When I told my husband that I plan to give everyone in the family a handmade pillow this Christmas and when I showed him the results, he said with a sad face "everybody but me gets a beautiful pillow".
Dear sweetie, do you really think that I would forget you?
Of course you get a pillow of your own!
A very special pillow, bigger and more elaborate than all the others!
Here is a work-in-progress picture:
Now I am quilting it in the mornings when my hubby is at work. He works the morning shift this week so I have to hurry to get this done by Friday.
Each year the same: the week before Christmas I start to think that I don´t have enough gifts. I begin to panic and think of additional gifts that I would manage to finish before The Big Day. Is it only me or are you doing this, too?
Well, this is why I started this tree skirt a few days ago as a present for my parents.
No time to order special fabrics or drive one hour to the next quilt shop, so the fabrics I already had will have to do. I paired the only christmas fabric I had with a few other greens and made trees, bordered them with white and found a perfect red fat quarter for the strips between the trees.
I´ll have to quilt this by machine, so wish me luck!
Thankfully we did the big grocery and last-minute gift shopping yesterday so there still are a few days left for me to work on it.
