I took this week off to get something done for Christmas. It of course hasn't worked out as I had planned but I have managed to finish a few thing.

Here's the carry on bags for our trip. I finished mine (the one without the monogram) back in Sept for my trip to Texas. The other 3 are for my 2 girls and my niece. I am proud of myself thought that not only are they done in time but I mastered monograms on my embroidery machine. I bought the machine used and have had to teach myself to use it.

I am hoping to post my daily progress but we will see what happens. My favorite saying is "I make plans...God laughs." It sort of puts things in perspective for me. Keeps me from overwhelming myself. I am following some of my favorite blogs and wanting to try some of the wonderful projects I'm seeing.

Back to the sewing machine for me. I am working on table runners for my SILs.

theolde stone house has left a new comment on your post "I'm just saying 2011 - Sew we Quilt ! Behind the ...":

I just recently found this blog and what and inspiration it is. I can't wait for the New Year and all the fun. Inspiration is the key for me. I love seeing all the trunk shows.

I actually have a quirky trunk show kind of thing. It's more of a collection. I collect and use vintage printed Feedsacks in my quilting and other projects. If anyone is willing to hear about them I would gladly show pictures.
