Ho Ho Ho To Do Lists [Making Christmas Link Up]

I am literally taking a break from quilting the H&H Quilt to quickly write a post to link up to Janine at Rainbow Hare Quilts.  I missed her link-up last week...because I was announcing her win of the 55 Fun Followers Giveaway.  [I know Janine has been busy and probably hasn't read her "you won" email from me or read MRL in a bit so I don't think she knows she won yet...  Heh heh, Janine hopefully you are checking out this post!!!  ;)]

So onto this week's Making Christmas...

As I wrote on my last Making Christmas Post I figured out my Christmas palette and fabrics for this year. Here they are in person!

In case there is any doubt.  I LOVE THESE FABRICS!!!  So what could I possibly be making with these lovelies?
- 12 Days of Christmas Sampler QAL - allegedly starts tomorrow
- Table Runners - design figured out, have to find time to cut/sew you know the usual...

Plus I have my To Be Made as Gifts List:
- 3 Crayon Rolls
- 2 Marker Rolls (hey, what can I say these kids are picky)
- Finish my secret project
- Get the TBs top done (pfft)

Oh AND I'd really like to make the girls stockings.  I have stockings I can use for them...but they aren't special Just For Them stockings.  So it would be cool if I could get myself together enough to make ones just for them.  But, I'd rather wait another year if it means making them better as opposed to rushing.  Which is why it goes on the floating list...i.e. this paragraph.

Ooo fun fabrics for Christmas. Is Mr MRL happy too? So what did you decide on for the table runner? Or is that a big secret too? :P

Great fabrics for Christmas - hope you get some of the items ticked off as I'd love to see the runners!

I love the fabric! But what is the difference between a crayon roll and a marker roll? Are you using a tutorial?

Janine said...

OMG I won! I can't believe it! I was going to say what fab fabric and I can't wait to see all you plans coming to life and now I find I've won a giveaway! It's true, I have been busy and I've had a dire couple of weeks so this is really cheering me up. Thank you so much :) Off to scrutinise my emails!

Lovely fabric!You have a great list and now you`ve got me interested in the sampler QAL...I`m a little addicted to QALs if truth be told. I really think I need to make a stocking for my little guy as he would love one but it would probably have to have dinosaurs involved in the design!

I love your fabric choices! I also laughted when you said it was "allegedly" starting. I saw the first block and while I like it, I'm not into foundation piecing so I may be passing on that QAL. Or I may figure out how to make it another way. I'm going to wait to see the next block before I really decide.
