The first *handmade* gift of Christmas...

Like I told you, Lindsey and I began a project on Tuesday.
I quilted it up yesterday and hope to complete the gift today after we finish with our lessons.
I can't wait to take some pictures and show you how the finished project turns out! :)
Tonight, I hope to cast on for my second *handmade* gift of Christmas.  If 'cast-on' gives you a hint. :)
I'm getting quite excited. Seeing some of my list get checked off, little by little.
After working with cotton batting, I now have it on my Christmas list.
It was the first time I have used cotton and it is heavenly.
Love, love, love!!!!


  1. I would love to know how to quilt. I am going to have to get my sewing machine out one day and learn how to do a lot more on it.
    Love handmade gifts!

  2. I can't wait to see it!
    I am making most of my presents too.

  3. are you kidding me!?!?!? CHAS! ONE day! is that a holiday quilt...oh man...I should really get on the ball then--no excuses. ;-)

    Can't wait to see the complete finished project.

  4. Dearest Chas, Your sewing room is quite enviable. Love it. I look forward to seeing your pictures of your finished gifts. I will try and post some of our homemade ones too. You have insired me once again. The Lord's grace and peace be with you dear Chas!!
