    Christmas quilting for Grandsons

    So far I have managed to get my before Christmas gifts finished for my two little grandsons. Christmas placemats, Santa's Cookie & milk mat, Santa's Magic Key small quilt and Reindeer's Santa List quilt to hang on their wall. My DH says the space provided to write a Santa list is too small for to small boys.

    Betty, you've made beautiful keepsakes once again. your work is magnificent!! Wonderful!
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Oh My betty! You are such a wonderful grandmother. Those young boys will have a ball with these wonderful gifts. What a cute idea to make a milk and cookie mat for santa.

    Betty, of course, they are all adorable!! And done with so much love and care. I think the space provided for the littles is just perfect.

    Congrats on being done early. I like the way you did the names on the quilts to look as if they have icing.
