I’ve decided that I have too many things on my proverbial sewing plate. So yesterday, I spent some time going through my stash of fabric and patterns, in an attempt to make a list of projects so that I can just pick one and move forward without hemming and hawing. The list will include some non-sewing projects I know I want to do as well, mostly Christmas related. I’m feeling even more in the Christmas spirit than usual this year, so be prepared for some non-sewing Christmas crafts.
Keep in mind, the lists are not in the order I intend to do these projects. More of a reminder to myself of things I want to do.

- Ornament Making

I don’t have pictures of any of those at this point, but when I do, you’ll see them here! 🙂 Frankly, I’ll be lucky to get half of the Christmas craft list done this year.
I probably should get cracking on some of this stuff. I think the first thing I’ll be working on is number 8, as Elizabeth and I have decided to sew pants together sometime soon.
