No more Xmas Requests!!!!!!


A lady I work with asked me this week if I could make a Baby Quilt for her new Granddaughter, after I said yes I realised that she wants to give it to her for Christmas, Yikes...

We worked out a size; it was going to be a Bassinet size.

Ok I can do that, Still 3 weeks to go.

The next day she asked could I make it larger as she would like it to go to her first bed as well, Bugger.

So I have made a large cot size quilt and this is the design I have come up with...

The Brief was: pink and mauve and something girlie!

Well I had this fabric in my stash called
Where the Wind Blows by Melanie from Melly and Me .

Perfect!!!

Then I went online to order backing at Under the Mulberry Tree and found that they have it on special for $2 a fat quarter, $8 a Metre.

Awesome!!!!!

So I ordered a Backing, and some more Fat Quarters to put back in the stash, for the next baby quilt I make.

Now I just have to Finish the Quilt that's loaded on The Gammill, load this one, Quilt and Bind it , all in two weeks, whilst working the two busiest weeks for the whole year...

I’m Tired just thinking about it...

Oh Linda, I have every faith that you will get it done. I've worked a few silly seasons in the woolworths c/office and f/end (Echuca of all places) so know what you have to get through at work!!! Looking forward to seeing the final product :o)

You can do it. I know you can. I too have just started a quilt, that I want to have done before Christmas, and working at the Post Office, these next 2 weeks will be our busiest as well. But I will get mine done too. I have 2 Thursdays between now and then that I am off, and DH is working that I can get it done without him knowing, because it is for him.
