    My niece's 3 kids all loved their quilts. For the oldest (6) I made a barbie quilt with a pillowcase and made a smaller bow tuck purse to go with it. She said she loved it. The boy (4) said wow and then put it in the bag again. By the way when he said wow he was looking at the back and hadn't even seen all the monster trucks on the front and the little one(3) loved the sunbonnet sue quilt. My sister had to take it away so she could open her other gifts. I also made her a 3ft Christmas stocking that the quilt was in. Both my sister and niece thought they were gorgeous and my niece said she just might have to borrow the barbie quilt as she loved the colors.

    I don't know yet. USPS Priority Mail service did not get my package to NC on Thurs as expected, so friends left Thurs night for GA without it. :( Hopefully it has arrived by the time they get back on Monday. They will forward the quilts to their daughters in GA & HI for me. Guess I will find out Monday if the package arrived and next year if the kids liked the quilts. :)

    I made rag quilts for my MIL and GrandMIL (104 yrs old!) and they loved them! I also made kitchen towel sets of 2 towels and a potholder for my DD, DS, and DH with special-to-them embroidered designs. Also have some for some friends we will see later during the holidays.
    This was for a wedding, and not Christmas, but gave a special Texas Hill Country quilt to a friend last week. She cried.
    I love to give these works of my hands away. It just feels right, doesn't it?

    I made lap quilts for my 2 DD's, 1 GD and a baby quilt for a DGGD. All were loved & appreciated. GD was immediately wrapped up in hers according to her mom. :) Haven't heard from the other daughter. She had a housefull all day long.

    I made smaller quilts for two grandies, and a jewelry bag for each of them. I have to give credit to CarrieAnne, my order for butterflies arrived at the perfect time. Took the butterflies to town with us and the girls picked out the one they wanted on their bag! The 7YO sat beside me as I stitched her choice on her bag. She thoughtfully asked, "Grandma, would you please teach me how to sew those?" The next hour was a time I'll never forget. She caught on very fast, and sat next to me sewing and asking questions. The three of us were excited that the butterflies were so beautiful, as the girls shared the pack picking which ones they wanted me to use for them. Now I have two packs with a name on them! Thank you CarrieAnne, you're a jewel!

    My son loved his blue jean rag quilt I made him and my daughter loved her throw I made her (she had a toothache and felt terrible all day). My GD loved her cat pillowcase and small swing bag I made her. Great day all around.

    Made quilts for 2 GS which were very well received so I'm told. Unfortunately they live on the other side of the country so we don't get to see them very often. At least with quilts I can wrap them in love and warmth. Asked other 2 GS if they would like quilts for next Christmas and was given most enthusiastic "Yes please,Nanna"
    Have already decided what other goodies I'm going to make for all women in the family. These as well as a couple of quilts I've had on the back burner should keep my machines sewing this year. Can't wait. (Quilts will be posted in pictures)
