All Done With Time to Spare!

Hello!  :)

Yes I did it! I finished TWO quilts! There were times when I doubted whether I'd make it or not, but I did with days to spare!  :)  To say I'm happy is an understatement!!!  :)

Here's Mario & Co. ready and waiting for Christmas to arrive and my son to open it and see it. I can't wait to see his reaction!  :)


I quilted it with white thread in diagonal lines approximately 4" apart. It's bound with a solid red.

This time I remembered to take a picture of the back. It's a blend of some Spongebob fabric (the boy loves Spongebob), a yellow recycled sheet (the boy's favorite color) and another recycled sheet with stripes of colors from the front.


Of course Doobie had to get in on the action again.  ;)

I also put the finishing touches on the Batik quilt for my hunky dude. Yes I did!!! It's finished!!!  :)


You really can't see it very well but I quilted this with lines on either side of the black sashing in black thread. It's not really even (or straight for that matter) but it's done and I know he'll love it (at least I hope he does)!  ;)

Now with only a few days to go until Christmas, I started on the 6 pairs of jammie pants I need to make. Hope it goes quick. I'm hoping to finish them on Saturday as well as get everything wrapped and under the tree. Sunday I plan on baking some cookies and making a cheesecake for my dad's house for Christmas Eve when the family gets together and celebrates Christmas. I hope all goes smooth. ;)

What do you still have to do before Christmas? Are you one of the lucky ones who are already ready and waiting for the day to arrive? Regardless of where you are in your plans . . . I hope you and your family have a merry Christmas!  :)

Until next time . . .

Well done on two quick finishes with lovely results!!! Both your boys will be so happy!!! Looking forward to pictures of "the boy" and "hunky dude" with their grins and quilts!!! All the presents are wrapped, sent/piled up (including 8 quilts), most of the cooking is finished (need to smoke the ham on Monday)...laundry going now and need to clean the house. All I want to do is take a nap!!! Merry Christmas!
