So, what you see here is fleece, cotton, velvetine, 4 patterns, buttons (for fun accents), some thread, my good scissors (you know, the ones that the hubby is NEVER allowed to touch), and my sewing machine. All stacked in a daunting pile on my sewing desk. The kind of pile that scares me right out of my craft room.
But I have a plan. I'm going to stack it all under a table on the other side of the room, and only pull out the one piece I need to do one project at a time. Otherwise, I'll overwhelm myself and have 20 half finished projects come the day before Christmas Eve that I stay up all night trying desperately to finish, until I've realized I haven't gotten any sleep, I'm exhausted, I want to cry, and I still have to wrap it all. Well, at least that's what happened last year... But I digress.
Now I'll decide what I'm going to start with, I have a long list of all the people I'm making something for (this year that is everyone). I think I'll start with some fleece work. There is a cute pattern (bottom right) that has a bunch of cute fleece hat patterns, stay tuned for the results of the first hat!
