Christmas WiP's

I am working my way through my lists.  Slow and steady wins the race, so they say.  Not sure who exactly 'they' are though!!

This week I have been focusing on Christmas.  Only 68 days to go which means just 75 to the end of the year.  All I keep thinking is '100 Day Hustle'.  I have been trying to get my Vintage Holiday quilt done which needs to be 100% completed by tomorrow to be able to add it to the linky party over on Fabric Mutt.  Last night I was working on the quilting and Mr Toyota decided to have a tantrum.  Typical.  I decided to walk away from the sewing machine so not to ruin my nice Christmas quilt so I am trying to finish it up tonight.  Did I mention it is due tomorrow?  Yikes.  Nothing like a deadline to keep me motivated!  And the best bit if I do get it finished is that it will be completed in time for the holidays!  Here it is at the basting stage late Monday night:


I've also got three white balls on the go.


Lots of you guessed correctly - they are in fact going to become a snowperson.  These are the body parts which may [or may not] be for a Christmas decoration swap...  ;)  I've already made a Christmasy bird but I think it is too big for a Christmas tree so I'm making a different ornament/decoration.  My partner has a wide selection of favourites in her inspiration mosaic so I will eventauly make her something she loves, I hope!

Linking up to Freshly Pieced for WiP Wednesday.  Gotta run - must get this quilt done!!

That quilt is looking wonderful! I've only made 9 of the blocks so far, so have got no chance of finishing it in time to link up!
I hope Mr Toyota plays fair so you can get it done!
