    [X] Embellished Brown Paper Sacks for Party Goodie Bags (24)
    [/] Space themed Altoid Tin Set (gift)

    Twins Birthday, End of Jan - Recipe Binders - wanted to finish for Christmas but ran out of room in the boxes to send so I gave up. Going to try and get done!!! --- DONE!

    Misc. Things

    [/] Easter Class Treat TBD (25)
    [Skipping] Speckled Egg Easter Wreath
    [Skipping] Felt Easter Garland, Design TBD
    [Still looking for right yarn] Jumbo Yarn Afghan - DH Birthday
    Sisal Waste Basket (for downstairs bath) - Hot gluing sisal rope around mesh metal basket I picked up at a garage sale
    Painted Mason Jar Set - End of year teacher gift, one will be red with green felt leaf tired on, one will be yellow to suggest a pencil - still figuring out embellishment and one will be chalkboard black
    End of Year Gifts for 2 Aides, TBD
    Father's Day Gift for DH - TBD, will make something with DS
    Toy, TBD for 5yr old girl birthday
    Various handmade cards for birthdays, etc. (39)

    Christmas List so far is as follows:

    - Winter Swags (Not really Christmas but want to have done to put up when Christmas comes down next year - I've got most of the supplies purchased at the after Christmas sales and I think I may have all I need to assemble - these will go up on the French doors in the living room when the big tree comes down)

    - Red Felt Tree Skirt with Applique - Would really like to do this for under our big tree. Need to make sure I can make the pattern first then I'll order the wool blend felt. Will probably do black felt applique - will be fun picking the design!

    [Almost done!] Embroidered Sheet Sets (2) - Will embroider simple design in black on the pillow cases and flat sheets

    - Custom Cord Wraps - These will be for DH, you drill a hole in synthetic wine corks and add knotted bungee cord material - thought they might be useful for him out in the garage and will make a good stocking stuffer

    - Felt Ornaments, Designs TBD (20)

    - Salt Dough Ornaments - Will make with DS to give to various family members

    [In progress] Felt Sunglasses Cases with Felt Applique and Embroidery (7)

    - Felt Poppy Decorated Clothespin Magnets (4 sets)

    - Felt Tote Bags (2-3) - Plan to make the bags including felt applique and embroidery

    - Red Burlap Wreaths with Embroidered Ribbon Bows (2)

    [In progress] Felt Covered Meade Notebooks (5)

    - Felt Hot Water Bottle Cover with Applique and Embroidery (1)

    - Ribbon Paperclips (3 sets)

    - Embroidered Umbrella (1)

    I did a glass block with a nativity scene on it for my mom for Christmas and she really liked it so I am thinking about making one for various other members of the family for Christmas. The kids want to make ornaments so that will be on the list. I made a rice bag for my dad but I am thinking about making some pocket size rice bags for him and my kids to keep in the coat pockets.

    AJ, as usual an amazing to do list.
    I notice that you use a lot of felt. I have only done one project in felt but am going to do more this year. Will do decorations for work people using felt.

    Picked up some fabric for my mums covered journal. Also picked up another calico bag that I will applique. Inquired about sock wool and will pick some up at some stage.

    ooops was forgetting about the Easter bunny, will look at my yarn for that.

    I'm thinking I could crochet some hats and scarves for the homeless for next winter with my yarn stash

    Lucie, hats and scarves would be a great item to donate to the homeless, what a wonderful thing to do.

    My list is Christmas gifts and things that I can make using my overwhelming stash of fabric and supplies.

    Nutcracker themed quilt for our son. Have most of the fabric for it.

    Ornaments- Christmas bulbs with lace jackets (9 sets of 4). I bought the bulbs after Christmas. I have 1/2 of the jackets stiched out.

    Embroidered kitchen towels (9 sets of 3). These are finished!!

    Christmas fabric gift bags - I have a ton of fabric. Then I can get rid of my paper gift bags we reuse every year.

    Lap quilts for the nursing home. The nursing home where my father in law and sister in law lived have "auctions" for the residents (using play money). They are always needing nice things to "auction". Ross just loved the auction. It would be nice to donate and I have tons of fabric to make the quilts.

    Pillow cases for gifts (mostly likely for Christmas 2020). Again a stash buster.

    Scrappy quilt using more of the clothes that my mom had saved. There may be enough tucked away for 2 quilts.

    More purses, wallets and cosmetic bags. Mostly for me :rolleyes: but they would make very nice gifts.

    Holiday vests. Again for me. I made one for Christmas that I love so I would like to have some for other holidays and when I go out. And I already have the fabric and buttons.

    Reusable gift tags. If I could figure out how to easily attach to our packages. We do not use ribbon or string on our gifts because Myron ( our cat) will eat it ( he has had surgery once already for a obstruction).

    Market mesh tote bags. I've made before for Christmas gifts in everyday fabric. I thought I could make some for Christmas gift bags since I have all the supplies.

    Double sided tape should work. If tag is on the heavier side you could use foam mirror tape.

    I was thinking much the same. If you want to go to the effort and the project calls for it you could also use velcro.

    Myron's Mom, WoW that is quite the list.
    I too this year am leaning towards making cloth bags for gifts especially for DH who hates wrapping. I don't have a lot of Christmas fabric as I used it up a few years back but will try and find fabric that is multipurpose.

    I got some more tea towels yesterday as I want to make a whole set of appliqued ones for my mum. So far I have
    Australia Day (X)
    Valentines Day(X)
    Mother's Day (X)
    Winter (X)
    Spring (X)
    Halloween (X)
    Christmas (X)

    I got 2 red tea towels yesterday that will be for Valentines and Christmas, I got a grey one that I will put a snowman on for Winter and a beige one that I will put flowers on for Mother's Day/Spring.

    Need to look for sock wool over the next few weeks to start on the socks that I would like to make. Nearing the end of Summer and I am ready to snuggle in and get some Wintery things started.

    Getting through a few projects on the list. The early days of Autumn here so and hoping to get quite a few things done over the next few months while we hunker down for Winter. Would like to have most done by early November so that they can be wrapped and organised before the priority becomes other Christmas related things.
