December challenge: Sharpen your skills!

So its December- it only took me to the 2nd to actually come to accept that it might be the final month of the year.

This months challenge is to sharpen your skills on one of the challenges that was presented this month.

I would really love to have another go at making a softy this month, but the reality is that I have 2 girls to sew for, a son whos birthday is the 26th of December and a neice and nephew to sew for for Christmas. Is it ok to say that the skills that are being sharpened at my house are time management?

Would love to hear what your December plans are.

My daughters are wanting (well I plan to make them) a ruffle patchwork skirt from Ottobre, as well as a Farbenmix Feliz
I should make my son a pair of denim shorts with the feature pocket.
My nephew needs a tee with mathicn shorts
and my neice, well she is fussy, I am thinking maybe she will get something I haven't sewn. Typical 2yo, she knows what she likes, but doesn't tell us.

Ooh - choices, choices. Can't decide between making something I've designed myself, doing some more embroidery as down time from Christmas rushing around or refashioning something - that's my first challenge!

A little late taking part, but I am determined to get to the end of the year having made a good attempt at finishing the challenges.
Some quilt binding and applique are what I'm going to practice doing!
