Some years ago, I started making each
of my kids a gift to open on Christmas Eve.
Somehow, these have always been those
mad-dash-at-the-end kind of gifts and so
are always kind of stressful. So I insisted
that, this year, I would NOT be doing it...
Less than 2 weeks till Christmas?
Heck, I can pop out two simple quilts and
2 scarves easily enough right?
Simple quilts...turns out flannel is wicked-heavy
to quilt! And, sure enough, my son ended up
being sick and camping out in the room I use
to lay quilts out for the larger work.
(like measuring the sashing)
And I kept getting headaches that eventually
turned into a migraine.
Needless to say, the craftsmanship of these
two quilts will never win a single award
but they are very warm and made with love!
(And I won't even care if they eat while using them!)
And those two scarves.....?
I'll post pics when they're done!!
Note to self: start next year's traditional
Christmas Eve gifts...uh....January 2!!
