Fifty-five days until Christmas. Are you on schedule?
Last year, Bonnie surveyed Facebok fans two days after Christmas to see how their 2019 holiday sewing had turned out. Here were the results:
The question is, with the pandemic placing most of us some sort of lockdown for the last seven months, did you use that time to get a head start on stitching your 2020 holiday gifts?
I know I had good intentions, but working from home didn’t offer much more free time outside of not having a daily commute.
Fortunately, my “resource room” was well equipped with embroidery essentials, so there was no reason to go out for those kinds of supplies.
I have the ideas, which, for me, is half of the battle. My fabrics are organized and I like to prepare my projects in assembly line fashion. I fully subscribe to Bonnie’s prep methods so far as creating kits and gathering the fabrics, threads, and instructions necessary for each project, and that helps tremendously.
Now with snow in the air, let the season of making begin! Hopefully, I will finish ahead of schedule!
