Top Secret Projects

I decided I needed to work on some projects for Christmas.  I would like to share this experience with all of you but… as the person/people I am making them for make up the majority of followers for this blog I decided I best not reveal too much.  But I think I will document my work and then post after the fact because I am finding some of the work challenging and fun!

Top Secret Projects Ahead

The first secret project is a sewing project.  Not a quilting one, but a sewing project!   I am not a sewer, seamstress!  Technically I CAN sew but I am not very good at it.  For some reason quilting doesn’t count.  So this could be an expensive mistake.  I drove half an hour out-of-town, spend and hour and a half hunting down the perfect fabric, thread and other tools required (no comment on how much I spent!), drove a half and hour home, started cutting the fabric and realized I may have bitten off more than I can chew!  Here is the fabric I chose… I love it and hope I have leftovers to use for something else too!

The  2nd project is a quilting project.  It was an impulse buy at the fabric store where I bought the above fabric and I am really looking forward to starting this one.  BUT I made myself a deal, if I want to work on this I have to finish the sewing project.  No sneak peek pictures of this one for you… I don’t want to give it away.

I also have a 3rd secret project that I have had in my “stash” of projects for a long time.  It is also a quilting project but also an applique project.  I am pretty new to the applique thing so it could be interesting.  No sneek peak of this one either.

With any luck, I will have all three secret projects ready for Christmas!

With even more luck, I will have them finished for THIS Christmas!

So I ask you to wish me (more) luck!

What are you working on for Christmas?
