    I am done worn out and done. I have too much to do and really no time left to do it!! I would love to snap my fingures and all of it would be done. I have resinged myself that my grandmothers Double wedding ring will be my last quilt. the others will just have to wait. Grandmas is more important. I have all the stuff cut out and ready just need someone to make it for me :)

    If it wasn't a double wedding ring, I might volunteer to help. I still have one of those not finished!

    This time of year things do get a bit overwhelming. Step back if you need to, but don't give up completely. Take baby steps and you can accomplish a lot . . when you're ready.

    It has yet to be cut out. I really want to surprise my grandma at our first Christmas party since Grandpa passed the look on her face when she described the DWR was priceless to me I just need that kick in the butt to get moving on it!!

    It is hard to stop ourselves from the craziness of trying to do too much these last few weeks... :D:D:D

    You need to get real about this before you lose the love of quilting. 14 days to make a DWR just isn't in the scheme of things. It would take me months. Why would you want the stress. I know you have other things to accomplish before Christmas.(cooking, shopping, wrapping, bathing, sleeping etc.)
    Relax, release the pressure valve and enjoy this season. It's a blessed time, accept yours.
    Make a plan to complete a beautiful quilt (well made and without rushing) dudring the next twelve months. Grandma will love it no matter when it gets there.
    Let yourself have a Merry Christmas.

    It's so easy to feel pulled in lots of directions this time of year. So much to do!! Too bad they gave the elves to Santa--I know I could use a few.
    I think it's neat that you want to make the DWR but (for me at least) it would be impossible to do before Christmas. Can you cut and piece some of it? At least you'd have something to surprise her with and you can finish this after the holidays. Even if you gave her a pic of the pattern and fabric she'll love it! Good luck.

    Do a pillow sham or wall hanging out of just a couple of blocks-then she'll have a piece of it and you will have time to do the whole quilt without the deadline of Christmas looming. Don't forget to ENJOY the Christmas season. It's over too soon to stress through it.

    I agree with shequilts! You will get it done but give yourself the time to ENJOY doing it!
