    Mahalo Vickilynn!!

    Okay - well Walmart did not have any of those luscious placemats left, so we tried KMart. Found a long table runner there which will make serveral totes. A placement with designs on both sides which I will separate and make into a large tote. Will show pictures when they are done. Hope to post the placemat-tote tutorial this weekend.....really easy - you'll love it!!

    Me too MM, I tell myself I can't start something new until I am done what I am working on right now or else I would have projects laying all over the place and my house would start looking like those on the show 'Hoarders'!

    One thing at a time??!! Oh my. I'm not sure I can do that. I like the show hoarders- it makes me clean my house!! I am working on something for myself for the first time in years. When that's done - I have the yarn for some Christmas placemats and coasters. I hope I can get them done by the end of the month!

    I have to get started on this or there is no way that I'll get Christmas done in time.

    I'm making all our immediate family blankets of some sort. Either quilts, afghans or fleece blankets.
    So that includes:
    My Mom
    My Dad
    My Sister
    DH's Mom
    DH's Dad
    DH's Sister
    DH's Sister
    Neice
    Neice
    Neice

    Im also making a quilt for dd's bed and all the bedding for the new baby's room. These two aren't for Christmas though.

    I started on my FIL's afghan this afternoon and got 4 rows finished, lol. Long way to go.

    Manda - you can only go one row at a time - starting now will give you a great start on your Christmas gifts!!

    Thanks for the encouragement. It just seems daunting when you look at it all on paper. On top of the other birthday and Christmas gifts. Not to mention the things I want to make for dd and the new baby just because... lol

    I started my FIL's afghan but had to frog all but the first 2 rows to start again because of a miscount that messed up the whole pattern. Ugh. But I am back to where I was when I found the problem and now I'm going to be.

    Glad you found the error so soon and was able to correct it. I think my lists are always daunting when I look at the whole thing - always feel much better when I just do things instead of thinking about them!! Good luck!!
