October OMG(s)

Another month has come around again and I know that it is time to be  thinking about getting ready for Christmas but with all the uncertainty around us with COVID and having had our Christmas cancelled last year I cannot get my mind into gear as well as it should be however a start is going to be made using these fabrics and turn them into mini podlets as Christmas presents for the other three members of my Tuesday quilt group.   The plan is to pop in a couple of reels of thread as well as a few chocolates for them to enjoy.  

Making these will be my OMG for October.   

I also need to sew up  a couple of beanies and add their pom poms.

As well as try and finish off three capsule/pram covers that are in various stages of construction.     

My aim is to try and get all of the above ticked off the "to do list" by the end of the month.

Back soon and in the meantime

Happy sewing all

You are well organised: thinking of Christmas in October! I usually start at the beginning of December, or even later! You've chosen pretty fabric for your bee mates; I'm sure the podlets will look lovely. What is a podlet? I've been trying to imagine one and got stuck on the image of an oversized pea-pod with chocolates in it!

Karen what a lovely idea for your quilting buddies for Christmas. Yes Covid is just a bummer. I notice in the post above you are NSW and indeed not been easy. I am in NZ and we are locked down up north and very uneasy down near Wellington! Thanks for visiting me at Kathryn's Quilts, very appreciated.
