I just love your thread. Thanks for a chance to win.
In November! Good Luck, everyone!
I usually start my Christmas projects around mid September.
yay! more inspiration!
I am never organized enough to schedule holiday projects!
Start in November for Christmas. Thanks for a chance to win.
I start looking for Christmas sewing projects around September. However, I probably won’t start sewing them till the end of November.
As soon as possible, thanks for the chance .
I started in January this year and did a little each month. Now I’m organised and there will be no last minute rush to get done in time. I’ve even started in on a couple of larger projects that I had planned on doing for next year .
I try to start early, in May or so, but don’t always.
Heard a lot abt aurifil, but never used, as its not available in india, jan is a good month to begin something as we get a month off from work.
I have yet to start, after cyber monday, I guess!
I get started in the summer because I start and stop as I have time.
Usually in December, but this year I started mid November. Hallelujah!!
I never start my holiday projects early enough!
i start holiday sewing projects in the summer.
I haven’t started yet. I do have plans to do some today though.
I work on my christmas projects when I am in Christmas mood. Usually after december 5. So I am always a year later finnishing them!
I usually start my projects in mid-late November, but really ramp up in mid-December. thanks so much for sharing
The Spool red is mine… <3 <3 <3
Right now it feels as if I’ve been working on holiday projects all year long!
usually at the very last minute!
Projects which are intended for gifts get started all year round, but holiday projects which are decor for my house generally happen in December.
Love Aurifil thread! I am currently using 12 weight thread instead of floss to do an embroidery project (in multicolour instead of red work). I’m having sew much fun! Thanks for the chance to win. ^_^
In October. Thanks for the giveaway. Good luck to everyone and me too!
I work on gifts throughout the year, but even so, I usually have a big push starting in November.
Aurafill is my favorite thread! I use nothing but the 44w on all my quilts and I would love a chance to try the others.
Oh and I forgot, I work on projects all year, but I usually start something big on Thanksgiving Day.
I start planning in October but don’t actually start working on them until November.
I try to start in the summer but I really get going in October. I spent all day on Thanksgiving on a project and have it almost completed. 🙂
I usually begin projects in the summer when it is too hot to be outside.
I usually start planning projects in August or September, start the sewing in October, and am hopefully done by the first week in December.
I start thinking in early fall, and usually am finishing on Christmas eve! Love Aurifil thread!
I start my holiday projects in November.
Sometime in November i start seeing loads of great sewing ideas for Christmas. That inspires me to get at it, although I am usually still furiously finishing off at the last minute still.
Great giveaway – thank you.
I started in September, but am always thinking of new things to make.
I do some right after the holidays, and then usually early November I realize I don’t have much time left to get thlings done, and start sewing like crazy.
I start in January. I love to sew all year!!
I started early October. Love to sew
I read about projects all year. And start them when time allows. But mostly Noember!
I usually start in October after my local guild’s big quilt show. It’s sew fun to switch from big quilts to small sewn useful items for Christmas gifts.
I start my holiday projects usually Mid-November. Probably later than I should but I’m typically doing Halloween and Thanksgiving projects right up to the wire, as well!
I work on holiday projects all year!
Thanks for the lovely giveaway. I start whenever the inspirations comes.
I procrastinate so I am a late starter. I am just now looking for projects to make and I have a whole quilt to have quilted in less than 20 days. Time to work!
I LOVE your thread!! I would love to try the 28 wt!
Lovely thread. I am working on several projects right now.
I start in January – it’s never too early.
I’ve already started and getting close to panic mode!
Not yet. I’m such a procrastinator! 🙁
Early spring is when I start!
start in December for the next year
I am not starting any Christmas projects this year. We just had my son’s wedding, and I am giving myself a pass this year.
I try to work on things throughout the year but always get stuck with too much to do at the last minute!
I started Christmas projects in September but I only hope all will be done till Christmas 🙂
The earlier the better!! This year I spent November getting all my new / birthday club stuff for December done so I can see the whole month guilt free
Usually in December!
I start Christmas sewing when I am inspired by a project. Sometimes the gift does not make it to Christmas as I love gift giving and will give the intended a “happy!” before the holiday.
I start holiday gifts in January and then rush to finish them in early December.
I started my holiday sewing in October, that is pretty organised for me!
I Christmas sew all year long! That was I’m not rushing.
I try to plan through out the year so I’m not in a rush.
love Aurifil, thanks for chance to win some!
