Christmastime

Pin It Finally, it feels like it.
- I've been banned from the laundry room (such a pity, don'tchathink?) so that Jay can hide my presents in there.
- In the death to my computer a couple months ago, I also lost my Christmas music. So I downloaded some from amazon today. Can I please recommend this number. It's had me bawling all evening...but the good kind of crying.
- Finished my Christmas quilts
- Finished my Christmas shopping (thank you again amazon).
- We have our festive little corner of the house. (which I'd show you, but apparently my computer doesn't want to recognize the photodrive, and I don't want to wake up Steiger again by the beep when it restarts... grr... yes, I've already done this once tonight; he's a light sleeper, like his mama)...


Here are my Christmasy quilts. They happen to be gifts for the in-laws.
The first one I started last year, but being round and pregnant, I got too uncomfortable sitting at the tall dining room table which I use as a sewing station, so I abandoned it. It was improvised to a finish this year. (Ignore the man behind the curtain)

It's jolly and whimsical. And intended for an amazing scrap-booker, so I hope she likes it.
The next one was inspired by this. The fabric line is really cute, and I'm having a hard time not keeping this for myself. But alas, I will be strong, and use this to justify buying more fabric for next year.

Steiger's quilt is coming along. I notice, by this picture though, that I need to change out the far left block of the third row. Chocolate sashing is in the works. The back is minky; I hope he likes it.

Here's a smile for you.

Merry Christmas.
