That may be enough to strike fear into the heart of many a crafter - especially if, like me, you plan on giving everyone at least ONE Christmas pressie produced by your own fair hands!!
So most of my works-in-progress this month will be Christmas pressies - which means I can't show you them here as some of the recipients read my blog! (however they don't use Twitter so I may be able to share some on there - search the #WIPsLinky hashtag if you are feeling nosey!)
Now there is a definite nip in the air I would love to get back to working on my patchwork cable blanket. I have only managed one more panel since I mentioned it last and I suspect very little further progress will be made this side of Christmas! Ah never mind - plenty of time to cosy up with blanket making in the New Year . . .
Last month's main work in progress was the fab retro dance dress I was making for the 60's Dance and Joe Meek celebration at Newent which was last weekend.
You'll be pleased to know I managed to finish the dress - sewing on the last button just hours before I wore it and danced the night away in it! I was a little nervous that the poppers holding it all together would unpop in the middle of the Twist but it all held together!
|the dress was made like an apron - over the head then the back wrapped round the front|
|not the best picture - but you get the idea...|
Making my own dress was immensely satisfying - I will definitely be doing it again! Now I just need to hunt out some cool patterns...
What are you up to this month? Have you started Christmas crafting yet?
Blog your current works-in-progress and link up so we can all see what you are up to - there's nothing like going public if you want to avoid projects falling by the wayside unfinished... (trust me!)
As usual I will add all your projects to my #WIPsLinky Pinterest board too - it's becoming a little #WIP treasure trove!!
