WIP Wednesday - Countdown to Christmas!

So...only 5 days until Christmas is upon us...anyone actually ready??  My final order went out this morning, now to start working on everything else...and maybe catching up on sleep...I've been seeing a bit too much of 1 am in the last week...
Last purse...random picture because I don't want to reveal before Christmas!

Minky wasn't actually that bad to work was the cuddle fabric that tried to attack me when I cut it...which didn't deter me from wanting to try turning my extra scraps into some cute stuffed animals next week...I may be a glutton for punishment!

Back of one of the minky blankets.  My dot backing was slightly too small, so a stripe of the fun fabric to the rescue!
I think the rest of this week will be sewing some pj's for my kids (and maybe myself) - time to start using up the fabric collection!  Next week will be organizing and cleaning the craft studio, so I should run across some fun stuff!
I need a pretty cunning pattern for this fabric...
More fun fabrics demanding to be sewn!

Current Projects:

  • Minky Blankets, orders for Star Wars, Harry Potter, and Disney sayings

  • C2C (corner to corner) baby doll blanket crochet with some random scarfie yarn - Need to figure out what hook I was using...
