This is year two of Sew It’s Finished, a group hosted by Wendy and Dawn, with the object to get things finished up that you have started and put away. This is so the place for me to be, and with that…..tada.. my finishes for the month. A Full House pillow (my finish for this months Another Year of Schnibbles), binding on my Scottie mini quilt, and the binding on my pumpkin table runner. WOOHOO!!!!
Tutorials….what can I say, I just can’t help myself. Kris at Dandelion Quilts made these two cute projects. First these sweet clutches. The tutorial can be found here at Noodlehead. Next these really cute notebooks
The tutorial can be found here at The Cottage Home. Check back Monday….there is quite a list of tutorials coming.
Brainstorming with Darlene about the Club has been really fun. Talking on the phone “in person” has really been great…like we have known each other forever. Below is what is new with our group taken from Darlene’s blog…with her permission of course!

We keep trying to find ways to keep US motivated to make a Christmas gift or two every month. We're really excited about this idea and hope you are, too.
In addition to having a winner every month we're also going to have two Grand Prize winners next December. Cheryl and I are going to set aside an additional gift every month. The number of entries you have for the Grand Prizes will be based on how many months you participated. So if you participate all 12 months, you'll have 12 entries; 6 months - 6 entries and so on.
So...............my fellow Christmas Elves will that help keep you motivated to work on Christmas gifts and make your life easier next December?

Darlene has a Mr. Linky up so you can have a peek at what others have made this month….wonderful presents being tucked away for next Christmas. Darlene will be drawing a name on Wednesday to see who will be the lucky winner of this sweet gift…..it’s finished, I just don’t have the finished picture!!
Happy end of the month everyone and we really hope you think about joining in…remember, no sign ups, just make a gift the months that you can. Now on to February!
