    dd, sorry she gave away the gift, but maybe he never commented on something b4 so this was something he really loved. still, she gave away a gift. make her another one and tell her to keep it. it hurts when we put effort into a gift, and someone give it away. about 28 yrs ago, I made my brother a quilt, when I went to his place and saw holes in it, I wanted to cry. he let his dogs chew it. I no longer talk to that brother, the quilt was just the tip of the iceberg, what he did was even worse than that. but people say, when we give it away, it's no longer ours. so I guess that's what we have to deal with when we make beautiful gifts.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I have already started making little ornaments for the nursing home, They need about 140 so have to get busy early. We plan on making a card to go with them. All summer have been crocheting preemie baby blankets for the Levine children's hospital . There is a group of 3 or 4 that work on these projects. We just love doing this sort of things.

    can you give us an idea of the ornaments you make, or even better a picture?

    Lynnie, your quilt sounds awesome. Looking forward to seeing a picture when it's completed.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Have thought of the aprons for my 2 DIL's, maybe also pretty potholders/dishtowels, also like the cookie cutter and recipe idea. My aunt gave me a little dress that you tie onto the dish soap bottle, it had a pocket, and a little saying about holding your rings while you do the dishes, really cute, but nowadays they all use dishwashers. I hate dishwashers, rather have another cabinet in its place!

    Linnie, we are making Christmas tree ornaments out of felt, your choice of colors, Using a cookie cutter for a pattern. making a front and back with a little stuffing inside and decorative stitch around the out side. decorating them. putting a gold cord to hang by. This will be something they can unwrap. we are also making each one a card to go with it.

    I made 2 of my DGD's quilts, but that's as far as I've gotten.
