December Charming Girls

Somehow I just can't believe that I'm writing and talking about what I'm doing in December...where in the world did this year go? I truly feel like I was just hanging the new 2009 calendar...and it's time to get ready to hang the 2010 one. I need to learn to sew faster if the years are going to go by faster.

I have 4 things I want to get done this month for my Charming Girls goal:

I want to get the binding on my Designer Block of the Month from Fat Quarter Shop...it's made from Peace on Earth fabric so it's the perfect Christmas quilt. Sorry for the old photo...it's all quilted now...I'll take a new pic with the binding on.

I want to finish the top of the Sadie Quilt by Lori Smith...this is one of the BOM's I've been doing this year and the border kit came so that's all I have to do and it will be done...YIPPEE!

I want to get a few Tuffets made for "A Year in Schnibbles"

And lastly I want to get last month's Picnic Schnibble done.

I better get myself upstairs and start getting busy here...the month will be over before we blink!

You are a busy sewer with a lot of goals for this month. I love the Christmas quilt, and the beautiful fabrics you have used.

Good Luck on your goals! The FQS BOM is really lovely, it'll be great once you can use it!

This is so beautiful, I can't wait to see it all finished.

And you have quite the ambitious list for the month. My goal for the month is simply to survive the month LOL
