    I finally finshed the placemats. I made 6 of each month and made them reversable. I thought I would never get them done. They are for Christmas gifts this year. Do I get a prize for starting my shopping this year?
    I have to say that my free motion quilting sure did improve.

    That is so clever. I give you kudos for starting your Chrisitmas gifts early. Should be an inspiration to the rest of us.

    I started getting bored about April 1, but I stuck with it. I am so glad that they are done. One set of 2 each are going to my mother for Christmas, but I don't know what I will do with the rest. I figure that if I had to make 2, I might as well make 6 each.

    Congrats Mary, glad you got them finished! I only made the shamrock one and found the pattern very fiddly.

    Well, Thimble, it may have been fiddly but I really love it and think of you each time I use it - what a friend :) .

    I have started making a few pressies to put in with the main presents.... have made a couple of half towels which are gathered on to a nice shaped top which has been stitched in around the edges... you put part of the top over a towel rail and push the two pieces of velcro together.... have quite a few more to do.... have the towels and materials but lacking in time at the moment. Thought I would be early for a change !!!

    Love them, you did a great job and can't imagine anytime in my life getting Christmas projects done this early!

    warm quilt hugs, sue

    I collected them from www.animas.com. It took me a year because she only puts up two months at a time. If you want, send me your email address and I can send all 12 months.
