Getting Ready For Christmas

Yes you read that right, I am getting ready for Christmas and given that it's nearly 7 months away I am ahead of the game. Or at least I hope to stay that way.

I decided to keep those previously made zipper bags as Christmas gifts, my son's party stored closed so I bought some toys for the grandkids at deep discounts and I finished two rag quilts. I made these bigger than the one I made for my little granddaughter and I have just one more to make.

I have to say I am kind of sick of looking a Christmas colors. I think I have had an overdose working on these two quilts but I love how soft they are. It's that Minky fabric, but I call it kitty soft..because it's like petting a kitty.

I didn't use a kit this time but found a bunch of colors that seemed to go together, a few of them were Christmas themed so it helped pull it altogether.

And ignore my husband's work boots in the photo, I didn't realize they were there until I went to post.

Here is the backside of one of them so you can see how they are flat on the back but ruffled on the front.
