    Christmas 2012 will be here before we know it

    I came up with a couple new gifts for xmas this year. Man gifts are hard to find. My sweetheart has a man cave dedicated to his music and he is always cold so the gifts were insulated drapes, for darkness and sound and a quilted cornice covered to look like a keyboard. To finish off the gift was a quilted flannel bathrobe, using up flannel I bought for a quilt I never made. I'm posting this now because the flannels are really great sale prices now. Hard to get him out of it LOL

    How big did you cut your piano keys? I really like your valance and am thinking it would make a great keyboard cover.

    I can see why he does not want to get out of that robe. It is awesome! And I'll bet it is the most comfortable robe ever.

    Very creative on your quilted cornice. Adds that special touch to his "man cave".
    The one who dies with the most fabric wins.

    Wow I am amazed at how creative that valance is. I can do great with patterns but dont ask me to create something out of thin air. You did a fantastic job!