I love to start sewing for Christmas at the end of September but I don’t alwys make it that early 😛
I start several months before Christmas.
I try to begin my holiday projects in January but of course, that doesn’t always work! I’m still working on some things for this year!
No special time to start, when the project comes to mind, anytime
thanks for the giveaway – I normally start in december !! I always say I should start earlier but it doesn’t happen !
Would love to win the thread
Fantastic giveaway! Great for my last minute projects :)! Thanks for the chance to win!
Always use your thread for piecing and quilting. It’s the best, thanks for the giveaway😀
This is my wish for Christmas…..some spools of Aurifil thread !! Have read so much and really need to find where to get it or just order on line………
Please pick me! I love your thread.
I try to start early, especially if I have to send by mail. I am not always successful!
I don’t have a set time to start my Christmas sewing. It could be early or last minute depending on inspiration.
I start my Christmas project anytime from July to October depending on how crazy my life is. Thanks for a chance to Win!!
I don’t do much holiday sewing, but I will probably start this weekend on the little projects I’ve got planned!
I usually buy the fabric in July/August and start the projects in October (On my quilters’ getaway weekend)
I start Christmas sewing in July!
I am usually scrambling by the first week of December to get started. My intention is to begin early September every yearbut somehow that never happens, lol.
I start my Christmas sewing in November. I like the pressure of a deadline!
I try to start in October, but I tend to get distracted in November, but I start over in December and get some finished. Thanks for the chance to win some if your awesome thread.
I usually try to start before thanksgiving, which means I never get finished…. Very fun giveaway!
I like using this thread.
Sunday is my birthday and I LOVE Aurifill threads.
Sometimes before Thanksgiving, but usually after and the madly try to get the done in time for Christmas.
I start my holiday shopping a couple months before Christmas.
This year I actually started right before Thanksgiving!
Love Aurifil thread
started mine Holiday sewing middle of November
I usually start my holiday projects today! (The day after Thanksgiving.) I just can’t get in the mood before then. I do start planning what I want to make in early November so I have an idea of what supplies I will need, though.
The other thread companies could learn a LOT from Aurifil…. not only do you make the best quality thread, but you also SINCERELY care about the quilting/sewing community! You are always so quick to give back. On this Thanksgiving – we are all thankful for YOU! 🙂
I start whenever I see fabric that inspires me.
I usually start in October, sometimes even earlier
I usually start in December not a fan of the craziness after Thanksgiving
I started my holiday projects about a month ago – at our guild’s fall retreat.
I start when the motivations hits me. I decide which project I have made during the year go to someone and then I hurry to make more all in the last month.
I try not to have very many holiday sewing projects…but if I do, then a few weeks before.
I always start them too late. So then they are early for next year.
I start holiday sewing as soon as fall market sewing is done!
I usually start holiday projects in August so I can take time around Halloween and Thanksgiving.
I started my Christmas sewing 1 week before Thanksgiving with a tree skirt that I “owed” my daughter to match her stockings from 3 years ago, of course quilted and pieced with Aurifil Mako 50
I normally start in October, but having a difficult time this year ~ yike!! Pass me the mojo please!
haven’t begun yet:
When I find a project that I love, I make it. kathleendotlutzatcomcastdotnet
I like to try new products and the give away would give you the opportunity!!
Usually by mid-summer I have made at least ONE Christmas gift. This year, I had quite a bit of crafty gifts made by mid-Oct.
I really have no “starting” or “finishing” time line for holiday projects. I sew all year long, save them up, then add names and distribute them near Christmas. If I don’t have enough hand made items, I go shopping, trying to make sure different people receive my hand made items each year.
I usually start a couple weeks before Christmas, get stressed out and end up not finishing anything! 😀
I haven’t started yet but plan to by December 1st. I know I should have started months ago with all the plans I have dancing in my head.
Thank you for the giveaway!
Very bad….not until last minute . Usually beginning of Dec….although I have started early!
If planning my projects counts as starting, I am always working on them! I haven’t started sewing for this year yet, but I hope to start this weekend!
I usually start them in November but end up scrambling to finish last minute.
I plan to start in October, but usually don’t get started until after Thanksgiving. And I do a lot of it the week before Christmas.
I usually start at the beginning of the year as I have two small children and it takes time for me to get things done.
I will start on Monday. Thank you for this great Giveaway 🙂
I start sewing for Christmas in January, and sew all year, making gifts every month. Thanks,
I have gotten off to a late start this year with (two jobs). I started the second week of November. Thanks for the giveaway.
