  1. Yes – bought a 750 QE a few months back. Played with the beading foot and made pillows for my 8 Sisters/Sister-In-Laws. I had never tried to make a pillow with piping before. Did my first one the old fashion way with my zipper foot. Will never do that again – so much easier with my new machine / new foot!!

    Merry Christmas – Monica

  2. I usually make some sort of something. Sometimes it is decorations for my home, other times it is gifts for family and friends. Often the project is an ornament.

  3. I try to, this year I had to finish up a pumpkin patch wall hanging that took me into November. That left me scrambling to get my holiday gifts finished.

  4. No, not this year! This has been a hectic year for me and really haven’t gotten into the holiday season. The outside Christmas lights are shining brightly but that’s the extent of my decorating.

  5. I don’t make new holiday decorations every year, but this year I made a new Christmas tree garland. Last year I made free-standing embroidered lace ornaments.

  6. I used to do that, but I haven’t recently. However, this year I did make a cookie “kit” for my granddaughter: apron, potholder, matching bag with homemade cookie mix inside. I’m hoping she’ll want to come over and make them with me. 🙂

  7. I start them but so far they are UFO’s. I don’t decorate for the holidays, but each year I say “Next year” and start something. Maybe this next year I will finish something and put it out.

  8. Funny you should ask – I just bought some craft cinnamon sticks to make Christmas trees for next year. The sticks will be the trunk and the tree top will be made from my Christmas fabric scraps. I will probably gift these or use them as gift tags since we are overloaded with ornaments after 40 years of accumulating!

  9. That’s one thing I don’t make. I always pick up a few ornaments on sale after the fact but I couldn’t say the last time I made a Christmas decoration.

  10. I usually make one or two each year, but nothing fancy. Last year I made felt circle garland. This year I’m focusing on making decorations for my daughter’s 5th birthday (Calvin & Hobbes theme), which is on the 23rd. I hope to make some Christmas quilts and table runners some year! Maybe when my kids are grown!

  11. I love decorating for Christmas. I have made some Christmas wall-hangings, table runners, and I made some Christmas socks with my Bernina. I even embroidered names on the socks.
