and decorating our family tree
that sewing has taken a back seat. It has been worth it though! This is Hurst's second Christmas, but this year is much more fun than last year! He is able to participate a little bit, and last year he was too little to do anything really, but nap. This weekend we are taking him to see Santa and we are hoping he won't cry. I have taken him on a couple of "test runs" to the mall to let him see Santa before he sits on his lap. I hope this does the trick!
I was able to finish the baseball quilt this week just in time for the December 15th deadline. Oh well, it might be last minute, but it is on time! I finished up the scrappy binding earlier this evening and now all I have to do is figure out how to get it to Kate to be sent with the rest of the Guild's contributions!
I hope a little boy in the area gets some comfort and warmth from this quilt. This was such a nice project in which to participate. I hope to be able to do more with the DC guild in the new year!
I have decided to not stress myself out about the two quilts I wanted to make as Christmas presents. The people they are going to will love them just as much on their birthdays as they would have for Christmas. I only have ten days left, so they probably wouldn't be finished anyway! I am going to continue working on my tree skirt and hope it's completed by Christmas, and then I think I am going to take a little sewing break and spend time with my family. I hope everyone had very productive weeks!