I’ve already started
I start my Christmas sewing when the kids go back to school
I always try to be eraly with my christmas sewing, but somehow it seldom happens, lol! Middle of november is the time for me!
I start my holiday projects in November. Although I am planning them in October! 🙂
I start earlier & earlier every year & still rush at the end. What is up with that??
Seems I’m in the majority — I don’t start until late November! Thanks for the giveaway!
I am not sewing much for Christmas this year, but the few things I am going to do haven’t been started yet. 🙂
I always have Holiday projects on the go because there are things i want to finish but don’t and this time of year gets busy I do focus and start in Sept when the kids go back to school.
I actually started my Christmas projects in early November.
I like to start my holiday projects early in the year.
I actually started this summer. Cannot stand the stress of deadlines on Christmas gifts.
Aurifil is my favorite.
I work on Christmas gifts all year long!
I usually try to start making projects for gifts in September , not quite as organized this year . I love your thread .
I started my projects in July, and I still have a few too go. I have a beautiful dress I made for my friend that I just need to alter the straps and hem it! I love your thread!
Whenever I see something I think I can make and the recipient woud like!
Replacing everything. I could use some help.
It’s a year-round effort.
Whenever an idea hits me.
I work on them all year long if I am going to be sewing gifts.
What do you mean start? I feel like I never stop. Sewing gifts, and if I can making stuff for my house never stops.
I would truly enjoy and use this supply of thread…awesome!
i usually wait until October to start my handmade gifts.
I like to start in Sept/Oct, but it doesn’t always happen that way.
Best #BlackFriday fun ever. 🙂 Beautiful collection of threads.
BTW – This year I started in January.
thread always makes a girl smile
Unfortunately, I usually wait to the last minute–I need to start in January!
I already started sewing Christmas gifts back mid-summer! That way I don’t feel so behind.
I love to do ramdom projects. My kids will ask for something and i try to figure it out.
I start as soon as I can. Then it’s crunch time come November quilt retreat time.
I start Jan 1
I try to start well in advance, but more often I’m sewing to the last minute.
Love my Aurifil! Thanks!
I try to start late summer. But usually end up with last minute items that need to be made. Thanks
Work on holiday projects through out the year.
All year long, but seriously in November.
love your thread
I start my projects on Black Friday. My husband goes shopping, I go sewing.
I start my holiday projects early in the year. If I don’t, it just doesn’t happen! I don’t like the pressure of sewing under a deadline – enough of that at work!
I start all year long but usually wait until November to try something new
I started in July this year. It differs each year depending on what I am making and who I am making it for and how involved the projects are going to be time wise.
I start in the middle of November but I did have one project started in June this year.
I don’t typically make gifts for Christmas, too many other projects to do.
would love to win some thread. I work on holiday projects all year long but get really serious about this time of year.
I start holiday gifts as the mood strikes and time allows.
I usually start my holiday sewing projects in July! There area so many great Christmas in July demos that they get me inspired to start….usually finish down to the wire in December ;o)
I start holiday projects in September, and sometimes I don’t think that’s early enough! Depends on when seasonal fabrics become available.
I start in oktober. Like THE giveaway
I usually start anytime during the year, but often get sidetracked and don’t finish until December.
love Aurifil + sew does my machine! & love a chance to win, thank you. I made 10 cosmetic bags, starting in July.
When the garden finishes, it is time to start some sewing. I love giving home fashioned gifts and my sewing machine is my favorite tool! This year I got started in November.
I start in July
I start my holiday projects when I see fabric that inspires me, often late summer
I start in July and finish at the stroke of midnight!
I try to start in October. This year it was November and it’s still going on…….
I start throughout the year! If I have a project in mind, I start it whenever I pick out all the materials.
I usually start in the summer but this year was busy packing and preparing to move so no homemade gifts. My sewing room is almost set up to get back into the sewing grove!
Thank you so much for your giveaway. I start in the early part of November.
I try not to add too much pressure to myself. I choose one or two people to receive hand crafted gifts and start when I start. No stress no worries.
Making holiday gifts is way too stressful for me. I make things all year long, and don’t typically get over anxious about making presents for friends or family.
I started a month ago so not to be stuck making gifts at the last minute.
I love Aurifil threads and always use a midtone grey on a huge spool for my pieceing and general sewing. The blacks are fabulous! Thanks for a chance to win.
