Handmade Holiday Goal

Remember these? Last year I wanted to make lots of handmade gifts and I kinda fizzled out at the end. I ended up making a quilt for my MIL, a purse for my sister (not pictured), and the hooded towels for my kids. This year I want to again make something for my kids. I have 2 baby quilts I'd like to finish. I would also like to make some tote bags to use as an alternative to wrapping paper. Those are my minimum goals. I'm working on a top secret project, but I'm not sure if it will be done. I would also like to make one more quilt, but I don't want to put to much pressure on myself. I want to be able to enjoy the holidays with my family!
Between now and Christmas Eve there are 7 Saturdays. If I can make 1 gift a week, that's almost double what I did last year. Even if I miss a week, I can still meet all of my goals. I'm thinking of going a giveaway and a link-up of Handmade gifts. Do you think 5 handmade gifts is a good goal? Would you participate? What if you could win a prize? Leave me a comment.

I'm shooting for five homemade gifts too so I'm up for it! It will be more fun to do it together. I'm hoping to complete two (easy) projects this weekend and then one next week with SSS's help ;-)

I'm making at least 6 reusable gift bags ... but I'll probably make more and stock pile them "in case."

I might do a homemade gift for the husband and kids ... they're the only family that appreciates them.

I aspire to make several home made gifts but I can't seem to have many free saturdays to work on them...We will see how it goes!
