The top quilt is for our new great nephew, Grayson, he is now 4 months old. He is a real cutie. I have only got to see photos of him,and he looks like his Daddy, so I know he is cute in person too. It took me a while ( much too long) to get it finished, so I do hope his parents will like it. I did enjoy making it. VBS****
The quilt above is for a new great grandchild we are expecting in late summer. This is the third quilt I have made in expectation of G-Grand babies. At Christmas I will have each one wrapped in the same kind of paper, and let my 3 Grandchildren choose one and whatever they get will be for their first child.That way I know they will all have one. Of course as long as possible I will make each new GGB a special one with their name and birthdate.
The horse one is for my G-Daughter. She is 12 and wanted a quilt with horses on it. Said she didn't want one with a lot of little pieces. I am in the process of making her one, but she will get that sometime after the first of the year. The binding on this quilt looks odd but the back has a lot of turquoise in it, so it is ok.The binding has horseshoes on it. The only other sewing I plan to do for Christmas is make her a pillow case to use with the quilt. The fabric is like the top except the background is brown. I couldn't find any of the black fabric around here. I bought this fabric either in Portland, Or. or Denver,Co. But she will love it anyway.
I still haven't done any of our decorations, I have planned to do that everyday, but life sure gets in the way. Today I found myself at the doctor. I have been battleing a sinus infection for about 6 or 8 weeks now. Have been to Dr. 3 times. I told him today, I NEEDED to get over this. So hopefully the new med will work.
I do have all my shopping done except for groceries, but about an hour in the store and I will be good to go.
I hope all of you heve accompolished more than me, and are ready for Christmas. I'm sure I will be, I haven't missed one yet VBG. Take care, and quilt some memories for someone special in your life. J