I made a Christmas quilt in January. Hoping to get it quilted in Dec. Started some other projects this month(Nov.) and have a few more lined up.
I just started my Christmas sewing on Wednesday 😉 But I use my Aurifil all year long! Best thread ever! I don’t sew/quilt with anything else <3
I start in September so they are done before Thanksgiving
I’m a late starter! Work best under pressure. Started my Christmas sewing projects early in November…..good thing I’m a night owl!!
I start buying fabric in September hoping to have everything completed by mid-December. By mid-December, my needles are FLYING in order to get finished by Christmas Eve!!
When I find a perfect gift for someone, I usually start on it right away and cross the person’s name off the list and itemize what their gift(s) is.
Huge fan of Aurifil–thanks for the giveaway! If I’m making quilted gifts, I will generally make them through the year and put them away for the holidays. However, I also usually get some last minute inspiration and am in a countdown to get it done!
I am always working on holiday projects, but this time of year the pressure starts to mount.
this year I started in May, lol!
I normally start in November… but am not doing any this year as I’m moving my sewing room… 🙂
I wish I was more organized. I did drop a quilt with a quilter in October. I’m sewing this weekend on some projects for friends. Happy holidays.
I start thinking about it as the Christmas photos start appearing – but don’t really get down to business until December. I need the pressure!
I had several UFOs started from previous years, so I started this summer getting all my projects finally finished. I am also the type(slow) that works on long term projects all during the year with Christmas always in my mind.
I started months ago! Best Black Friday Deal! crystalbluern at onlineok dot com
Wish I had started months ago
I’ve already started!
I don’t have a specific time, I tend to make things all throughout the year and put them away for Christmas. Thank you for hosting such a lovely giveaway 🙂
Christmas giftmaking seems to start later each year as I am very indecisive about what I actually want to make!
I usually start sewing in July and it gets crazier the closer to Christmas it gets! I’m sewing this weekend and avoiding the stores so this give-a-way is perfect!
I try to start projects as soon as I can or at least no later than November. I pretty much work through the year with other gifts as well as soon as I learn how to make something! Thanks so much for the giveaway!
Whenever I think of what I am going to make!!! Love Aurifil Thread!!!
Sometimes I start a year in advance. If I need several quilts done I will try to spread them out so I don’t get stressed.
I keep a diary of all the sewing projects I would like to achieve, and every new year I write down my plans and ideas. It works really well apart from the odd surprise ‘gift’….. 🙂 <3
I started my Christmas sewing at the beginning of the year but unfortunately was side tracked by other projects that I wanted to start and now I just have 3 big boxes of UFO’s!
I always wait until the last minute possible! Somehow I manage to get it done, though I don’t know how. Every year I swear it’s not going to happen again but it seems I’m a creature of habit! Thank you for the chance to win all the weights if thread. I’ve been wanting to see the difference and this is a great opportunity. Love all the spool colors too! 🙂
I work on holiday projects throughout the year.
I usually make mine during the year spacing them out between other projects.
I pick out fabric and patterns about October, but procrastinate until the end of November when the pressure starts! I seem to work better then.
I stockpile patterns, ideas, and fabric all year long. I’ll work on them whenever I want a break from the project of the week. Thanks for a chance to win!
I usually start the first week in December. Always too late. Always with too much “want-to-dos”. Will I ever learn? Nope. Probably not! LOL.
I want to try your Aurifil thread and would love to win the five spool BF giveaway…..
I try to start in September or October.
At least I completed the Christmas cards before November. They each have a machine embroidery bookmark. Now to address all 25 of them!
I have never used Aurifil thread, but have heard great things about it. I would love to win so that I can try it. Thanks for the chance. MK
I usually work on projects year round, but always find myself working last minute gifts about a week or two before Christmas.
I try and start a few projects over the summer.
It depends. Often sewing projects are started very early in the year, when I hear a hint that a friend or family member would love something particular.
When I had kids, I started in July with stocking stuffers and the little things. But now… no kids..actually no body at all..so I the only christmas shopping I do is for things that are on sale at christmas time!
I’ve started my sewing projects for Christmas gifts and expect to be “on time” for presenting them this year. Using Aurifil to complete the quilt blocks–Love sewing with this thread!! Thanks for the give away.
I sew holiday projects all year long! Great contest!
I start my holiday projects in the fall…earlier if there a lots of things to make. I’m making a child’s messenger bag and a tablerunner with two crumb catchers this year, so I started Nov 1st
I started in september!
