How's your handmade Christmas coming along?
Need some last minute gifts? Try using some shortcuts and aim for smaller projects like table runners or wall hangings.

Shortcuts, you ask? Try using some notions that can shave hours off your prep or stitching time, like Yo-Yo Makers, pre-cut fabrics, or a specialty ruler-like the Dresden Ruler.
Try using a panel -they are quilter's candy! Here's a project I made several years ago with a Moda Days of Christmas panel (sorry, the panel's out of print) & the large yo-yo maker.
Making time for your projects is also hard this time of year. Try to squeeze in 20 minutes each day. If you have your project primed & ready to go, you'll be amazed what you can accomplish in 20 minutes!
Because which gives you more joy?
