counting down

Is it too early to be thinking about Christmas? I'm one of those people that always get caught out with last minute Christmas shopping. This year I'm hoping it will be different. I'm trying the handmade approach this year....not sure how it will go as I always feel a bit nervous when making gifts for family and friends. I made some coasters from the last minute patchwork book, you can never have too many coasters can you?

I love the new Urban Chicks range 1974 which I'm hoping to make into a quilt for home. I ordered it from Pink Chalk Fabrics which has the speediest delivery. Only one week, which is super fast from the US to Sydney. Now I just need to decide on a pattern for it!
