I didn't get a lot of shopping done this Christmas . . . with all that's been happening with Mom . . . so I decided to give quilts to two of my sons and their wives . . .
this one is the "Patience Corner" pattern . . . I had made it a few years ago . . . and hadn't used it yet . . . so it was perfect to give away . . . I also knew it was colors one of my daughters-in-law really likes . . .
this quilt is from my first Sampler class . . . the theme of the sampler is called "Sweet Stuff" . . . and the colorway was named "Chocolate" . . . again I knew these colors were perfect for this couple's home . . . it was a UFO for a long while . . . and I managed to finish it in the last few weeks . . .
both couples really liked them . . . I think better than if I had bought gifts !!

I just finished 3 more stockings . . . only 2 photos because I made 2 of the blue one . . . well that's it until after Christmas . . . I have 9 more in different stages . . . will work on those for next year . . . LOL . . .
guess I was more ambitious last summer when I first got this idea !!
well . . . 3 are finished . . . I needed these for gifts at work tomorrow . . . LOL . . . I'm still hoping to finish the others this week . . . but not sure I can get them done . . . oh well . . .
things have been hectic with Mom the last month . . . but she is coming along . . . she's working so hard in her therapies . . . saying a few words and phrases now . . . and walking about 15 feet each day using a walker . . . it's slow . . . but she is progressing . . .
Hope you all have a wonderful holiday . . .
