Getting WAY ahead of myself...

I'm known for getting a little ahead of myself in regard to Christmas, but even this is odd for me.

I've got my tablecloths and napkins made... (now, in my defense, Fabricland had this stuff on deep discount right after Christmas, it made sense to buy it all then. The bright patterned ornament cotton is perfect for napkins to go with the green tablecloths. (Plural, because to fit our whole family, we need two tables). I loved the fun ornament fabric rather than a more traditional formal pattern. I was already making the blue tablecloth for my MIL, so a few more were not a problem.



On top of that, I also finished the Christmas stockings for myself, husband and son. We're all quite happy with them, although my husband is a bit bemused at Christmas in April...
One thing I learned about this is that I hate duplicate stitch. At least I didn't have a lot of it to do.
The stockings were made with my large stash of Briggs and Little wools, and have a wonderful rustic look and feel to them.
Now, on to some summery projects!!

Love them all! Just think how great it'll be at Christmas, when you can pull it all out, ready to go, and not being rushed to finish them.

that's just too organized. Things will be smokin' around here after September.

You're WAY a head of the curve. And they look FAB-U-LOUS.

THANKS so much for the pattern name and number. There's a len's mill store not far away and they sometimes have some "older" things in the pattern drawers. I will go shopping this weekend with fingers crossed. Failing that I'll watch the charity shops.
Thanks again!
