    Last Minute Gifts done in 1 week!

    I have been away from the board lately because I've been busy making super fast last minute gifts for all my cousins kids. At first, I bought toys because I was going to drive to NJ, BUT after lots of phone calls from my mother and speaking with my boyfriend, I was talked into taking the train! So I returned it all, and decided to make quilts. All but one that needs binding are done in 1 week timeframe! I'm not completely happy with all of them as I know I could have, would have, and should have done better, but for now these will have to do. They have been laundered that's why it looks wrinkly, but I'll press them before I give them out.

    The last photo is a D9P that I did a while back, and I will give that to my grandmother!

    The next round of gifts are potholders for the aunts and uncles and with one more week before I leave, I have to get those semi done and do the binding on the train or when I get to NJ.

    This is what happens when I procrastinate

    I'm such a worry wart.... Lol! I hope they like them, even tho kids want toys, I just could fit it into the luggage and it costs more to ship. I could have bought toys in NJ, but with my vision disability and crowded places/malls, I don't think I'd make it.

    That's sure a job well done -- a very ambitious project -- all very nice snuggy quilts.

    Just a note, tho, while your font change is colorful and pretty, it's a little hard to read.

    After I posted I was trying to change it but it didn't work out. Sorry about that!

    Six in a week? My dear, you must be certifiable! These are perfectly awesome and you will receive just as much love in return. Procrastination???? I think not! Enjoy the fury while it lasts. Wish I had your stamina.

    You made all of those in one week? When did you sleep? They are all adorable and I am sure they will be well loved and used . Better than a toy any day in my book!

    I still can't believe I did that much in a week! I don't even do that much in a year LOL! Also, I cheated... there's not too many quilting involved, just stitch along the blocks. Which made it go pretty fast. If I really did more stitches inside the blocks then it would have taken forever! Oh well, there's next years, so I better get started when I get back from vacation!
