New Years Resolution !!!!

My New Years Resolution is to not leave my Christmas sewing till the last minute again.  I am making these gorgeous little bags from Val Lairds Blog ( free patterns).  I am making the bags out of Christmas fabric ( a great way to use up all that fabric) and then embroidering a design with the persons name and the year 2012. I am going to make a set for all of my family and what a great gift for workmates and friends personalised with their name. Could even make some Birthday ones. The bags have plenty room for little gifts. I have made these two and still have about forty to go.  I also have some little Christmas trees to make and they will use up a lot more of bits and pieces I have lying around my sewing room. I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year and may all your deams come true.

    I am still sewing for Christmas! So either I am behind or I am ahead for next year! This was my most disorganized Christmas. I am trying to plan for next year. My plan is to make something for Christmas every month. Let's hope that works.
