Or is there?
There are less than six weeks until Christmas and Kwanzaa, and less than three weeks until Hanukkah. So how much sewing time is left?
Enough to make any of these projects?

If you’ve still got some holiday sewing to do – what are you going to make? Is it for decorating – or are you still making “handmade” gifts?
Or is your list done… right up until you see some of the wonderful projects posted during the 12 Days of Christmas events done by Sweetwater Designs and Fig Tree & Co.? (The Sweetwater girls started last week and are on Day 3 while Joanna won’t be starting until Saturday, November 28th.)
My “made for Christmas 2015” sewing is done – I think. I could still get the crazy idea that I can start-and-finish something. I did get a Christmas quilt made using Kate Spain’s Jingle collection and the Lollies pattern by Thimble Blossoms – Camille Roskelley.
While I love the aqua blue mixed in with the red and green, I know that not everybody does.
What are your favorite colors to use for decorating during the holidays?
Blue and silver for Hanukkah? Red and green for Christmas? What do you think of adding a little bit of aqua or hot pink – a “Shiny Brite” kind of Mod holiday? Or do you fancy the Scandinavian palette of red, white, gray and mocha?
What about just “red and white” – or cream?
Okay, Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree & Co. does slip in a little bit of green on occasion.
Have you started decorating? Or are you like Nordstrom’s – preferring to “deck your halls” with Christmas the day after Thanksgiving?
I think you know that when I have questions, there is a possibility of a little bit of quid pro quo.
It is the season for giving, right? Or it will be soon.
