Last year I handmade every single gift that we gave as a family. It was a lot of work, but I enjoyed every minute of it. So for me it has kinda become a bit of a tradition that I would like to continue, maybe not at the same scale as last year (8 lap quilts, 3 mini quilts, and 4 or 5 totes of varying size), as I have two girls to care for and a house to keep.
Since I started quilting I have not made a quilt specifically for my husband. I have made for my girls, my family, friends, and even myself. But my poor hubby has been left out. So for Christmas this year he is getting a quilt. Of course this means I have to be sneaky about sewing. Hoping the girls can entertain themselves every now and then so I can sneak in a little more sewing time.
Well I started today and have completed 3 of the 12 blocks needed for his quilt.
And I have block 4 cut out and ready to be sewn together. I'm hoping to have the quilt top done before Thanksgiving.
