I also quilt for charity and for the local thrift shop.
That is a really good idea....

I have a problem when I shop early. I either give the gift early, or find something else I like better. Either way I end up spending more money. So I wait closer to Christmas.

Nadine, you are my hero! I have vowed to take care of Christmas early more years than I can remember...and I have yet to do it. It's a little late to start early this year, but next year I WILL!! I really will!

Yah yah, sure...talk is cheap....lol...
I'm liking the idea someone mentioned about donating to food banks instead of buying gifts etc. I think I'll start doing that too especially when my grandkids get a little older.