Since we swap Christmas presents AT Thanksgiving, I sewed all of my items up in the last 3 weeks, and have had a nice no sewing break, since I was sewing up a storm 🙂
November is a good month to get a headstart on holiday sewing!
I usually start my Christmas sewing around the begging of summer. Unless something hits me before that.
I’d love to win these. I’ve been collecting many black fabrics for a project. Thanks for the chance to win some of your fabulous thread.
i love these sampler packs
forgot, i start my holiday sewing right after halloween and usually work on larger projects all year long.
I started in October, using Aurifil of course. Might try to squeeze in a couple more gifts before Christmas.
Some get started during the summer, but other Christmas gifts are made in December.
I start my holiday sewing right after the fall birthdays are past.
I am soo bad, I have boot yet started my Christmas sewing. I will probably be sewing into the wee hours on Christmas Eve!!!
Thanks so much for the giveaway,
Jacqueline in Pitt Meadows
Not yet, but very soon! Thanks for the giveaway!
I start Christmas sewing later than I probably should! Anywhere from late November to mid December. Oops!
Lordy, I don’t even know if I did the helicopter thingy correct or not!! But, I am here!!! My fav time to work on Christmas is in January…its the time I adore working with reds, and then whatever I work on in November and December is truly spur of the moment and just because it really was too cute not to make!
Great giveaway – thanks for the chance! This year I began my gift projects at the end of September…super organised for a change!
I began in October this year, but am thinking of starting for next year as soon as I finish this years, just to get them done.
I always say I will start in January… ha! But this year I got started in October!
This year, for a change I started in March! I tend to be more of a last minute person.
I started mine about a month ago.
Usually around Thanksgiving and then its crunch time to get everything done.
I usually start around the middle of November but I’m still always scrambling to finish on Christnas. Always wanting to make that :one more thing”!!
This year I started a couple of weeks ago – and I am sewing madly!
I start in January!
In November and finish up in January because I always plan to do too much.
I start in January & work on them all year long.
I start every year during the holidays and usually finish on Christmas eve 🙂 , but I love to sew!!!!
I try to work on holiday projects all year long.
I know I should start earlier, but I try to keep Christmas in December, so that’s when I start 🙂
I don’t usually do holiday sewing, but I sew sometimes for my daughters birthday’s which are in November and January. I usually start that sewing at the beginning of November.
I started mid-October this year.
Last March with sewcalgal
I started this summer-made a large rag quilt for my grandson. I’m a beginner so I’m not very fast! So I knew it would take awhile to get it finished in time. Now I am working on some placemats and hope they will be done by Christmas!
I was a bit late this year in starting my holiday projects, but at least I got going mid-November making a Christmas tree skirt for my son. All I need to do is hand-stitch some beads (to look like berries) and it’s done!
I usually start during the summer, but this year I am waayyyy behind!!! Now they’ll probably be next year’s birthday presents! 😉
I started a couple of years ago in the summer, and I’m still working on trying to get enough time to finish my Christmas projects!
When ever the mood strikes me!!
I try to get started in early summer…do ok some years..but others…like this one…I am somewhat behind! Arrrgh! Slowly catching back up…know I will make it! lol
When do I start my Holiday sewing projects? Never soon enough! I always think about it months ahead and then all of a sudden its the end of November and… OH NO! Its the end of November! LOL
I try to start my Christmas sewing by November. I did start then this year. I try to gather ideas all year and make a plan for what I hope to make for gifts.
I think and start on Christmas projects all year. I love going on quilting shop hops during the year and sometimes see something that will work for a gift.
I started back in October but finished one Christmas runner and stopped. Started again two weeks ago and now the rush is on.
I start in July or August every year! Thanks for the opportunity!
Ideally I should start my projects in July, particularly the ambitious ones but often I’m finishing them the night before I plan on gifting them!
I started last week. But i think I should have started two months ago. Thanks for asking. firstname.lastname@example.org
It completely depends on the year. Last year I didn’t do any Christmas sewing, this year I started sewing in August. But I really get going around the first of November.
Love your threads. Thanks for another great giveaway.
I usually start my holiday projects around October..thats when all of the fun mug rug swaps begin for me!
I start most of my holiday quilts around June 1st, but there are always the last minute ones and then the late nights.
I start my holiday sewing as soon as I see projects that are suitable for someone.
Thanks for the fun! I start my holiday projects during the summer.
I confess To planning in September, starting in December and generally gifting on the persons next Birthday!
