Default 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.
