October Stashbusting Theme Announcement

Oh Hey There!
  Look at all you ambitious stash busters! I think I say this each month but I'm so proud of all of you using your resources responsibly, putting thought and effort into your fabric collections and sewing up a storm! While things have conspired to keep me from my sewing machine I continue to be inspired by what you are creating!

So... October's theme... anyone taken a peek at last year's? Let me give you a hint..

That's right friends! Christmas is coming! October's theme: Christmas Creating

Before things get too crazy let's get a head start on our Christmas Lists! What do you want to sew this Christmas? How can we cleverly use up the stash and make special gifts for those we care about?

Or do you? Do you believe in making Christmas gifts?

I usually stick to those who I know will appreciate the handmade goodness. Since the family has started to fly the coop and spread out I've been thinking for a couple years it would be neat to make ornaments each year. Something small to not add to the clutter but special. Mostly I'm going to try to rein myself in and not get the Christmas crazies!

What are your plans? I want to see your lists! Cause we're all procrastinating on those Halloween costumes and anything we get done now will seem like a bonus when we hit that Christmas rush.

I'll stop now before you shoot me for using the word Christmas a million times before it's actually here!

Time to make Christmas stockings for the kids! I day that every year, maybe this is the year that I will actually do it!

Hmmmmm, I have not promised anybody sewn presents yet. I'll probably make PJ's for my niece and nephew because that always goes over well.

There are very few people I sew for. I might make some gifts this year and I really want to make new Christmas stockings for the family. We will see! :)

Sounds like a good idea! Growing kids are always fun to sew for!

I already made some aprons for people. The problem is, I do not want to give them away, they turned out too cute. And I don't know if they will be appreciated... Well, only one way to find out!

Haha! Well that's a good problem to have. Hopefully people will appreciate it and you'll always have the satisfaction of making them and the ability to make more.
