I started something this year and I'll see how it pans out next Christmas. I made each of my older two kids their own little quilt item as one of their Christmas gifts and they opened them on Christmas morning. Then, on Christmas day night, I told them they could choose one of the quilts I have hung up or on display in the house as part of their Christmas 09. Of course I had my favorite quilt projects hung up and out, and while it was hard to part with two of my quilts, it gave me a lot of pleasure watching them choose what they wanted and knowing they will be enjoying them as they take them back to their homes. I think I'll do that again next year.
