However all seemed to get completed in time, even if there was a fair bit of stitching completed on Christmas Eve, once I had our daughter safely out of the house. So, the kimono wedding quilt is fully quilted and bound and just waiting for a label.... I'm very pleased with it and am sure there will be a few more of these to be made. I had an idea a few days out from Christmas that I could do something with blankets and doilies to create a picnic blanket for an extended family member. However, my daughter found me in the sewing room as I was in the early stages and declared that it was far too good to leave the house as she loved it and wanted it for her room.... What can you say? The next day she was asking what I was doing with the blankets and I told her that I had put them away as I had no time to work on it. In reality I was frantically stitching every time I could get her off the property or into bed.
The result was this blanket which is now on her bed - she was delighted, so it was an effort well worthwhile.
I joked to one of my friends that I am planning a book to be published next your - 101 Things to do with Old Doilies.
Just as well I have so many of them waiting to be played with and made into something new...
And I've also been hard at it with the angels - I think I've made around a dozen of these this year. There's not too much left of my baby blanket, which they were all made from - I will have to make sure I make one each for the children before it is all used up.
We had a lovely Christmas - lunch for 12 was a smaller affair than we have had in recent years, but a good time was had by all.
Best wishes for a restful holiday season to you all.
