television while I did the bindings.
I do have a couple of things I could still make...but at some point I know I have to just say, "I've done enough, and it's okay." I'm glad I made bags and small projects throughout the year so I had a little stock-pile of gifts ready before the season arrived. I do like doing Christmas sewing during the holiday, but I also like being able to slow down a little and enjoy the season...
So...here's to slowing down and truly appreciating the season!
