My Thieving Days are Over

First off I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year! May it hold joy for you and those you love.
Now on to my reformation. As mentioned in this post I steal covers. But I have given up my evil ways, or at least this one. I finished this quilt for my hubby for Christmas and he has been toasty ever since. It is big enough that even if I slip and steal a little there is still enough to cover him and keep him warm.
On Christmas Eve I started and finished this little doll quilt for the doll bed Santa brought to DD. I know that is totally insane. Usually I am done getting presents and ready just to enjoy the season by Thanksgiving. This year I procrastinated. Never again. To often I felt like 'Where am I going and why and am I in this hand basket.' Crazy, crazy, crazy. I have learned my lesson.
I'm glad I made it though. It goes with the chair I redid for her room. You can see it here. She was more than pleased.Posted by Picasa

  1. Em, what a lovely quilt....But Em, Em don't ever give up on 'stealing' the covers. Hubby will feel safe and secure if you do that, keep him on his toes a bit. Ha Ha. Good on you. Kind regards, Anita.

  3. Both are beautiful! I too am a cover thief, but I refuse to change my evil ways. *lol* I buy king size blankets and top sheets for the same reason. ;P

  6. Love the full sized quilt, and if I was little (I so wish) I would have been delighted with a doll bed and beautiful magical miniature quilt!
    My children are grown now and so I can relax a bit on the Christmas Eve madness (thank goodness), so i was wrapping two knitted projects on the needles with apologies and have enjoyed the seasonal break by finishing them!)
