    Good Morning!!!! WELCOME! WELCOME! To another week!

    The last couple of days I have purchased a few things for crafts. Not saying for this year tho.

    For this year I would like to do the following yet:

    sew some cord wraps

    make some potholders

    make a couple blankets for Teigans stroller

    have some ornaments to make

    Kim, you have a nice list

    AJ, cute patterns on the link you shared.

    Enjoyed looking on the blogs of the projects some of you have been doing.

    What are your crafting plans for this week?

    I finished two ornaments yesterday, one for Valentin and one for Iris (both CCS).

    Still on the priority list are the growth chart, BD cards, cuddle throw and Grinch ornaments. I started a picot bind off of my chevron cowl, but it remains to be seen if I have enough yarn. If I run out, I will have to go back to the drawing board. It will be close.

    Oh lets see. I am waiting on an order to get here that I need to get an order of 13 ornaments done each of them completely different. Told one of my associates today that I needed to make unicorn horns for two ornaments I am doing she said you will have to text me a picture I may want a couple of them too. I have already made her 6 different ones for her she said they make great gifts for family.

    Ok lets see what I can get done this week. Think I will post what I get done rather than a list this week since I need to sit down and figure it out yet

    Kim I will be joining you on the posting on what I get done. Ended up not feeling well the rest of the week after being sick last weekend. Had yDGS here this weekend and catching up on some things around here today. Hope to get back at crafting tomorrow.

    I gave my new sewing machine a work out yesterday, and it's great. It has a lot of automatic features, like buttonholes … put the button in the extended foot, select the style of buttonhole you want to sew, place your fabric under the presser foot and step on the gas. It sews around the buttonhole and stops when done. There's actually a button to push, so you really don't even need to step on the foot pedal. All the stitches I sewed were beautiful, too. My second machine hasn't come yet.

    Hope to spend some time on the BD card/flat fold for Valentin today.

    DahliaDoll, What brand machine did you get.

    DJ. Your machine might also have the feature that if you don’t raise the foot when you finish your button but simply step on the foot or hit the start button your machine will make the button hole again right on top of the one you just made. Great for heavy fabric.

    It's a Pfaff Quilt Ambition 630.

    Rose ~ Yes, it will do that. Don't foresee needing to do it … famous last words ...

    I finished the flat-fold card for Valentin. Wish I had checked out my tutorial first to avoid some frustrating mis-steps, but it turned out okay in the end. I'm seriously considering getting a Kreinik cording maker after watching videos on how it works.

    Today is sewing club and perhaps a little shopping for Dirndl trim. I might also get a BD card made and more stitching on the September CCS cat which I started last night.

    Mum dropped off a lot of knitting cotton that she cannot use. I now have enough to do knitted dishcloths for all the girls at work for next Christmas.

    Got the pj’s cut out today and now I need to make a list of all the little crafting projects I need to get finished up for this Christmas so I don’t forget anything.
