Last week I was totally stressed because I was trying to get my two granddaughter's quilts done for Christmas. Then my brand new Brother machine froze up on me and had to go back to the dealer for repair (which he still has!). When I realized I wasn't getting them done it was such a relief and the stress of being on a timetable was gone. So I dug out my old machine and decided to do a few little things for Christmas instead. Today I made a placemat and mug rug for my mom and a little zippered wallet/make-up bag. I'm almost wishing he won't get the new machine done until after the holidays!! That way I won't be tempted to pull out the two unfinished quilts.
