On Thanksgiving Day of 2012, I traced around all the feet and hands of my mom and dad's nine living grandchildren. I had big plans for my mom's Christmas present. I ordered fabric and was so excited to start the project, then the fabric got back ordered, and then never came. So my sweet mom ended up getting a case of paper towels for Christmas. No kidding.
So then I decided this project needed to get completed for Christmas of 2013. I worked hard on it in November and December. I left all the prints from 2012, because I knew if I had to get new ones, it would never happen.
The quilt top was finished for Christmas but was at the quilter's for Christmas Day. My mom got a few pictures of her new quilt wrapped up for Christmas this year. Lame, I know.
But my dear, sweet mom is kind and patient thankfully. I got the quilt back from the quilter last week and planned to get it bound for her since she came to visit over the weekend. That didn't happen. So, guess what is at the TOP of my list for next week? Yep, my mom's Christmas present from 2012!
