One xmas gift done

I made a small bit of progress! I got a xmas gift done (and one for me)! I found if I make something I like for a gift, it is better to make 2 right away. Otherwise I never go back and make one for me. Aren't they cute!

Work has kept me quiet lately. My boss has been joking I"ve been putting in 22 hour days - but he knows that isn't too far off! So whenever a new dept comes asking for my time he says as long as it fits in the 2 unused hours of my day! So that gives you a bit of an idea on why I"ve been so "quiet" lately!

You have been so busy for such a long time . . . and you've been missed!
Those are darling little wall hangings - very clever to make one for yourself at the same time *s*

Those are really cute! I've seen the pattern, but never knew where to get the cute spool hanger. Good thinking to make yours at the same time!

Am I on your Christmas list? *s* The little quilts are so cute. Is it a commercial pattern?

Lucy said...

Well at least in the two hours you made two very cute little quilts :-))

I just love this mini quilts. They look so cute and heart felt for the Christmas! Making the second quilt at the same time or right away is a good idea!!

Love your creative stitchery, too!

Those are darling Dawn! I think making two at a time is very time efficient, plus you get to keep one! Love your brother's quilt! Really wonderful colors. What a beauty!
