I really must get on with some sewing!

Francoise Duparc (1726-78) Woman Knitting,

We've had a countdown on our board at work of the days til Christmas since the 100 day mark. Mostly to wind up our boss, bless her. However it is now 77 days and I haven't started any of my Christmas gifts yet. I've decided that everyone is getting something homemade this year as this fits in with my increasing dislike of commercialism.
As much as possible I'd like to make them from my wool and fabric stash but I get the feeling I may need to buy some new stuff. Might be time for a charity shop rummage! Anyone who isn't getting something from the sewing machine or the needles will be getting baking.
My boss has suggested I offer to bake things for folk on the Christmas run up for a small fee. It's a brilliant idea as I like baking. Might look into seriously pricing that up next week.

On the none Christmas related front I have completed stage one of the baby quilt. Only 5 more stages to go! I also really need to go through my stash and figure out what I'm doing with it all. It will be the next sign up for Wardrobe Re-Fashion next week and I'm planning on signing up for life!! No more new for me, just re-fashioning and thrifting :o)