I usually start in the summer, but still always run late!!!!
I usually start around the 24th of December. Last minute? Me? Never!
In a good year, October. Most years, just before Thanksgiving.
I think about Christmas all year long and start gathering ideas as soon as Christmas is over. I listen for hints as to who wants what made. I’ll start sewing right away, but it continues throughout the year scattered with other projects.
i usually start as soon as I remember that I actually want to make gifts! I’m already done this year! 😋
I started in mid November this year!
I start when I get out of the hospital which is about 2 times a month.
I usually start in November but I had surgery so I haven’t started yet.
I don’t sew Christmas gifts but do quilt. Love Aurifil thread!
I don’t make too many Christmas gifts, but when i do , I like to get it done early. December is such a busy time of year!
I usually don’t even get an “inspiration” until the day after Thanksgiving – then it’s ‘pedal to the medal’ for the next 2 – 3 weeks!
Right about now!! Yep Today is the day I’m going to set myself down and start stitching up some holiday gifts! Thank you for the chance, Your thread is THE BEST!!
It seems I am always on the lookout for something to make for Christmas gifts. It’s so much fun to do. I have just now tried Aurifil thread and really love it ! Thank you for a giving us all a chance to win some of your threads.
When do I start my holiday projects? Never soon enough. I try to start them in the summer, but usually don’t get started until October.
Love Aurifil thread.
Most projects get started at the end of summer. Others are done at the last minute because I don’t know that I want or need to make them until it’s almost too late.
I start whenever I get around to it. I finished a holiday gift in Oct and I still have to start the rest. Ugh
I usually start mid September or October. …..I’m in a rush to finish because I bit off more than I can comfortably finish I’m afraid! 🙂
i make stuff all year!
I start Christmas projects too late! Usually in November.
I always start projects much too late, usually in November!
Each year I try to do some things early in the year but then always seem to rush at the end with other bit and pieces which I see and then want to make as well..
I made 10 zippere pouches this year for gifts and they are already done! I’d love to try the different weights of Aurifil thread! svonfumetti at yahoo dot com
I don’t do Holiday sewing. Just sew for myself.
I started a few months ago, knew I had several quilts to complete. Happy to say on my last one now. Love love love your thread .
Thanks for the giveaway. I just recently discovered Aurifil and really like it.
There’s not one specific time I start on projects. November is crunch time to finish though.
This is the first year I have endeavored to make homemade gifts. I started at the beginning of November.
Hahaha – way too late! Or I should say, I start them months in advance and then finish them well into Christmas Eve ; )
In November! But next year I want to start them in January and spread it out!!
I always start in the summer, but really switch into high gear right after Thanksgiving!
I start at the end of November.
I start early, but finish at the last minute! 😉
I try to start in October but I usually don’t get everything finished.
I don’t make many gifts, but when I do, I start in November. LOL!
I’m horrible about leaving gift making (and buying for that matter) to the very last minute.
I usually have good intentions but it doesn’t always happen – too busy this year.
I start at Thanksgiving! Thank you!
I basically do my sewing for Christmas all year. But I really get cracking around October….or at least try to. I’m always thinking of Christmas gifts to make.
Whenever I get around to it, usually later than I should. LOL!
Normally mid November.
I start as early as possible once I have all my other ‘have to’ projects out of the way. So, err, usually mid December…
this year I started really early because I am having knee surgery, I suppose it was in June, and I am still not finished, I have only a couple of weeks!
I’d love to say I start early, but I do start buying fabric early!
I try not to do a lot of Christmas sewing, but I do a bunch of little gift items throughout the year, and if something seems to be “right” later in the year, I will use those items for gifts
This year I started several tree skirts for my married kids and am proud to say that the first is done and delivered and the second is ready to be quilted and bound. I also have an extra tree skirt that was not the right color for my daughter in law that only needs to be quilted and bound.
I started my holiday sewing projects in mid-November, not sure that I have enough time to finish them all but I’ll give it my all! Thanks for the lovely giveaway.
I start my holiday sewing projects too late but they eventually get done. 🙂
I’d guess November as October is so busy with wonderful fall activities.
Late summer, such as August is when I begin my holiday sewing projects.
Actually my favorite time to start dreaming is right after the holidays each year because I know what my family and friends need to complete their holiday decorating.

Thank you for the lovely giveaway
I usually start the planning as early as the spring but usually don’t finish until Christmas eve. LOL
