There's Always Next Year :)

So do you remember this beautiful fabric I bought (sometime in July) to make my three girls amazing matching Christmas Dresses??  Sadly, it is still in the same state as you see in this picture.  And there are no plans to try and frantically sew them together by Sunday.  I kept thinking I needed to work on them, and I would always find some excuse to procrastinate this scary project.  Then my daughter got some Christmas dresses handed down from her cousin and that was the final straw.  No sense in making more when she already has some.  (At least that is what I rationalized to myself :)  So back in the drawer it will go until next year.  and hey, at least Baby Jocelyn will be able to wear it more than 1 month next yer.  She is growing like a weed :)

and while I am on the note of putting things to next year . . . Let's see what other projects will become 2012 projects :)

  1. Sounds like you have everything under control. There is always next year for the dresses. Quilts are easier than fancy girl dresses.

  2. Things happen for a reason, we just might not know what it is. Great list, can't wait to see the Moda Bakeshop project.

  3. Oh well...there is always next year!!Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  4. Making matching Christmas dresses is definitely a labor of love... that's beautiful fabric when you get to it though! I just finished binding my Stars quilt-along quilt and blogged about it yesterday... thanks again for a lovely pattern!

  5. It'll be awesome next year!! And you are right - let the baby get a little bigger, so she can wear it for a while longer! :)

    Great project list!

  6. I disagree. Fancy girl dresses are SO MUCH EASIER than quilts. The fudgeability factor is much higher for dresses. In fact, Melissa, I'll swap you. Seriously. If you'll send me that fabric, I'll make them up into dresses for you (not for this Christmas, obviously), and you can make me a quilt.

  7. It happens to the best of us! LOL here's to less procrastination next year!!

  8. I was always planning a Christmas dress for my daughter but no chance!! Oh well! Congratulations on the bake shop project - can't wait to see it :)


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
