A Lovely Year of Finishes - November Goal

November 1st arrived with a bit of fall-ish weather here in SE Texas. I'm excited for cool weather and the start of the holiday season! And this year I am determined to get my Holiday crafting completed early. No midnight sewing sessions for me!

As of now my to-make list includes a quilt (which I'll piece at an upcoming retreat, and quilt sometime in December) and teacher/staff gifts for Megan's school (which is totaling 14 at this point!!)

211:365 You know those ideas you get as you're drifting off to sleep but never can fully remember in the morning... Well this morning I remembered and now I already have a plan for teacher Christmas gifts with this Grinch panel. Yay!!

I'm going to be turning this Grinch panel into mug rugs and package them up with some of my favorite chocolate-caramel snack mix.  If I can get these mug rugs finished up by the end of November, I'll be well on my way to wrapping up holiday sewing.
