I have been having one of those sesonal allergy attacks that make you feel all icky and the medication to make you feel better makes you feel sleepy and icky. I'm feeling much better now. I posted way back about Christmas gift ideas and I thought I would share some with you today.

I think that these coasters will make great gifts for the teachers and front desk staff. Allyson Hill was kind enough to offer a tutorial for these on her blog. I have been making them and it's some of the most fun I have had sewing yet. They are super easy and look so lovely when done. Thanks so much Allyson.

Here is an idea for the coasters. The charm packs work perfectly, I bought several packs and can whip these sweeties up fast. I purchased these from fat quarter shop and I am addicted to charm packs now.

I also have in mind to make some fabric scarfs for loved ones. I whipped up one for my youngest last week. I used a charm pack for this too. My little one was kind enough to model for me during the 90 degree fall day here. The warm weather is making me sad. I am ready for the brisk fall breeze!

I also will make some more of those headbands I posted about before. Heather Bailey offers a tutorial on her blog. I think they are super fun to make and wear.

Oh, and I cut off several inches of my hair. (my friend Sandi asked for a look)

I am working on several more projects that are listed in the tutorials I can't wait to try section to the right. I hope to show those soon.
