However, you know I love a ridiculous deadline and what better excuse to sew to deadline in a frenzy than Christmas. Thoughts of "If I didn't manage to finish this, I wouldn't have ANYTHING ELSE to give them and it is Christmas Eve....." and "Is that burning I smell?", as I neglected my kitchen based contributions for the big day. Only joking, I managed to have just enough time, and no more, to do everything I said I was going to do and Christmas was a great day. I hope you and yours had a wonderful time.
So, on to the pictures of fabric and quilting!
You may remember back in September my grandparents celebrated a special anniversary and I made them a quilt.
And then I had to take a little break from sewing, and then work got hectic, and all of a sudden it was the middle of October. I started on matching cushions for my grandparents' Christmas present.
So, obviously, this was all I achieved until the 22nd of December! Starting something early lets you kid yourself that you're organised. Not to worry though, I had a lovely day putting the rest of them together.
Okay, maybe two days...
I am so glad to have finished them though and my grandparents really liked them. In her gift to me, my Granny managed to lay down a gauntlet:
