Sunday stashbusting

Got in just under the wire's still Sunday but not for much longer. It feels so good to be finally sewing again. Putting the anniversary quilt in a bag was just what I needed to get going. I also did something else. I've given myself permission to NOT make holiday gifts this year. If I end up with a few, so be it. If not, life will go on. I was out of the quilting mood for so long that to try to catch up now would be silly. So after I spent 6 hours on schoolwork (good thing I get such an incredible salary that compensates for my working on my own time, on a Sunday......ROFL!), I made luggage tags. As I said in my post a few days ago, they don'tbust alot of stash but fabric off the shelf is fabric off the shelf. This is as far as I got before I just got plain tired.
All they need now is turned and finished. I also cut out two aprons from some $1.00/yd denim that I just had to own......2 yrs. ago! 1 1/3 yds / each one and I still have leftovers!

Doesn't it feel good to make a decision that let's you feel like you're off the hook! I hope you get some sewing time this week and you are able to enjoy every minute of it!

I'm so with you on the holiday thing! This year I've told myself, no quilts for a gift. I did 4 quilts in December last year and was really exhausted. That's no way to enjoy the holidays!

A few quilty gifts may "slip" out, but I have back up plans if that doesn't work. :)

LOVE those tags - I've made quilt blocks for tags, but not with any allowance for the ID. You've come up with a great solution. Can you give us any more details about the vinyl part?
