January Christmas Gifts Done....(and a few tutorials!)

Last night was our weekly quilting friendship group….first off everyone was in rare form…ok ladies you know who I am talking about!!  There definitely was more laughing than quilting, but even so I managed to get006 five 10 minute table runners done.  Got to class at 3:30 and by 7:30 they were done….came home and put the buttons on!  I made some last year with intentions of giving them to my neighbors, but somehow they went to other homes.   This year these are for the neighbors! Thanks to my friends Carol and Darlene for finding the tutorial..... here's the link for the runner.

Finding tutorials for the Christmas Club is so much fun, and even though I said the postings would b001e on the first and third Mondays of each month, I just have to throw a few in here.  First my friend Carol made this sweet bag…I love that pleat in the front.  You can find the link here.

 Jen already has her January gifts donechristmas_through_the_year_january..link here for the Zippity Wallet tutorial.  Then there’s Deb, she’s been a busy bee too and has her January gift doneIMG_8161, a zipper purse made out of felt…tutorial here.  Three stinkin’ cute projects don’t you think??!!!  I have become possessed/obsessed with finding tutorials….think I might need some kind of intervention or something.  Darlene and I are having so fun hosting this club,  and I hear  she has a surprise brewing for us!     Don’t forget to check back here on Monday, February 6th…I have some more wonderful tuts coming your way.  Happy Thursday everyone.

Love those quick table runners. Great gift idea. I just got three magazines full of bag patterns off my mum. Now I have to add Carol's bag to the wish list. I have made some smaller things as gifts. The bags are for me :)

What a great gift those runners are! What are the details of this club? What do I need to do? I would love to have something to get me going on gifts and be all prepared for the holidays. Is it strictly Christmas stuff? Let me know, so I can play too.
Loved Deb's bag, and love all of the tutes you posted today!!
Happy Weekend!
